LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Authorities have arrested two men they say assaulted a 19-year-old Ladson man in mid-September.

"The victim had obvious signs of trauma" and was taken to the hospital, according to a news release from the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.

Melonard Bennett, 33, is charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime after he was found at a probation meeting, deputies said.
