Officers with the Rock Hill Police Department made entry into an Ellis Street home around 9:30 p.m. Friday and took a woman into custody without any injury to her or officers, police said.
Capt. Brent Allmon of the Rock Hill Police Department confirmed the removal of the woman without incident.
At the same time the SWAT team from the Rock Hill Police Department was handling a hostage situation in southern Rock Hill, police and York County deputies had responded to another situation where a woman barricaded herself in a home on Ellis Street in the middle of the city.
The SWAT team and crisis negotiators from the York County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 1700 block of Ellis street near Oakwood Acres Park for a call of a woman whom family members said was having suicidal thoughts, Allmon said earlier Friday.
Never miss a local story.
The neighborhood, near the intersection of Cherry and Mount Gallant roads, was filled with medical teams from Piedmont Medical Center and police waiting to assist.
Unlike the situation with two women being held against their will by a man in southern Rock Hill, the Ellis Street incident involved only one person who was alone in the house, Allmon said.
York County Sheriff's deputies turned the scene over to Rock Hill officers after 7 p.m. Friday after Rock Hill detectives and SWAT officers cleared the scene at the other SWAT event, Sheriff Kevin Tolson said.
In that first incident on King Drive in the College Downs neighborhood, a man, 60, held two women for several hours before the women were released. The man surrendered around 3: 20 p.m.
His identity has not yet been released and charges are pending.
