Tip leads to robbery suspect arrest

May 13, 2011 6:55:00 AM - thestate.com
A man accused of assaulting a store clerk and stealing money has been arrested by Columbia police after a tip-off about his location.

Michael Thomas Richardson was arrested Thursday after a Crime Stopper tip. He is being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center on a charge of armed robbery and first-degree assault and battery.

Police say a man identified as Richardson walked into a Circle K on Garners Ferry Road around 3:20 a.m. Thursday and demanded money from an employee, warning that he had a gun. The robber walked behind the counter, struck the employee on the head, took some money and left on foot.
