COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police say they are seeking two alleged accomplices in connection with an armed robbery on South Beltline Boulevard the day after Christmas.

Police have so far arrested 21-year-old Brandon Scott and charged him with armed robbery, kidnapping, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Officials are also seeking 18-year-old Ravon Milton and 18-year-old Jashawn Livingston in this case.

Investigators say the robbery victim responded to an online ad for a 52-inch television and a computer on Dec. 26.

When he arrived at the residence, the victim told CPD investigators that the group walked him to the backyard, pointed a handgun at his head, ordered him to the ground, and demanded his car keys.

The victim told police that he surrendered his keys to the men, and they proceeded to steal cash and a tool bag from the car.

Moments later, the group reappeared, returned the keys to the victim, and left the scene. The victim was unharmed.

Livingston and Milton will be hit with the same charges as Scott when they are apprehended. Additional charges await Livingston for a burglary case.

If you have any information about this case, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
