Greenville police officers are searching for a teen identified as the suspect in the Tuesday armed robbery of a man during what was supposed to be a meeting to complete a transaction for a cellphone that began on a mobile marketplace app, “Offer Up.”

Officers responded about 10:52 a.m. on Tuesday to 2236 Bellamy Circle after a report of an armed robbery.

The victim reported he was there to purchase a cellphone from someone who posted an ad on “Offer Up.” The suspect, who posed as the online seller, robbed the victim at gunpoint of cash, his cellphone and car keys, according to a news release issued by the department. No injuries were reported.

The suspect was last seen running toward Kittrell Towers and was wearing a gray, hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants.

Since that time, officers tracked his movement through nearby security camera footage, according to a news release issued Thursday. The suspect was tracked to an apartment, and police said he was identified as 17-year-old Eric Timetrius Hopkins Jr.

Police said Thursday morning that Hopkins had not been located. Detectives have obtained warrants for Hopkins, charging him with robbery with a dangerous weapon and obtaining property by false pretense.

Hopkins should be considered armed and dangerous, the release said. If located, please contact Detective J. Peterson at the Greenville Police Department at 252-329-4315 or CrimeStoppers at 252-758-7777. CrimeStoppers offers up to a $2,500 reward for information that leads to an arrest.

The Greenville Police Department urges the public to use the “Internet Exchange Zones” outside each of the three department substations: West Zone, 1024 W. Fifth St.; East Zone, 3195 E. 10th St., Suite A; and South Zone, 728 S.W. Greenville Blvd.

The department cannot guarantee an officer can be present for every exchange but said that each of the areas are under 24-hour video surveillance. Exchanges also may be made in the lobby of any of the substations between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
