Rock Hill bank robbery suspect makes 1st court appearance
Police have arrested the man they say robbed a Rock Hill credit union earlier this month.
Eric Karene Dixon, 25, was arrested Monday and charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to Capt. Mark Bollinger, a spokesman for the Rock Hill Police Department.
Dixon, a former employee at Ross Distribution Center, has a 2-year-old daughter who lives with him and depends on him for financial support. He also owes $17,000 in college debt. He made an initial court appearance Tuesday morning, when bond was denied.
The robbery happened around 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 15 at the Arrowpointe Federal Credit Union on Old Pointe School Road.
Police say Dixon entered the bank, displayed a gun to a teller and stole over $9,000 from the bank. No injuries were reported.
