Two South Carolina teens have been arrested after robbing and killing a man who was reportedly trying to help them pull their car out of a ditch.
Deon Frasier, 17, and Michael Dupree-Tyler, 19, were arrested after police say they robbed and killed Chadwick Garrett, 45, on Aug. 15.
According to the New York Daily News, the teens were found in a North Charleston apartment less than six miles from the intersection where they killed Garrett.
A statement from North Charleston Police Department spokesman Spencer Pryor reveals that Garrett was trying to help the two men when he was killed.
“During the investigation, it was learned that the victim was assisting two black males in pulling a Dodge Durango out of the ditch,” Pryor said in the statement. “After the victim got the vehicle out of the ditch, the two suspects then robbed and shot the victim.”
Garrett was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a spokesperson from the Charleston County Coroner’s office.
The suspects are expected to appear in court on Aug. 16. They have both been charged with murder, according to WCSC.
