GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Deputies have arrested a man accused of robbing a Greenville County woman at gunpoint and using the bank card of another woman who was later found dead.
31-year-old Trevious Bernard Jackson is facing numerous charges, including burglary, armed robbery and kidnapping.
The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said Jackson approached a woman who was walking her dog outside her apartment on Walden Creek Way on July 22.
“He pulled out a gun, held her at gunpoint and forced her of inside her own apartment,” Lt. Ryan Flood of the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said.
Once inside the apartment, warrants state Jackson sexually assaulted the woman, forced her in the bathroom and then moved a dresser in front of the door so she could not escape.
Investigators said he also stole her debit card and pin number and drove to a nearby bank where he withdrew money from her account.
“We began investigating and looking into trying to identify who this person was,” Flood said. “We were able to obtain some video surveillance from that bank.”
During their investigation, the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said they received a report about a woman dead inside an apartment on Knights Spur Court near Simpsonville on September 12.
“Several days after her death, we learned that her debit card had been used fraudulently,” Flood explained. “We learned that there were 12 attempts made on that card, and two of them were successful. When one of our investigators pulled the surveillance from the banks where the suspect unlawfully took the money, we learned that it was the same guy.”
Warrants state the woman was last seen alive on September 9, and Jackson entered her home the night of September 10, stealing her purse with her debit card inside.
Investigators said they are still trying to determine how Jackson came in contact with the victim and how she died.
Jackson was arrested on September 15 during a traffic stop in Spartanburg County.
He is being held in the Greenville County Detention Center.
