ROCK HILL — Police have made two arrests in an armed robbery from last week in which two men say they were robbed at gunpoint while at a Rock Hill gas station.
Keion Henreik King, and Kendricko Dayshaun Young, both 17, were arrested in connection with the robbery. Deputies took King into custody last Thursday, but arrested Young on Monday. King was released Friday on a $15,000 bond.
Around 9:40 a.m., police were called to the Hardee's on Dave Lyle Boulevard in reference to an armed robbery that had just occurred. They met with two men, both 20, who said they were getting gas at the Lesslie Mart on Lesslie Highway when one of the men's ex-girlfriend pulled up in a car with three other men inside, according to a York County Sheriff's report.
Two of the men got out the car and approached the victims while they were getting fuel. One of the teens pushed a handgun into one of the victim's necks and demanded that he and his friend empty their pockets, the report states.
When the men said they didn't have anything, the gunmen got back into the car and left the scene.
According to a York County Sheriff’s incident report, police met with a 20-year-old woman who said she had information about the incident. She showed police where she picked up two suspects and also showed officials where another suspect lives.
Police spoke with one of the teen’s mothers, who told police where they could find King. Deputies drove to King’s address and spoke with his family members before King walked to the front door. Officials searched King, who refused to provide any information about the incident or identify the other suspects.
Police have obtained warrants for one other teen connected with the robbery.
