A Rock Hill man told police two robbers knocked him unconscious with a gun, bound his arms and legs with duct tape and stole his valuables before he managed to “wiggle free” and run away, authorities say.
The victim, 54, reported that at about 7 p.m., he walked into his Mallard Pointe apartment when he was assaulted from behind, according to a Rock Hill police report. Two men, about 20 to 25, hit him with a revolver, he told officers, knocking him unconscious.
When he awoke, he found the two suspects binding his legs and arms with duct tape, the report states. The man told police he managed to wiggle free and run out the front door and realized the suspects had stolen his keys, wallet, cell phone and car. The victim was taken to Piedmont Medical Center for treatment.
Police found his missing Cadillac at the intersection of Saluda and Summit streets, the report states. It was empty. A neighbor told police he saw two men walking in the apartment breezeway more than an hour before the victim was attacked. Police are still investigating.
