A Rock Hill couple say they were robbed at gunpoint while returning home early Monday morning.

The two had driven to their Pickens Street home about 2 a.m. after a party at one of the clubs the man helped promote, according to a Rock Hill police report. The man walked around the house to get the trash cans while his fiancee was preparing to walk to the front door.

Before she could go inside, two men came around the side of the house and pointed guns at her, the report states. She told them she didn’t have any money, but her purse was in the car and they could take it.

One of the men told her, “You know what we came for, we want the money,” the report states.

The man then walked back around the house and asked what was going on, according to the report. One of the men pointed a gun at him, and both led him inside the house, demanding money. They told the woman not to move.

The woman’s purse along with two debit cards and $8 in cash were taken from the couple, the report states. The suspects ran away, and the woman pressed the panic button on the home’s alarm system.

A K-9 unit couldn’t track the suspects, but officers did find $3 that had been dropped, the report states.
