According to a report from the Horry County Police Department, the robbery happened around 8 p.m. at a home on S.C. 9 in the Nichols area. A man said two suspects approached him in the yard and held him at gunpoint, demanding he take them into the home to get money.

The man reportedly took both suspects inside. They proceeded to the rear bedroom, found the woman, and pointed a gun to her head while demanding money, the report stated.

Both suspects then took the man into the master bedroom and tied his hands and feet with black cord. He told police the assailants also struck him in the face.
