CHURCH HILL — Two men who broke into a residence near Church Hill early Saturday morning apparently in search of pills assaulted a pregnant woman with a baseball bat before getting away with the victim’s purse.

As the two male suspects were fleeing, the woman fired several shots at a purple Ford Ranger with a .22-caliber pistol.

One of the suspects, Benjamin “Craig” Carroll, 35, 323 Jones Road, Church Hill, was recognized by the woman. Police found Carroll and the bullet-riddled Ford Bronco at his residence, resulting in charges including aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and theft under $500.
