SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Three men threatened a 70-year-old Boiling Springs woman with baseball bats Tuesday morning, according to Spartanburg County deputies.

According to an incident report, three men went to a home on Springdale Circle and began beating on the door. The trio demanded to know where another person was, but the residents told the group they did not know the whereabouts of that person. Two of the three men then went back to their car, retrieved baseball bats and began making threats. When the woman at the home demanded the trio leave, two of the men held the bats up as if they were going to hit her. The group fled the home when the woman called for help.

Deputies said they responded to the area and began searching for the three men. They said two of them, identified as 18-year-old Jamin Carithers and 18-year-old Robert Williams, both of Spartanburg, were found about two hours later a home on Old Boiling Springs Road.

Andrew Bowyer, who is 18 and from Boiling Springs, was later taken into custody.

All three men have been charged with second-degree assault and battery. They were all given a $5,000 bond Tuesday night.
