One of the victims, a 47-year-old man from Rock Hill, was “bleeding profusely” when deputies arrived at the gas station around 9 p.m. Saturday, the report states.

He was attacked while sitting in his car, he told police. During a “scuffle,” the attacker “stepped on the gas and set the car in motion,” the report states.

Deputies subsequently found the car wrecked, 200 feet away from the gas station pumps, according to the report. The car had collided with a power pole.  A 24-year-old witness to told deputies that he and the injured man were at the Leslie Mart to pick up a female friend who had a fight with her significant other.  The friend, however, never showed up.

Police have charged a 24-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man with attempted armed robbery and criminal conspiracy in connection with the incident, the report states.  The woman charged is the friend the witness was attempting to meet at the Lesslie Mart.  The man and woman were arrested at the Leslie Inn, about 1,000 feet away from the gas station, the report states. They are each being held at the Moss Justice Detention Center on $19,000 bonds.
