A distressed caller can be heard on the line with the dispatcher, reporting the armed robbery at her boyfriend’s apartment.

“I’m pretty sure they’re on the football team,” she said, telling the dispatcher that she thinks the robbers know her boyfriend, who she said is also a football player, but wasn’t home at the time.

The victim said two men in hoods entered the apartment, holding a gun in her face, while she believed a third person served as the lookout. She said they stole her phone and cash from the apartment.

Police were called to the reported armed robbery at an apartment on Sloan Street in Clemson around 4 p.m. March 28. 

They held the victim at gunpoint, took a cellphone, and an undisclosed amount of cash from a kitchen cabinet and a nightstand in the back bedroom, according to police and arrest warrants.

The victims were a 21-year-old male who lived at the apartment and a 20-year-old female who lived at a separate address, according to an incident report.

Police identified Johnson, Fuller and Ferguson through surveillance video from the City of Clemson Parking Deck, according to warrants. The men were seen returning to a white, four-door Mercedes-Benz that is registered to a family member of one of the men, according to warrants. 

A Clemson municipal court judge on March 29 set each of their bond amounts at $25,000. They were released on bond by the end of the day, Clemson city officials said. The defendants, as part of conditions of their bond, are under electronic monitoring and prohibited from leaving South Carolina or contacting the victims.

The three men are due back in court at 8:30 a.m. May 17 in Pickens County.

Fuller and Ferguson graduated from Easley High School, and Ferguson played football at Duke University.

Johnson, originally from Orangeburg, started 17 games at safety for the Tigers and went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. He signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent but announced his retirement from football before the season began.

In February, head football coach Dabo Swinney announced Fuller’s plan to transfer out of the program for the 2018 season. He rushed for a combined 599 yards and four touchdowns in his three years at Clemson.
