A 22-year-old has been charged in a June 2 armed robbery at a Northeast Richland apartment complex, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department announced Monday.

According to sheriff’s reports, Merellis Dixon Jr. and another suspect, who is still at large, allegedly knocked on the victim’s door at Greenbrier Apartments, on Willow Oak Drive, around 1:15 p.m. When the victim answered the door, the suspects demanded money from him at gunpoint. They then assaulted the victim in the upper body before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money and a wallet.

Dixon was arrested by the Sheriff’s Department’s Fugitive Task Force and faces armed robbery, kidnapping, and burglary charges.
