Brandon Jordan, 20, and Bobby Dinkins, 19, are accused of robbing a current USC student on Southern Drive on the 1000 block around 3 a.m. last Friday. 

According to Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott, Jordan pointed a handgun at the victim, while the Dinkins searched through the victim's pockets. 

Among the items stolen were a black iPhone 5S and a sum of cash. 

The two men were arrested Sunday when a patrol car spotted them on the 7200 block of Two Notch Road. 

Both men are facing numerous charges, including unlawful carrying of a pistol, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and armed robbery. 

Jordan and Dinkins were transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center after they were arrested.
