Original Story

The Clemson City Police Department has arrested three men in connection to an armed robbery on Wednesday.

Authorities say they received a call around 4 p.m. from a victim saying they’d been robbed at gunpoint on Sloan Street.

The three men are accused of forcing their way inside the victim’s home after they knocked on the door and the victim answered.

Once inside, the men allegedly took an undisclosed amount of cash and the victim’s cell phone. Police say the suspects then took off in the direction of the downtown parking deck. Investigators were able to determine what type of vehicle was used and identified the three men.

Charlie Bernard Fuller, Quaven Maurice Ferguson and Jadar Kentrell Johnson were charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during commission of a crime.

Fuller is a former running back for Clemson. The university announced he was transferring earlier this year.

Ferguson is a former defensive tackle for the Duke University football team, according to the Duke Athletics website.
Johnson is a former Clemson safety.

Police say all three men were arrested without incident. They are currently being held at the Clemson City Jail awaiting a bond hearing.

This is not a court of law. All are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
