A woman was robbed at gunpoint Monday morning while she was on her way to make a deposit at Wells Fargo, according to a Rock Hill police report. Two suspects have been charged in the incident.

One suspect later called police to report another robbery, police spokesman Capt. Mark Bollinger said.

Ishamel Rashaad Muhammad, 21, and Tearence Devonte McDougald, 23, are charged in the Monday morning robbery.

McDougald called 911 himself later Monday to report two guns had been stolen from his car, Bollinger said.

Bollinger said one of the guns had been dropped at the scene. Detectives determined McDougald had used the gun during the robbery and then reported it missing, he said.

McDougald has been charged with filing a false police report, along with the robbery charges.

The woman told police she was on her way to Wells Fargo on Celanese Road in Rock Hill just after 10 a.m. Monday to make a bank deposit for a local restaurant when two men robbed her at gunpoint. She told police the men took the deposit bag.

The woman said as she got out of her car, a pickup pulled in behind her and one of the men got out of the car with a gun, the report says.

She told police he pointed the gun at her and said: “Give it all to me,” the report says.

“Patrol officers and detectives flooded the area, utilized the K-9 and apprehended both suspects a few hours later,” Bollinger said.

Muhammad is charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon, criminal conspiracy and fugitive from justice for warrants from Mecklenburg County, N.C. Muhammad’s bond is set at $70,000.

McDougald is charged with armed robbery with a deadly weapon and possession of a weapon during a crime of violence. His bond is set at $80,000.
