Two men have been arrested and one is at large after an armed robbery in Spartanburg, where deputies said the victim's boyfriend was in on it.

According to an incident report provided by the sheriff's office, on Wednesday, two men went into an apartment on Abner Road in Spartanburg County while the victim was cleaning the bathroom, telling the resident to give them everything they had.

The victim's boyfriend was made to got into the living room, while one man held the people in the house at gunpoint and the other went through the victim's belongings, the report said.

When the victim's mother came home the suspects fled the home after she asked what the two men were doing, according to the report.

After deputies said they found inconsistencies in the boyfriend's story, they questioned him about why phone calls had been erased from the victim's phone, which he used before the robbery, the report said.

The boyfriend, 17-year-old Deron Young, then told deputies he knew the men, who he said were looking to do a "lick" and would give him compensation if he helped.

Young told deputies he checked to see if the door was unlocked before the incident and informed the other men, according to the report.

Young and Trenton Demario Murphy, 23, have been charged with first-degree burglary, according to online jail records for the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office said a third suspect is at large and his name is unknown at this time.
