SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Sumter County deputies have identified the man arrested and charged in connection with a robbery and assault that left a clerk seriously injured.

Chauncey Antonio Wright, 23, has been charged with armed robbery. He was denied bond on Monday morning by Magistrate Judge Larry Blanding.

Deputies say just after 8:30 p.m. on Friday, a man entered a convenience store on the 5000 block of Florence Highway and assaulted a clerk before robbing the store and fleeing. The victim remains in stable condition at a hospital in Florence.

Investigators were able to identify Wright as a suspect and the victim identified Wright as the perpetrator in a photo lineup. A description of the car Wright could possibly be traveling in was released and a patrol deputy happened to stop that car on an unrelated traffic offense.

Wright was taken to the Sumter Lee Regional Detention Center where he was interviewed and charged.
