COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Columbia police officers have arrested a 21-year-old man accused of stealing a vehicle from a woman at a fitness center last month.

Michael Dashawn Davis is charged with carjacking and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred at 7531 Garners Ferry Road shortly on June 19.

The 69-year-old female victim tells officers that as she was preparing to leave in her car, an armed man approached her and demanded her vehicle, a Ford Escape which also contained her purse.

The victim was not injured during the incident.

Davis is housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC) on a $75,000 bond.
