ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. — Four people have now been named in an incident that left a man beaten and robbed.
The incident happened last month on April 18 when the suspects reportedly beat the victim with a golf club, then stole cash and several firearms from his Lin Drive home.
And it all began as a favor for one of the suspects.
“This victim was under the impression he was helping someone," said Sheriff Leroy Ravenell. "But for his act of kindness, he was being set up for robbery and assault.”
The victim had agreed to give one suspect, 25-year-old Kayla Beason, a ride to Orangeburg. During the drive she made an excuse to go back to his house, where the other two suspects were waiting.
He suffered several injuries during the attack, but declined medical treatment.
Beason, along with 19-year-old Quachelle Ihenetu and 35-year-old Kenneth Gregg were previously arrested for the incident. A fourth suspect, 22-year-old David Johnson, was taken into custody Tuesday by U.S. Marshals in Georgia.
Beason and Ihenetu were charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, grand larceny and criminal conspiracy. Ihenetu was also charged with kidnapping and accessory before the fact of a felony.
Gregg and Johnson were both charged with first-degree burglary, armed robbery with a deadly weapon, grand larceny, kidnapping, criminal conspiracy and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Bond was set at $17,500 for Beason and $22,000 for Ihenetu. Gregg's bond was denied. Johnson's bond has been deferred to a circuit court judge.
