— Two Rock Hill men told police two men searching for “the white bags” held them at gunpoint and robbed them of their car keys, cash and one man’s pit bull on Wednesday.

Police were called to a house on Montclair Drive, off Mount Gallant Road, after receiving complaints of an armed robbery at about 3 p.m., according to a Rock Hill police report. Police spoke with two men, one 18 and the other 19, who said they were robbed at gunpoint while at Oakwood Acres Park.

The 19-year-old man reported that his pit bull puppy, a cell phone, $40 cash and car keys were stolen, the report states. The pit bull was valued at $900. The other man told police his iPhone 4S was stolen.

The victims said the suspects both pointed revolvers, one gold and the other silver, at them and kept asking where the “white bags” were, the report states. Another man, police said, searched the victims’ car for the “white bags.”

Police are still investigating.
