SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies said one suspect has been arrested and another is sought in an armed robbery that occurred on Wednesday.

Lt. Kevin Bobo said the robbery occurred around 3:30 p.m. on the 3000 block of Longbow Drive in the Cedar Springs area of the county.

According to the incident report, on July 30, the victim picked up a friend, who was later identified as 17-year-old Aaron McMahan, from the Li'l Cricket on Southport Road. The friend told him to drop him off on Longbow Drive, the report said.

When they arrived and got out of the car, a man came up behind him and put him in a chokehold while another man pointed a .22 semi automatic pistol at him, the report said.

The report stated the man with the gun told the victim he would shoot him if he moved.

The victim was then robbed of his cell phone, laptop, wallet, watch, bank card and cash, the report said.

The victim was able to show deputies McMahan's picture and name on Facebook, the report said.

Bobo said McMahan was taken into custody and charged with accessory before the fact of a felony. 

He said the investigation has also revealed a second suspect in the case, who is still at large.

Bradley Jefferson, 25, is charged with armed robbery in the incident and is also still wanted on a general sessions bench warrant for failure to appear on a criminal domestic violence charge, according to Bobo.

Bobo said the investigation continues as they attempt to identify a third suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC or text TIPSC along with the information to 274637 (CRIMES).
