A Beaufort man has been charged and three others are sought in connection with a home invasion Tuesday, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office news release.
Cornelius Watson Jr., 24, was arrested Wednesday after he turned himself in to deputies on charges of armed robbery, burglary, possession of a firearm during a violent crime, pointing a firearm at a person, and assault and battery.
Deputies responded to a home invasion on Peacock Run in Beaufort at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, the release said.
The 31-year-old victim was awakened by four men who held him at gunpoint and stole his TV, the release said.
