Columbia Police Department (CPD) Investigators arrests a man for kidnapping at an apartment complex shortly after an armed robbery at a local convenience store.

Marcas Griffin is housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC) on a $15,000 personal recognizance bond for Kidnapping.  A second bond hearing for an Armed Robbery charge is set for tomorrow morning.

Shortly after 7:00 a.m. on April 28, 2022, Griffin is accused of using a sharp object, possibly a knife to threaten a clerk at gas station and demanding money while at 4905 Fairfield Road (Shell/Pops Mart). Griffin ran from the scene.

About two hours later, 9-1-1 dispatchers received a call that a man was inside an apartment at 901 Colleton Street holding a female victim against her will and preventing her from calling 9-1-1. Officers who were on routine patrol in the area  responded to the call for service and found Griffin inside the victim’s home. He was arrested on scene.
