Police in Rock Hill charged two men, including one following a vehicle chase, after a man told officers that he was robbed of his rent money at gunpoint.
Police charged Tremaine Harris, 24, and Dyquan Austin, 23, with multiple charges from the Wall Street holdup, including armed robbery, conspiracy and possession of a gun during a violent crime.
Harris was also charged with failure to stop for a blue light. Police chased him in the getaway car several blocks, until he was captured in the parking lot of the Baxter Hood Center on Anderson Road, said Capt. Mark Bollinger, spokesman for the Rock Hill Police Department.
The victim, a 42-year-old man, told police he was in the 200 block of Wall Street in eastern Rock Hill around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when he was robbed.

The victim called police from a nearby grocery store. Police found a man they say is Harris sitting in a gray Kia sedan on Wall Street. Harris fled in the car and police pursued Harris before making the arrest.
Other officers arrested Austin at a home on Wall Street.
The stolen rent money was recovered.
