A 35-year-old Clinton man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after a robbery was reported in Claxton, authorities said.
Anderson County Sheriff’s Department deputies were called to Bull Run Park on New Henderson Road at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a robbery of an individual. A Claxton woman stated she had been robbed at gunpoint by someone she had known for about six months, Chief Deputy Mark Lucas said.
Bradley Ray Perkins, 35, of Fowler Lane in Clinton, allegedly called the victim and asked to borrow some money for food, Lucas said. She met Perkins at the park, where he was reported to have displayed a handgun and robbed her of $250, Lucas said.
Perkins was identified by the victim and a witness who gave an address where Perkins was living.
Lucas said deputies and investigators located Perkins at an apartment on Fowler Lane in Clinton. After an investigation, he was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, and theft.
Perkins is currently being held in the Anderson County Detention Facility in Clinton. His bond amount will be set at arraignment.
Additional details in this case are not available at this time, Lucas said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
