A Rock Hill teenager told police that two men barged into his apartment at gunpoint, rifled through the rooms and then stole his pistol, laptop and other property that totaled more than $2,000, authorities said.

Police were sent to Patriot’s Crossing apartments on Patriot’s Parkway after a teen, 16, claimed that he had been robbed at gunpoint at his apartment, according to a Rock Hill police report. Police interviewed the boy, who told them two men, one wearing a burgundy jacket with matching shoes and another wearing all brown, rushed into his apartment once he answered the door.

They held him at gunpoint as he sat on the couch while they took turns rummaging through the rooms, the report states. In total, they took loose cash, some marijuana, a .22 caliber pistol, a Dell laptop, an Acer Chromebook, a charm bracelet, a microphone, a hard drive and a rust-colored suitcase. Police spoke with a 20-year-old woman who lives at the apartment, and dispatched a K9 unit to track suspects.

No arrests had been made by early Thursday.
