  • Updated Monday, September 23, 2013 11:14 am

At about 1:40 a.m. June 14 deputies were dispatched to Adam Court in Murrells Inlet because of an older man knocking on doors saying someone was trying to kill him.
When the deputies arrived, they saw it was a 69-year-old man they had dealt with twice that same night.
The man seemed to be intoxicated but did not have a smell of beer. It was determined he had been drinking mouthwash to get drunk.
The suspect told the officers he is a transient and had been all over the world.
The man said the individuals who tried to rob him were now trying to kill him. This, the report states, was in reference to an alleged prostitution deal that went bad.
The report states the attempted robbery was a false report made by the man.
He was arrested for public drunkenness and was taken to jail.

Gunfire near Maryville

A 19-year-old woman and 21-year-old man said they were shot at while at a home in the 4500 block of South Fraser Street Tuesday.
The two said they were at a home with a friend when a female homeowner said if they did not leave she would blow both of their heads off.
The victims said they walked out of the house and got in their car. They said they were waiting for their friend to come out so they could leave when the woman who made the threat and a 19-year-old man walked outside. They were both holding semi-automatic handguns, the report states.
They pointed the guns in the direction of the vehicle and fired several rounds.
The car was not hit and the victims fled the scene.
The suspects were not located but a warrant was expected to be signed.

Tickets issued after
gang reports

On June 13, a deputy was sent to the Greentown Community after receiving reports of “fights, unruly juveniles, gang activity and people in the streets blocking traffic,” the report states.
When the officer arrived he saw several people gathered  around a Toyota in the road. The driver of the car sped away when the deputy was spotted so a traffic stop was conducted.
The driver, an 18-year-old man, was ticketed for obstructing a roadway and was released. A few minutes later the deputy saw another vehicle stopped in the road on Mercer Ave.
When the deputy walked up to the car he saw a box of beer on the back seat. The driver was given tickets for obstructing a roadway and being a minor in possession of beer and was released. The beer was confiscated.

Man sees woman
beating his car

A man from Dogwood Street in Andrews said a 25-year-old woman he knows damaged his car June 15.
The man said he was visiting his sister at Devonshire Apartments when he heard a noise. He said he looked out the window and saw the woman beating on his car.
The deputy noted seeing large dents on the vehicle.
The woman was gone when the officer arrived. No reason was given in the report about a motive for the attack on the car.

Altered mental status

Deputies were sent to the Sampit Community Tuesday because of a man battling some mental issues.
The deputies met with the man who appeared to be in a state of distress. He continuously stated he was being chased around by giant snakes. He was also afraid of a cat near the front door.
He said he was not taking the medicine he was prescribed by a psychologist. The man was placed in protective custody and was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
