West Columbia investigators on the scene of possible armed robbery at Subway on Sunset Boulevard; Suspect in custody

September 17, 2018

West Columbia, SC (Paul Kirby) – The West Columbia Police Department was on the scene Monday afternoon of a possible armed robbery at the Subway on Sunset Boulevard and North Hook Avenue. This is the one that sits in the parking lot of the Chinese buffet and the Food Lion. According to Assistant Chief Scott Morrison of the WCPD, they are sorting through what happened and reviewing video footage to decide whether the man they have in custody actually tried to rob the store or just tried to do harm to himself. 

 

The call from the store came in around 4:40 p.m. Officer were on the scene in minutes after receiving the alarm. At one point, they were afraid that the man would barricade himself in the small store when he saw the police had him surrounded, but after speaking with an officer,  he gave himself up. At one point, first responders were requested, but after the man was taken into custody, it was discovered that he had no wounds. The first responders were then cleared to return to their quarters. 

 

Chief Morrison said that it may take some time to process the scene and decide, what if anything, to charge the suspect with. He said he will update us as he learns more.
