ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - A man with charges for armed robbery and multiple other offenses was arrested on Tuesday afternoon after initially barricading himself within a residence in Rock Hill.

Godseen Vernard Williams, 22, refused to exit a home on Marion Street while facing charges for assault on a police officer while resisting arrest, resisting arrest with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a convicted violent felon, possession of a stolen pistol, carrying a pistol unlawfully and multiple other offenses related to armed robbery and assault.
