Masked men hold 79-year-old at gunpoint during home invasion, deputies say


Deputies in York County say three men wearing ski mask broke into a 79-year-old man's home and ransacked it while they held him at gunpoint.

The incident was reported on Tuesday at 10:45 p.m. at a residence on the 1500 block of South Anderson Road in Rock Hill, according to the report from the York County Sheriff's Office.

Carl Jackson, 79, told deputies that he was asleep in his bed when three men all wearing ski mask kicked in the side door to his home. All three had pistols, according to the report.

While one of the men held him at gunpoint in his bedroom, the other two ransacked his home, taking his wallet with $3 cash in it.

The men are described as white males wearing dark clothing and ski masks.

Jackson was taken to Piedmont Medical Center due to his shortness of breath and multiple health issues.

No arrests have been made in the case.

WBTV talked to Jackson's son Manuel who says this is the second time his father was robbed at his home. In September, men robbed Jackson at gunpoint as he was coming out the back door of his home. The robbers got away with a bank bag and knocked Jackson to the ground.

Manuel Jackson says he has a warning for both pairs of robbers, 

"Watch your back because I'll be there when you turn around. Somewhere, sometime, I will be there."

If you have any information, you're asked to call the York County Sheriff's Office.
