ROCK HILL, S.C. - Three teenage girls are shaken up but feeling fortunate to be alive after an overnight home invasion in Rock Hill on Tuesday.
Their mother told Channel 9’s Ken Lemon her daughters have been unable to sleep since the blood-chilling incident Tuesday, when they awoke to find masked men in their room. It happened less than 20 minutes after the mother left for work – the men pushing all three daughters into their mother’s bedroom and then ransacking the house, according to police.

They took money and other items, police said, but were unable to open the safe. That money, the mother told Channel 9, was set aside for this month's rent.
Police are still working to identify the men involved, but so far, no arrests have been made.
