A Rock Hill woman was arrested after a York man reported that he had been tackled, tied up and robbed in a Gordon Road home.
Donna Cearfoss, 61, was charged Tuesday with kidnapping, armed robbery and possession of a weapon during a violent crime by York County sheriff’s deputies. She was being held in the York County Detention Center.
The victim said he tried to collect his belongings on Monday from the Gordon Road home near Rock Hill, where he had been staying. He told officers a man answered the door and pulled him inside, where a woman later identified as Cearfoss pointed a gun at him, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
The victim said he was tackled, tied up to a kitchen chair with zip-ties and forced to empty his pockets, the report says. He said the man hit him in the face several times and people in the home were “questioning him about putting explosives underneath the house,” the report says.
Deputies said the victim had been staying at the house for several days. The victim told deputies he knew the people “were probably delusional from using narcotics, and that is why they were questioning him about such topics,” the report says.
Deputies responded about 4 p.m. Monday after they received a report of an injured man at a York Highway business, about a mile from the Gordon Road house. The victim had “obvious injury to his person, and had blood all over his clothes and face area,” the report says.
A search warrant was issued for the Gordon Road property and a SWAT team was called to assist in serving the warrant.
The investigation is still open.
