A man from Perry allegedly pointed a gun at two females, told them to “get on the floor and empty their pockets” and then took a cell phone during an incident at a house on Center Street in Wagener on Friday.
The victims said the subject fired the gun at the house’s ceiling after they said they “didn’t have anything,” according to an Aiken County Sheriff’s Office report on the incident.
The man who lives at the house told the responding officer that the victims were watching the residence for him while he was out of town at a family gathering.
The victims said they were watching television and “having a few beers” when they heard a knock on the door, according to the report. One of the victims answered the door and that’s when the male subject pointed the gun and made his demand.
The victims said the subject was accompanied by two other males, one also from Perry and another from Wagener. The victims identified all three subjects and said the subjects left after taking the cellphone.
The responding officer observed a hole in the ceiling of the house.
