Police: Rock Hill woman kidnapped, robbed at taser- and gunpoint

A Rock Hill woman was kidnapped early Tuesday morning from her home and robbed by two men wielding a handgun and a taser, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The 33-year-old woman told police she had just arrived home after work at about 1 a.m. when two men approached her on a sidewalk at the Heather Heights apartment complex off Celanese Road. One of the men had a handgun, and the other was holding a taser, the report states.

The robbers took $18 in cash from the woman’s wallet and forced her to drive them in her own SUV to the Wells Fargo bank branch in the 2600 block of Celanese Road, where she withdrew $260 from an automated teller machine.

The men then ordered the woman to drive back to her apartment complex, the report states, where they took her cellphone and told her to wait in the SUV for five minutes while they fled. The victim told police she immediately called 911 to report the robbery.

The woman identified both robbers as black men between the ages of 18 and 26; about 5-feet, 8 inches tall; weighing about 130 lbs. They were wearing jeans and black sweaters, possibly hooded sweatshirts, and they had black T-shirts wrapped around their faces, according to the report.
