LANDRUM, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Landrum police said they were called to a local business after a woman said two men tried to rob and sexually assault her, but she scared them off when she fired shots at them.
Police said the attack happened about 1 a.m. According to the incident report, the woman had just locked the store's back door when two men approached her and demanded she go inside.
She refused, one of them pushed her against the door and ripped off her necklace while the other grabbed her earrings, according to the report.
Investigators said as she continued to refuse, the men ripped open her shirt, exposing her chest, so she offered to give them money she had in her back pocket. When she went for the money she pulled out her handgun and fired one round at the subjects, according to the report.
One of the men said "Oh, hell no" and they took off running, according to police. They said the victim ran to the police station to report the assault and attempted robbery.
Police used a canine unit to track the men, but were unable to catch them. They said the men were dressed in dark clothes. One had a dark, straight-billed baseball cap with bull horns on the front while the other was wearing a dark hoodie and dark baggy cargo pants.
Nothing was stolen, according to the report. As of Tuesday, no arrests have been made in the case.
