— A Rock Hill woman crawled out of her bedroom window and ran for help Monday night after police say two masked, armed men broke into her home, pistol-whipped her father and got away with cash and a cellphone.

Police went to a Cornelius Drive home off Crawford Road at about 9:20 p.m. where a man, 41, told them two men, one wearing camouflage and the other dressed in black, came into his house through the front door armed with handguns, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The men yelled, “Give it up,” as they pointed guns at the victim and demanded money, according to an arrest warrant.

The intruders asked for money, the report states, and pointed guns at the man before one of the robbers him in the right eye with a pistol.

The men took his cell phone and $300, the report states. The victim said he knew the suspects by their voices and identified them for police.

The robbers left through the front door and ran through the backyard of a nearby house, the report states.

The victim’s daughter, 18, told police that she was in her bedroom when the men broke in.

She crawled out of her bedroom window, she told police, and ran to get help. She found her mother at her grandmother’s house. The two women ran back to the house and could see the robbers holding the victim at gunpoint.

The daughter also identified the intruders for police.

Police arrested Rameisha Reid, 22, at his Robinson Street home and charged him with armed robbery, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, first-degree burglary and criminal conspiracy. Tuesday morning, he was still in jail awaiting a bond hearing.

Police are still looking for the second suspect, identified as Dennis "Big Mac" Davis. Warrants have been issued for his arrest.

Anyone with any information on Dennis Davis' whereabouts can call York County Crimestoppers at (877) 409-4321.
