logoFive men are accused of burglarizing a Rock Hill home Friday night and holding its residents at gunpoint, according to Rock Hill police.

Officers were called to the Cedar Grove Lane home after the burglars fled the scene around 9:44 p.m., said police spokesman.

The burglarized home is near Oakwood Acres Park, close to the intersection of Cherry Road and Mt. Gallant Road.  The residents told police that five people entered their home and demanded money and other valuable items from the victims. The defendants then finished ransacking the home, and fled from the scene of the crime.

Rock Hill’s K-9 unit was able to track the intruders and  subsequently arrested the five suspects for the home invasion.

Luckily, no one was injured during the incident.
