Richland County sheriff deputies have arrested Joshua Fitzgerald Clark, 20, in the robbery and beating of a 92-year-old man in the Woodfield Park community on Sunday.
Deputies responding to a tip found Clark on Hialeah Drive in the Bluff Estates community, according to a sheriff's department press release. The release did not say what Clark is charged with. It did say more people might be arrested.
Sheriff Leon Lott said earlier this week that three men approached the elderly man, who was standing at his carport Sunday afternoon, and asked if he needed lawn work done. The man declined, saying he already had someone to do the work. One of robbers grabbed the man and snatched his wallet, then all three men fled.
Investigators believe a woman who talked to the elderly man earlier in the day was in cahoots with the three men, Lott said.
