— Five teenagers are accused of burglarizing a Rock Hill home Friday night and holding its residents at gunpoint, according to Rock Hill police.

No one was injured during the incident.

Officers were called to the Cedar Grove Lane home after the burglars fled the scene around 9:44 p.m., said Lt. Brad Redfearn, police spokesman.

The burglarized home is near Oakwood Acres Park, close to the intersection of Cherry and Mt. Gallant Roads.

The residents told police that five people entered their home, demanded money and items and then ran away after searching their home, Redfearn said.

Rock Hill’s K-9 unit tracked the intruders and arrested the five suspects in the home invasion.

Deonta Sabashtion Maleek Hill and Kurtis Montez Hill, both 18, of Rock Hill and Quantay Demar Henson, 18, of York have been charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, sale or possession of a stolen pistol, first-degree burglary, criminal conspiracy and three counts of kidnapping, according to the York County Sheriff’s website. They are being held at the Moss Justice Detention Center on $70,000 bonds each.

Two juveniles were also arrested in connection with the burglary but their names will not be released because of their age.
