Rock Hill man charged with attempted murder after double-barreled assault on woman

DUNCAN Rock Hill Police Department

One man is facing attempted murder charges after police say he attacked a woman with two firearms, one in each hand.

Rock Hill police were called to a home on the 1100 of Glenarden Drive at 8:45 a.m. Tuesday after a woman said she was beaten in the face with a gun handle.

Officers found the 26-year-old woman with a bleeding, swollen right cheek. The woman told officers she was standing outside her home when Tavarous Danyeil Duncan, 30, pulled up in his car and got out carrying two handguns, a police report states.

Duncan reportedly stood close to the woman, pointing both firearms directly at her head, and threatened her life.

When the woman heard one of the guns “click,” she slapped the gun away from her. Duncan then struck her in the head with the barrel of the other weapon, according to the report.

The victim couldn’t identify what kind of weapons Duncan had, only saying one handgun was black and the other silver. She declined medical attention.

Duncan was later taken into custody and booked on a charge of attempted murder. Bond was denied.
