The report said just before 8:30 p.m. on January 26, 2013 deputies responded to an armed robbery at Bojangles located on Broad River Road. Deputies say Davenport entered the business pretending to order food and then pointed a handgun at an employee and demanded money.
Davenport then jumped over the counter and stole the money from the register then fled the business on foot.
The report said on February 11, Davenport was arrested by the Oakland Police Department during a domestic violence incident involving a gun in Oakland California.
Officers obtained permission to search the residence where Davenport was staying and recovered a Ruger .380 semi automatic handgun, the report stated.
After a records check, Oakland Police determined that Davenport was wanted in South Carolina and the weapon used during the domestic violence incident in Oakland was reported stolen out of Lexington County.
Investigators also determined the gun was the same weapon used during the armed robbery in Richland County.
Sheriff Leon Lott stated that Davenport was identified in connection to the Bojangles robbery through information received by witnesses and acquaintances.
Davenport was extradited back to South Carolina on Friday, March 22 and booked in to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
Davenport will be charged with armed robbery as well as additional charges from Lexington County Sheriff’s Department, and the Oakland California Police Department.
