Two of the alleged robbers were captured when the men dumped their car and tried to run.

Before noon, officers were searching off Capital and Yonkers in the Crabtree Creek area for one remaining suspect. He was taken into custody around 1 p.m.

Police say the suspects are from South Carolina.

Curtis McCutchen, 47, of Manning, SC is charged with attempted murder, four counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and more than one dozen additional traffic-related charges.

One of the three vehicles rammed by McCutchen was occupied by two people. He has four assault charges from that crash. Only drivers were in the other two vehicles, so he has two assault counts from those crashes.

David Jenkins, 42, of Latta, SC is charged multiple offenses, including attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a felon.

The last suspect who was arrested is 26-year-old Bryan Singletary of Lake City, SC. He is charged with two offenses, including robbery with a dangerous weapon.
