A Rock Hill woman was charged this week in connection to a mid-August armed robbery during which a man was woken by two men pointing a gun at him, according to Rock Hill Police.
Deneise Younger, 34, was charged with armed robbery, criminal conspiracy and breach of trust with fraudulent intent. She remained in the York County detention center Monday under $42,000 bond.
The robbery happened about 3:45 a.m. Aug. 20 at a home on the 1100 block of Haile Street. The victim said he was sleeping in bed when two men entered his room and pointed a gun in his face, according to a police report. The suspects took his car keys and ID card.
One of the suspects was on the phone with whom the victim believed was Younger “because he could hear her voice,” police said. The report indicated Younger lived at the home, but Capt. Mark Bollinger said Monday that she no longer resides there.

There were no signs of forced entry, and the report did not indicate any injuries to the victim.
Officers later reached Younger by phone and told her she had warrants in her name and would have to turn herself in.
Bollinger said the case is still open while investigators try to identify the other individuals involved.
