Belcher returns to face charges

Fredrick Belcher, Jr., one of five men accused of beating and robbing a man at gunpoint in April, returned to Greenwood Wednesday to face his charges.

According to officials with the Greenwood Police Department, Belcher had been incarcerated at eh South Carolina Department of Corrections on a charge of assault and battery. Belcher was set to be released Wednesday, but a judge denied his bond on his charges in Greenwood, officials said.

Investigators believe Belcher, 22, along with 22-year-old Alvin Roundtree, 22-year-old Richard Scott, 23-year-old Datarious Holloway and 26-year-old Avian Sheppard, beat and robbed a man on April 18 at a home on Meadow Street.

According to reports from GPD, the victim told police that he was at a home on Meadow Street when he was abruptly struck in the left side of the face by Scott. The victim told police that he fell through a porch railing and onto the ground before as many as 10 people began punching and kicking him. The victim told police that he was able to get back to his feet at which time Roundtree struck him with the barrel of an “AK-47 style rifle.”

According to reports, the victim told police that Scott then produced a .38 snub nose pistol and pointed it at him. The victim told police that he then began running and heard a single gunshot fired. The victim told police that he was unsure whether or not the bullet went past him.

All five men have been charged with first degree assault and battery and armed robbery. Investigators say that the men have been charged with armed robbery due to the fact that all of them allegedly participated in the beating and one of them pointed a firearm at the victim. Investigators also say that someone reached in the victim’s pocket and removed money at some point during the altercation.
