ROCK HILL — Police say two men, one wearing a fur-lined parka and pajama pants, tossed a brick through the front door of a Rock Hill dollar store early Wednesday before leaving without taking anything.
Around 2:50 a.m., officers responded to the alarm sounding off at the Family Dollar on Saluda Street, according to a Rock Hill Police report. When they arrived, they found the front glass door broken and the store unoccupied.
A store employee arrived and checked the surveillance video, which shows two men breaking the front door by throwing a brick through it, the report states.
One man wore a tan jacket, black pants, gloves and a bandana that covered his face, the report describes. He went inside the store, jumped on the counter and grabbed the cigarette cabinet before realizing it was locked.
He then jumped the counter again and fled the store, passing the other suspect, who police say wore a dark-colored, fur-lined parka and plaid pajama pants, the report states. He also wore a glove on his right hand but never entered the store, instead standing by the door.
Both men left without taking any merchandise, the report states. Police took photos of the scene and lifted shoeprint impressions from the counter. It’s unclear if both suspects fled in a vehicle or on foot.
A copy of the police video was not immediately available.
