A 40-year-old Georgetown woman says she was threatened by a 70-year-old man who wanted sex from her because he had recently bailed her out of jail.
The woman said she had been talking to the man on the phone July 27, then — at about 4 a.m. — he showed up at her house.
She said they spent about three hours eating and watching TV then the man told her she was going to have sex with him since he got her out of jail.
The woman told him there would be no sex. The man responded by saying if she refused he would have her bond revoked.
He then reportedly pulled out a knife and said if she did not have sex, he would “gut her,” the report states.
The woman then ran out of her Graves Station community home and went to a neighbor’s house to call 911.
Deputies found the man at his house on West Virginia Road. When they patted him down they found four knives in his clothing.
The man was taken to jail for assault and battery second degree.
outside MI bar
Deputies responded to the Beaver Bar in Murrells Inlet at about 4:45 a.m. July 27 for what they were told was a theft situation.
When they arrived they were told by several people that shots had been fired in the parking lot and the bar owner was following the suspects in a vehicle.
One of the officers found a man outside the bar who had a bleeding right hand. The 30-year-old Murrells Inlet man said he had been shot at by an unknown man who has a beard.
He said he had been in the bar and got into an argument with two men he does not know.
He said the men walked outside and were yelling for him to join them. The man said he was near the entrance of the bar when one of the men pulled out a gun and fired in his direction.
The victim said he started running in the parking lot and was ducking behind tables and chairs in an attempt to keep from getting shot.
He said he is unsure if his minor hand injury was caused by a bullet or if it happened when his hand hit the ground. He refused medical treatment.
The alleged shooters were not located.
at the Creamery
Counterfeit cash has been a problem for law enforcement agencies for decades but now counterfeit coupons are popping up.
The manager of Cold Stone Creamery met with a deputy July 25 to report a woman had been in the store and attempted to use a fake coupon.
The coupon had the name of the business on it and stated it was for a free ice cream cone.
The customer would not let the employee hold the coupon, so the worker called for assistance from the owner.
Because the woman was yelling, the owner told the worker to make a copy of the coupon and then return the original to the customer. He also allowed them to have the six cones they ordered for the price of three.
The manager said when she arrived at work she saw the copy of the coupon and knew it was fake. She said she contacted company headquarters and was told there were no half-price promotions taking place.
leads to park fight
Two females — ages 16 and 18 — were in a fight at Bromell Park in Plantersville July 29.
When a deputy arrived, there was a group around the women. The officer was able to separate the two. They said they had been in a homosexual relationship but had broken up.
They said “some incident that occurred on Facebook caused them to agree to meet at the park for the purpose of fighting,” the report states.
Both were treated for minor injuries and were charged with simple assault.
A man from Manchester, New Hampshire says more than $830 worth of items were stolen from his vehicle while he was vacationing on Courtfield Drive in Murrells Inlet.
He said he checked his vehicle after returning from supper July 27 but when he got up the following morning he saw someone had broken out a back window.
Two suitcases and a small safe box were taken from the car.
The incident report does not list what was inside the cases.
‘Known heroin addict’ accused of thefts
A man from Heron Way says he was betrayed by a man he was trying to help out.
The man says he was allowing a 25-year-old friend stay at his house because he is a known heroin addict and needed help.
The victim said the suspect allegedly stole $150 from a change jar, two nail guns, a $450 watch and 40 Hydrocodone pills from him.
He said the suspect admitted to the thefts and said he pawned the nail guns.
The same man is also accused of stealing from the victim’s neighbor.
The investigation continues.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
