Four teens have been arrested in connection with an assault and armed robbery of a 57-year-old man that occurred last Friday night in Seabrook.
Geoni Najee Clark, 16, of Dale was charged Wednesday as an adult with armed robbery and first-degree assault and battery by mob, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office. Two 15-year-old boys and a 14-year-old boy were also arrested and sent to the Department of Juvenile Justice in Columbia. They will face the same charges as Clark, but will be tried as juveniles through Family Court.
All four teens allegedly attacked a man walking home at Seabrook Mobile Home Park. The man said one of the attackers was armed with a handgun. They demanded money, but when the victim told them he did not have any, they punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground. They continued to punch and kick him several times and took his EBT card and cigarette lighters. They then ran toward Detour Road.
