ROCK HILL — Authorities say a Rock Hill man broke into an apartment and tried to rob people inside at gunpoint, then took off his mask and apologized after someone recognized him.

Police told The Herald of Rock Hill that 26-year-old Zadgery McNeil forced his way into an apartment earlier this month, pointed a gun at a woman and demanded money.

Investigators say the suspect then went into another room and told a man to stop telling people he was a snitch.

Police say the man recognized McNeil’s voice, and he took off his mask and apologized for breaking in, then left.

McNeil remains in the York County jail charged with burglary and armed robbery. It wasn’t clear if he had an attorney.
