SC man charged with robberies during football game

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Richland County deputies have arrested a man they say carried out an armed robbery just as the South Carolina-Clemson rivalry game was ending.

Deputies arrested 51-year-old Harwood Williams late Saturday night and charged him with four counts of armed robbery. He was taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

It couldn’t be immediately determined Sunday if he has a lawyer.

Deputies say Williams pulled a gun on four people leaving the game and demanded their money and wallets.

Investigators say he fled the scene, but deputies found him on some nearby railroad tracks shortly after the report of a robbery was made to police.
