AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- A suspect is in custody in connection to the armed robbery of Kent's Korner on Wagener Road in Aiken.

While the police were at the scene, Knight returned to the store. The clerk pointed him out, and Knight was arrested at the scene.

Knight was taken to the Aiken County Detention Center and is expected to be charged with armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
