ANDERSON, S.C. (WSPA) – Two people have been arrested for an early morning burglary and armed robbery, according to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.
Darius Tyvone Sadler and Deangelo Rashad Davis, both 24, were charged with burglary-first degree, armed robbery, and possession of a weapon during a violent crime after deputies responded to a home invasion on Leon Drive on Thursday, June 9.
The victim said that she woke up at about 3:15 a.m. to the sound of her front door being forced open.
She says she was then confronted by the two men, who were wearing medical masks.
She said that one of the men pointed a gun at her and threatened to shoot her and her 2-year-old daughter, who was asleep in the bed beside her.
The victim says the men demanded money, and then took her phone as well as some cash.
She told deputies that she knew Sadler and warrants were issued.
Sadler was seen running into a wooded area near Gray Street by officers with the Anderson City Police Department.
A person then told officers that he saw Sadler getting into a burgundy Sedan, so deputies conducted a traffic stop and Sadler was taken into custody.
Davis was taken into custody on Friday, June 10.
Davis is being held at the Anderson County Detention Center with a bond set at $100,000.
Sadler’s bond was also set at $100,000. He bonded out on Friday, June 10.
Sheriff Skipper commented on the incident:
“We appreciate the assistance of the Anderson Police Department in this case but we are most appreciative of the assistance of the citizen who stepped up and informed deputies that he saw the suspect leaving the scene.” We can’t be everywhere all of the time, but with the help of our citizens we can identify and locate the individuals who break our laws and put our citizens in fear.”
