Two arrested in Bi-Lo purse snatching

Sep 8, 2011 10:35:00 AM - thestate.com
Two suspects in an Aug. 23 purse-snatching at the 2230 Decker Blvd. Bi-Lo supermarket are now in police custody.

Julian Tyrone Wider, 20, and Dashawn Terrell Swygert, 17, are charged by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department with strong-armed robbery in the incident, which was captured on store surveillance video.

Around 1:40 p.m., a woman was approached by a young man who appeared to speak with her, then chased after her to grab her purse.

Deputies arrested Swygert on Wednesday afternoon at an acquaintance’s residence in the Gable Hill Apartments on Ross Road following tips. Wider turned himself in to the sheriff’s department Thursday.

Swygert could face charges for similar incidents in Columbia.
