      Teen charged in home invasion

      Police have charged Antwan Jett,18, with Kidnapping, Armed Robbery, Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct, and Possession of a Weapon following a home invasion at a residence on Pawley Street in Northeast Florence Tuesday morning.

      Jett and two other men forced their way into the home and attacked a 52-year-old man inside, according to Major Carlos Raines with Florence Police.

      Raines says a 23-year-old woman in a back room of the home heard what was going on and called 911.

      Jett came into the woman's room and tried to sexually assault her at gun and knife point, but the others came into the room and told him it was time to leave, Raines said.

      The men were running from the home as police were pulling up.

      Officers found Jett hiding under a car and arrested him. The two others got away.

      If you have any information on this home invasion, you're asked to call Florence police at (843) 665-3191.
