HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Two people were arrested by Horry County police in connection to the alleged armed robbery of a woman on Monday.

Damion King, 23, of Green Sea, was charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, third-degree assault and battery, unlawful communication and violation of probation, according to information from the Horry County Sheriff’s Office’s website.

Additionally, Stephanie Sanders, 24, of Conway, was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony.

Both remained in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Wednesday under no bond.

According to the incident report, the victim told police she was at an unknown location when the suspects told her they would give her a ride to North Myrtle Beach to get a tire for her moped, which had a flat.

The suspects reportedly stopped at a gas station in the Green Sea area, where the victim filled their car with gas and bought a box of cigarettes.

On their way to Green Sea Road, the suspects stopped the car and King allegedly put a gun to the victim’s head and asked for money, according to the report.

The suspect reportedly then took $1,200 from the reported victim.

When talking with police, King reportedly told them he took $300 from the victim and hid the money behind his uncle's home in the woods in a coffee cup, the report stated.

Officers did not find any money in the area where the suspect said it was. The suspect allegedly said the money was in his cousin's bedroom.

The $300 was reportedly retrieved and placed into evidence, the incident report stated.
