ROCK HILL — A Rock Hill man suspected in a year-old robbery was arrested Thursday morning.
Police have charged Johntrail Duncan, 21, with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during a violent crime and criminal conspiracy, according to Rock Hill Police documents.
In March 2011, a 22-year-old man ran toward a police car at Ebenezer Avenue Extension and yelled, They are trying to rob me. Two guys back there just tried to rob me.
The man told police that two men in black clothing with handguns approached him and took his wallet, $98 and his cellphone when he walked out of his apartment, a report states.
The victim told police that one of the men was wearing a black bandanna, while another was wearing a black ski mask.
Another man at a nearby apartment said he stepped outside to smoke when he saw the two males holding the victim at gunpoint. While speaking with both men, police saw a man matching the victims description of one of the robbers driving a silver Nissan.
Police stopped the car but the man, Terrell Ellis Jackson, 25, fled from officials, the report states. As Jackson was running, he threw several items to the ground and into a nearby garbage bin.
Authorities stopped Jackson and searched him, finding a cellphone and black bandanna in his pants pocket, the report states. They also found the victims money and wallet on the ground and in the garbage bin.
Police determined that the car Jackson drove was stolen. After his arrest, Jackson refused to give police information on the other masked man.
