Clemson University police charged a man with armed robbery and first-degree burglary in connection with the incident early Tuesday at Lightsey Bridge apartments building 7.

Joshuoa Quenton Black, 21, of Clemson was arrested Wednesday during a joint investigation by university police and the City of Clemson Police Department. He was being held at the Clemson city jail pending a bond hearing. Black is not a Clemson student.

Two students told police they were robbed in their apartment at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday by two men. They said one of the men had a handgun.

The robbers took a small safe, a television, an iPhone and credit and debit cards, police said.

Police do not believe the robbery was a random act and are continuing to investigate and look for the second suspect.
