CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston police have arrested a second suspect in the attempted armed robbery that happened at the intersection of Sequoia and Balsam streets last week.

The suspect, 25-year-old Bobby Eugene Warthaw, is charged with attempted armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.

Two Charleston police officers were patrolling the Ardmore Neighborhood in West Ashley Feb. 18, when they saw a robbery unfold right in front of them.

The officers were driving up to the intersection around 10:15 p.m. when they saw a man standing in the middle of Sequoia Street.

The next thing they saw, according to police, was two men running up to that man as he backed up with his hands in the air. Officers said they saw one of the running men had a gun so they turned on their lights and rolled up.

The first suspect arrested, 21-year-old Terry Jamar Simmons Jr., was caught the day of the incident crouching next to a house on Balsam St.
