— A Rock Hill woman told police that a man she drove to a Bank of America ATM early Friday held a knife to her neck and forced her to use her bank card and PIN number to withdraw money.

At about 4 a.m., police received a call about an armed robbery at the Bank of America on Cherry Road, according to a Rock Hill police report. The victim, 42, told officers she drove a man, 32, to the ATM when he tried to use his debit card to withdraw money.

His account, she told police, showed a negative balance of more than $1,000, the report states. The man then brandished a knife, grabbed the woman around her neck and demanded that she relinquish her ATM car and PIN number.

She told police the man threatened to cut her, the report states. The woman told police she was able to pull away from the suspect and run to her home on Farm Pond Lane. The man, she told authorities, drove her car northbound on Cherry Road.

Police found the woman’s car at the Executive Inn on Anderson Road, the report states. Police learned the man had not checked in at the hotel front desk, but they did find the knife and bank card in the car.

Police are still investigating.
