York County authorities are investigating an armed robbery of a Fort Mill woman who was confronted by man this week when she returned to her mobile home down behind Twin Lakes Estates near Regent Parkway.
The 46-year-old woman told deputies she had just returned home to Westerleigh Road at 5 a.m. Tuesday when she saw a man standing to the right of her mobile home.
“She was messing with her vehicle keys when the male came up to her, showed her a pistol in his waistband and pushed her into the residence,” a sheriff’s report says. “The male grabbed her throat and pushed her to the ground and began to touch her.”
The victim screamed, which scared the man enough that he left. But the suspect left with about $400 from the home, the victim said.
She described the man as Hispanic, about 6 feet tall with a thin build, short brown hair with little facial hair and lighter skin. She said he may have been about 23 years old.
A deputy didn’t see any redness or bruising on the victim during the initial investigation, which was assisted by another investigator because of a language barrier, the report says.
Deputies put the woman’s home on a property check list and gave her the number for Safe Passage, which offers trauma informed services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse in York, Chester, Lancaster and Union Counties.
A sheriff’s spokesman said Friday that officers had not made any new developments in the case.
