Armed Mother Defends Home From Invaders

From The Rock Hill Herald by Jonathan McFadden, July 31, 2012

ROCK HILL — Police say a gun-wielding Rock Hill mother faced off with three gunmen who broke into her home Monday night apparently looking for her son.

The 46-year-old woman told police she was at her Midvale Avenue home when she heard a knock at the door. The person on the other side didn’t answer after she asked who it was several times, according to a Rock Hill police report.

The woman said the knocking continued and, as she went in her kitchen, her back door flew open and a man armed with a gun walked into her house, the report states. Another man with a gun entered through her unlocked front door while a third man with a gun stood in her yard.

The men showed the woman a badge, claiming to work for a North Carolina bail bonds company that’s looking for her son. The mother told police the men kept saying, “he’s here, we know he’s here.”

The mother told police she then pulled a gun on the men and ordered them to leave. The intruders told her to put the gun down, but they then left her house in a Red Dodge truck with a North Carolina tag.

The mother told police that she wasn’t sure if her son was home but she did find an iPod on her kitchen counter that displayed his Facebook page. A bowl of cereal sat next to it.

Police were unable to find the woman’s son or the intruders. Neighbors told police that the men were “unprofessional,” the report states, and pointed guns “all over the place.”
