— Warrants have been issued for a 21-year-old man police say joined with several others to pistol-whip another man at a Rock Hill apartment complex on Saturday.

Police met with a 38-year-old woman and her 21-year-old son, who said he was assaulted at the Glens apartment complex on Glenarden Drive around 1 p.m. after an argument with his girlfriend, a Rock Hill Police report states.

The man said when he went to the Glens, the woman’s cousin pulled up in a car and got out with a black revolver in hand, the report states. Joining him were three or four others, all of whom had guns, the man said.

The group approached the man, he said. The woman’s cousin, also 21, hit him in the head with the gun while the others held him at gunpoint, the report states. The victim said he managed to grab the gun, but received cuts on three fingers.

The gunmen soon fled, the report states. After making his report to police, the man was taken to Piedmont Medical Center.

Police have issued warrants on the 21-year-old accused gunman, charging him with second-degree assault and battery, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a violent crime and pointing and presenting a firearm.
