Mall Store Targeted For Armed Robbery

One day after Greenville police issued a warning about robberies at local businesses, a store at the Colonial Mall was hit.

Officers say around eight o'clock last night, two people tried to rob the F.Y.E music store at the Colonial Mall on Greenville Boulevard.

Employees at the store told police they confronted one of the suspects, who they believed was shoplifting. Employees say the suspect pulled a box cutter from his pocket at the employee before running.

Officers say they caught one of the suspects, 17-year-old Brandon Orenza Atkinson. He is charged with one count of conspiracy to commit armed robbery. The second suspect is still on the loose.
