ROCK HILL — Police on Tuesday arrested a man they say robbed an intoxicated man stranded after his moped broke down earlier this month behind a Rock Hill recreation center.
On Nov. 1, a 61-year-old man told police a stranger offered him a ride after his moped stopped working at the intersection of Mount Gallant and Celanese roads at about 6:45 a.m., according to a Rock Hill police report. The man told police he was too drunk to remember was kind of car the suspect had been driving, but he did recall that the driver dropped him off at the Boyd Hill Recreation Center, pulled him out of the car and shoved him to the ground.
The suspect went through his pockets and took $300 and his wallet, the report states. The robber then drove away. Police identified Anthony Crowder, 31, as the robbery suspect and issued warrants charging him with strong arm robbery.
At about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, police stopped Crowder on Ogden Road for an undisclosed reason, according to a second Rock Hill police report. Crowder gave police a false name and date of birth, but officers realized his real identity and took him into custody.
