A Kensington man said he was assaulted by his wife and stepson after arriving home Monday.
The man said he had been out drinking so he called his son to pick him up. Once at home, the man’s 36-year-old wife told him he had to leave, the report states. The man said he pays the bills, so he was not leaving.
The couple then reportedly started calling each other names and she then pushed him down, causing him to hit his head on a counter.
The man said his stepson ran into the room and started hitting him on the face while yelling “old man, what now?”
The woman told a deputy her husband was drunk when he got home and she did not want him around her children and admitted pushing him down.
The woman’s son said when he saw what was happening, he “just had the urge to attack” the victim, so he did, the report states.
Both the woman and her son were arrested.

AHS student charged

A 16-year-old Andrews High School student was charged with simple possession of marijuana Monday.
The student was in the principal’s office because of an incident that occurred at last week’s football game. During the meeting, the school’s resource officer noted the teen was acting in a nervous manner and kept his hands in his pockets.
The officer asked the student to remove his hands from his pockets and then patted him down. Among the other items found in his pockets was a marijuana joint.
The teen is also facing possible expulsion.

Facebook ‘theft’

A 44-year-old County Line Road woman called deputies Monday because of the alleged theft of photos from her Facebook page.
The complainant said she posted several pictures of her grandchild on her Facebook page and the suspect — who is not a Facebook friend — “stole” the photos and placed them on her own page.
She said when she informed the woman she was seeking civil action, the woman removed the pictures from her page.

Medical mail stolen

An employee of Waccamaw Family Practice in Pawleys Island reported the theft of mail.
On Sept. 24, the worker said the mail was found on the grounds of Club Isis and was returned.
She said two of the envelopes that were returned were empty. The empty envelopes had been sent from other doctor’s offices meaning the contents may have contained patient information.
The worker said a report needed to be filed in case the theft leads to identity theft.
The same day, some businesses on Professional Lane reported mailboxes had been vandalized and mail was taken.
Most of the mail was found in a church parking lot and was returned to the recipients.

Man upset by sister-in-law

A Yadkin Ave. man apparently did not like his girlfriend hanging out with her sister-in-law.
According to a report filed Sept. 21, the man and his girlfriend were in bed and when she said she had been talking to her sister-in-law.
The 22-year-old man reportedly got mad and started yelling at her and then started choking her.
When the woman begged him to stop, he did, but started choking her again. She then yelled for her father and the man walked out of the house.
He was on a couch on the front porch when deputies arrived.
The man said his girlfriend was yelling and cursing, which, he said, is normal for her. He said he could not remember why they were arguing and denied touching her.
When the officers saw redness on the woman’s neck her boyfriend was arrested for criminal domestic violence.

Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
