ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - Two teens were arrested in an armed burglary and assault in Rock Hill Monday.

Rock Hill police say they were called to a home on Annafrel Street around 2:20 p.m. where a teen said he was in his room playing video games when six black males busted through the door and started assaulting him.

The teen said the men "took his sword and threatened to use it on him," according to the police report.

Jonathan Page, 18, and a 16-year-old, whose name is not being released, were arrested in the case.

The victim said the suspect stole numerous backpacks, shoes, his sword, and other items before fleeing. Officers located two of those matching the description of the robbers, Page and the 16-year-old, on N Confederate Avenue.

Three women went to the home afterward and confronted the victim and his family. Police say 37-year-old Barbara Ann Blake pulled a gun out and pointed it at the family before leaving.

The victim reportedly recorded the incident on a cellphone and later showed police.

Blake was arrested a short time later and faces charges of unlawful carrying of a weapon and pointing and presenting a firearm at a person.

They were arrested and both face charges of first-degree burglary and armed robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Detectives say the investigation is ongoing and they are working to identify the other four involved.
