Two Rock Hill women, ages 44 and 49, had a verbal exchange that escalated to threats this week at a summer feeding program for kids in Confederate Park, according to an incident report.

One of the women told police on Wednesday that she was working at the park with children when a volunteer “became aggravated with everyone and began to yell and curse,” according to a Rock Hill police report.

She confronted the woman, who continued to yell, the report states.

The woman accused of yelling and cursing then got in her car, according to the report, and drove off, coming “very close” to hitting the woman who reported the incident.

Police are investigating the report but there are no arrest warrants pending, said Executive Officer Mark Bollinger, Rock Hill police spokesman.

Officers advised the woman on how to obtain a courtesy summons and warrant to press charges.

On Thursday, the woman reported to police that the volunteer yelled at her again and called her derogatory names, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The woman also threatened to shoot her, the report states. Police looked for the woman accused of making threats but could not find her.

David Moore, the director of the children’s summer feeding program, declined to comment on Friday afternoon because of the ongoing police investigation.
