ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

One of the men Anderson police said they were looking for during a press conference on Monday has been arrested.

Police said Naquarius Watt, 20, was arrested in connection with an April armed robbery of Thomas Food Mart.

On April 17, police said a man whose face was covered with a bandana entered the store on Tribble Street, brandishing a gun and demanded money.

According to police, that man was Watt and he fired two to three shots inside the store before fleeing with nearly $700. According to the original report, as Watt entered the store, he pushed past one employee saying, "Get the hell out of my way."

Police and deputies tried looking for him after the robbery but did not locate him.

Watt was arrested Wednesday and charged with armed robbery and attempted murder.
