Police in Lancaster have arrested a second man wanted in connection with a Monday morning armed robbery.

Just before noon on July 8, police say a man met two people at the Walmart on S.C. 9 to buy a car from a man he met on Craigslist.

Instead, the man was robbed of cash, electronics, his wallet and keys. Two suspects fled the scene on foot.

Late Tuesday night, 18-year-old Malcolm Williams of Rock Hill turned himself in to authorities and is now charged with Armed Robbery and Possession of a Handgun during the Commission of a Violent Crime.

Late Thursday afternoon, Lancaster Police spokesman Capt. Scott Grant said 26-year-old Jequavis Clyburn of Lancaster was arrested for Armed Robbery.

Clyburn was taken into custody at a home of Old Blackmon Lane in Lancaster.

Grant said Wednesday the Craigslist ad was an apparent set up.
