Deputies were sent to the 500 block of Ford Village Road in Plantersville Sept. 13 where they saw a woman in her neighbor's front yard.
She was crying and was covered in dirt.
The woman said her ex-boyfriend — a 30-year-old Georgetown man — forced his way into her house the grabbed her by the arm and forcibly pulled her through the home making sure there was no one else inside.
“I told you I would come back to get you,” the man allegedly told her.
The man then picked up a hammer and tried to hit the woman on the head with it. He missed, so he grabbed a knife.
The woman was able to run out of the house but her ex continued to chase her.
He jumped on top of her but she was able to break free.
That is when she ran to the home of a neighbor who called 911.
The man then fled the scene in a vehicle. Before he left he reportedly broke a window in the woman's car.
The woman said she has filed reports in the past of the man breaking into her house.
The man was not located by deputies.
You die call
A 74-year-old Georgetown woman said she received a threatening call Tuesday afternoon.
She said when she answered her ringing phone, a female on the other end said “you die.”'
Nothing else was said.
Multiple guns stolen
A man from the 10200 block of Old Pee Dee Road said his house was burglarized while he was at his mother's residence working on a tractor Tuesday.
He said when he returned he saw his sliding glass door was unlocked which was unusual.
He then discovered his seven guns were gone from his gun cabinet.
The man and his wife said they think a friend who was at their house the previous day may be responsible. They say he has a drug problem.
Teen charged in hit and run
A 16-year-old from Pawleys Island was arrested Sept. 6 after allegedly being involved in a hit-and-run on River Oaks Drive.
The teen's vehicle was spotted in front of Waccamaw High School. The car had a blown front tire.

They were washing clothes. The complainant said he told the couple they had to leave, which they did. It is unknown if they are responsible for the theft.
