He Brought a Knife To a Gunfight - - and Won

Which reflects badly on the quality of the thugs in Rock Hell Hill, SC:

A Rock Hill man being held at gunpoint by two teenage boys on Saturday managed to injure one of his attackers with a pocket knife, police say.

At about 11:30 p.m., officers received calls about a possible armed robbery near Hampton Street, according to a Rock Hill police report. When police arrived, they found a man kneeling on the ground with a cut on his head.

The man, 47, told police he was walking home from the store with an 18-pack of Busch Light beer in hand when he noticed two teenage boys, both 16, following him, the report states.

One of the boys brandished a gun, police say, and told the man to “give it up.” When he heard the boy chamber a round in the gun, he grabbed the boy’s arm, took out a pocket knife and swung the knife at the boy.

The man said the boy hit him several times with the handgun before he fled with the other teen, the report states. Police found the discarded 18-pack of beer on the ground, while EMS treated the man, who said he could positively identify his attackers if police found them.
