Three men were arrested Thursday, charged in a home invasion and armed robbery two days earlier in Prosperity.
One suspect remains at large, according to the Newberrry Sheriff's Office.
The three Prosperity men arrested — Phillip Dominick, 25, 988 Langford St.; Garian Jaleel Greenwood, 17, 101 Stanza Hill Road; and Markevis Daiman Kinard, 20, 430 Lang Wise Road — have been charged with armed robbery, burglary and kidnapping.
A fourth man — Randevious Hi-Keem Sims, 18, of 102 Byrd St., Newberry — is sought by law enforcement. The men, who were acquaintances of the victim, approached the victim at gunpoint in his yard and stole money. They then forced him into the house where they sought more money and items, according to the sheriff's office.
