— Vandals wearing hoods and gloves broke out the windows of two Rock Hill businesses, using sledgehammers to crack a safe in one business and ransacking the other on Monday, police say.

At about 6:30 a.m., police were called to the Subway on East Main Street after an employee told them she arrived at the business only to find the front window broken, according to a Rock Hill police report. The area around the cash register had been ransacked and the company safe damaged.

The business next door, Cash Well Consumer Loans, had also been burglarized, police reported. The front door window was also shattered and the business ransacked.

Video footage of the 4:50 a.m. burglary showed two hooded, gloved men break Subway’s window and beat on the safe with a sledgehammer, police reports say. Employees reported that nothing was missing from the business.

An employee at Cash Well Consumer Loans told police they do not keep cash at the business, the report states.

Police are still investigating.
