Upstate family says they were robbed of income tax return
SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -
An Upstate mother and son said they were robbed at gunpoint for their tax refund.
The mother told FOX Carolina it happened at their front door in Spartanburg.
The mother didn't want to be identified but said it happened at her home off East Main Street Friday night when her son left her home. Seconds later, she heard a knock at the door.
"He got ready to leave and when he left, a knock came at the door. It was someone behind him with a gun and asked us for our money," said the unidentified mother.
She said they gave the two men all the money they had and the robbers ran away in the direction of a nearby gas station. She also said she believes the two men spotted them trying to buy a car earlier that day with their income tax return and followed them.
If you have any information that can lead to an arrest, call Spartanburg Public Safety or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
