The York County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two men in connection with an assault in Clover Sunday morning.
Kejuan Dye, 24, and Darron Adams, 24, are accused of entering a Clover house with shotguns and forcing residents outside and to their knees, demanding money and a gun, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
Residents told deputies a third man was with Dye and Adams, the report says.
One man at the house had a head injury, and a boy had a minor abrasion on his arm, deputies said. The injured man was transported to Piedmont Medical Center. The boy said he had been awakened by someone hitting him with a gun, the report says.

An uninjured resident told deputies three armed men came in the house wearing hoods, masks and gloves and demanded a .45-caliber chrome plated pistol. The uninjured resident said at one point, someone fired a shot into the floor and later, another into the air, the report says.
Witnesses said they knew the armed men and heard them planning to get the gun, which had been given to the injured man to hold for a monetary loan.
Since 2011, Dye has been convicted of armed robbery, assault and battery and drug trafficking. As a convicted felon, Dye is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
Dye is charged with four counts of kidnapping, attempted murder, two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime and armed robbery, among other charges. His bond has been set at $75,615.
Adams is charged with kidnapping, attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and armed robbery.
The investigation is still open.
