COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
One person has been arrested and authorities are looking for up to four more people who may be connected with two robberies that took place in Five Points last weekend.
Columbia Police have charged Paul Antonio Coleman, 19 is charged with two counts of strong arm robbery.
Police said Coleman was out on bond on a robbery charge from Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.
Two men tell investigators they were walking in an alleyway when Coleman followed them.
Coleman allegedly demanded their belongings shortly before 3:30 a.m. last Saturday, October 26, in the 700 block of Saluda Avenue.
Coleman is further accused of making off with a small amount of cash and a smart phone, before running from the scene.
Investigators continue to investigate another armed robbery that occurred at approximately 1:00 a.m., on October 27.
A victim tells police he was walking alone near the railroad tracks at the 2300 block of Greene Street when two men approached him demanding his belongings.
The victim says that at least one of the suspects used a gun to commit the crime.
They both ran from the scene after taking his cash and smart phone.
The victim describes the suspect with gun as being a black male, last seen wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and gray pants. The victim was not able to provide a description of the second suspect.
In gathering information and following tips on both cases, investigators continue to work to determine if both cases are connected.
