GOOSE CREEK, SC -

Goose Creek Police have arrested four teens for the armed robbery of a couple at S & K Apartments Sunday afternoon.

Sunday police were dispatched to S & K Apartments on Farm Road for an armed robbery in progress.  The two victims, a 33-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, told police they were asleep when the suspects barged into the apartment.  The woman told police she heard a loud bang at the front door.  She says opened the door to a teen holding a gun while another teen stepped into the apartment and pushed the woman aside. 

According to the police reports the male victim said he awoke to a gun pressed against his face.  The suspect demanded his wallet the male victim then gave his wallet to the suspect.  As the suspect fled the scene the female victim gave chase on her bicycle.

When a K9 team arrived they were able to track the suspects to a home at 111 Pineview Drive.  There they took four suspects into custody.

After further investigation it was determined that a 13-year-old girl was the group's lookout on the street near the apartment.  She was charged with accessory after the fact and armed robbery.

All three suspects involved in the home invasion were charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon and kidnapping.

Police identified one suspect in custody as 16-year-old Chris Tyrone Thomas.  The other three suspects in custody have not been identified.

Eric Hazard works at H&J Seafood, which is located just down Farm road from where the robbery took place. He says this incident will cause him to be more alert, "I'm gonna be keeping an eye out a little more often with what's going on. Even with kids, you don't know what's going on behind the scenes."
