— A Rock Hill woman told police she was attacked by four men on Thursday night, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The woman, 17, said she was walking in the 700 block of Manchester Street in Rock Hill when the men between the ages of 17 and 19 attacked her, according to the report.

The men “punched her and hit her with sticks,” the report stated, causing her to fall and hit her head on the ground. She then got up and ran away.

Police responded and the woman, who said her arm and abdomen were sore and had cuts on her forehead and cheek, was taken to the hospital.

The suspects ran towards Eastwood Drive, and were wearing hoodies, the woman said. Three of the hoodies were black and one was burgundy. One black hoodie had “Adidas” written on the front and another had white stripes on the sleeve.

Police have not identified any suspects.
