Crime-March 8, 2012
Published Thursday, March 8, 2012
A woman from Lee Ave. in Murrells Inlet said she was sleeping Feb. 25 and was awakened by her 25-year-old son who was on his hands and knees crawling into her bedroom.
She said she believes he was trying to get her car keys off her dresser.
When she asked him what he was doing he claimed he was going to try to wake her up. When she said she thought he was getting the keys, he got upset and started hitting and pushing her.
When she called 911, her son grabbed $15 of her money from a counter and ran out the door.
The case was presented to a magistrate for possible warrants.
Disabled woman attacked by husband
Deputies were sent to Waccamaw Community Hospital Feb. 26 where they met a woman in the waiting room who had been attacked by her husband.
The disabled woman said her husband threw her on the ground and stomped on her hand while at their Murrells Inlet home. He then threw a plate of food on her then started kicking her all over her body.
He then forced her out of their house and drove off and wrecked a short time later.
The man claimed his wife received her injuries by falling out of bed. He also said he did not force her out of the house, saying she left on her own.
The man was arrested for domestic violence.
A woman from Savannah left her dog at a pet care service in Pawleys Island for 71 days.
When she retrieved the dog she noticed it had lost quite a bit of weight and was missing its dew claws.
She said she felt the dog had been abused.
The woman was told by a deputy it is normal for dogs to stop eating when at a strange location and there is nothing wrong with having dew claws removed.
The deputy also told the woman it is a civil, not criminal, matter.
Woman asleep in a van — in a ditch
While patrolling the area of Spanner Way in Murrells Inlet at about 2:20 a.m. Feb. 23, a deputy saw a van in a ditch.
There was a woman in the passenger’s seat of the van but she was asleep.
When the deputy awakened the woman — described as highly intoxicated — she said she was waiting for her husband. She said she had no idea the van was in a ditch.
An effort was made to find the woman’s husband but he was not located.
The van was towed. No charges were filed against the woman since she was not found in the driver’s seat.
Man hurts himself with screwdriver
Deputies were sent to Wells Fargo Bank at about 3:45 p.m. Feb. 17 because of a bleeding man behind the building.
At first, the 24-year-old injured man was not found but officers talked with another man who said the person they were looking for was his son who was drunk and had been causing problems at a business near the bank.
When asked how his son received his injuries, the man said his son had grabbed a screwdriver and was beating it against his chest “as if he were boasting,” the report states.
While searching for the injured man, the deputies received word a Highway Patrol officer was out with him on Crooked Oak Drive.
When asked how he got hurt, the man said he had been “jumped” so he was asked if he knews his attackers.
“You know I cannot tell you. I am not a snitch,” the man reportedly responded.
The man was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries. At the time of the report, it was unknown if charges would be filed.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
