Fugitive accused in robbery arrested after Rock Hill domestic dispute

A Rock Hill fugitive wanted by deputies for an alleged robbery was arrested Wednesday after police say he was involved in a domestic violence situation with his girlfriend.

At about 11:30 p.m., police were dispatched to a Carolina Avenue Extension home to perform a welfare check on a 19-year-old woman, whose brother believed she was involved in a “domestic violence situation with her boyfriend,” Demitruis Black, according to a Rock Hill police report. The alleged victim opened the door and told police nothing was going on between her and Black, 24, who was asleep in a back room.

The homeowner allowed police to walk into the back bedroom, where they found Black lying on the floor, the report states. The woman reiterated that nothing was going on between her and Black, stressing that they were just arguing and it never turned physical. The woman did not suffer from any apparent injuries.

Black, police say, refused to answer questions and became upset that police were in the house. Police checked Black’s name in a federal criminal storehouse and found that he was wanted by the York County Sheriff’s Office for a reported strong arm robbery. Police arrested Black, serving a fugitive warrant on him and holding him at the Rock Hill jail until deputies took custody of him. By Thursday morning, he was being held at the York County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
