CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston Police have arrested one of three men wanted in the robbery of a Sumter Street home.

The suspect, 20-year-old DeShawn Heyward is charged with four counts of armed robbery, three counts of assault and battery in the first degree, burglary in the first degree, four counts of kidnapping, simple  possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

According to police, three masked men, two of them armed with handguns and one of them with a red baseball bat, entered the residence and robbed the victims of their money, cell phones and six Macbooks.

The police report says a man was on Skype with his girlfriend when he saw an "unknown male" wearing a black mask or bandana over his face and armed with a silver handgun walk into the girlfriend's bedroom. He told police the call was dropped and he immediately called 9-1-1.

Police report that three of the victims were assaulted and treated by EMS at the scene but none of them were taken to the hospital.  

Investigators are still looking for two more suspects. They are described as black males in their  late to early 20's with a medium build and about 5 feet 10 inches tall.

Anyone with information about this incident or the suspects can call Charleston Police at 577-7434 or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
