— A Rock Hill woman said intruders tied her with duct tape during a home invasion early Thursday morning, according to police reports.

The woman, 60, approached the front porch of her home Doc's Dead End around 1 a.m. when two men, who had been waiting outside, rushed towards her and forced her into the home, where they bound her hands behind her, according to the report from the York County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman reported that the two men repeatedly demanded to know where her son’s money was, and assured her that they would not harm her as long as she cooperated.

She told them she did not know where the money was.

The men made a mess of the house, especially the son’s room, but took only $50 from the woman’s wallet. She says they saw her job ID and threatened to come to her work place if she called the police.

She said the men were both wearing dark clothing and masks that covered the upper parts of their faces.

Police on the scene reported that there was marijuana strewn about the house.

Upon questioning the woman, they learned that she suspected her son was “into some shady dealings,” but that she “didn’t get into his business,” the report states.

Forensics processed the scene. No arrests have been made.
