Police: Two Rock Hill teenagers were arrested early Tuesday morning after confessing to throwing rocks at moving cars

Two Rock Hill teenagers were arrested early Tuesday morning after confessing to throwing rocks at moving cars, according to a Rock Hill police report.

A Rock Hill man went to the law center to report that he believed someone shot a bullet at his car. The object went through his open driver’s window and exited through the passenger window, the report stated. The incident happened a little after midnight near the 100 block of Dave Lyle Boulevard. Officers saw a “baseball-sized hole” in the man’s window.

Another victim, a Chester woman, reported that around the same time in the same area, her car’s front windshield was hit and damaged. A large rock was found inside her car.

Officers went to the area and found two teenagers, both 16. They confessed to throwing rocks at cars and said they hit “one or two vehicles.” Both were issued juvenile complaint forms and released to their parents.

A separate report stated that around 11:30 p.m. on Monday, a woman reported that someone threw something at the passenger side of the car, breaking the window and the front windshield. The incident at the intersection of East White Street and North Jones Avenue, about a mile from where the other incidents occurred.

The incidents are considered related, said Rock Hill police spokesman Mark Bollinger.
