Deputies were sent to Waverly Road in Pawleys Island at about 12:20 a.m. April 2 because of a physical altercation between a 29-year-old woman and her 33-year-old boyfriend.
The officers found the woman outside crying. She said her boyfriend attacked her in their apartment.
The woman said when she arrived home her boyfriend was passed out so she asked him to leave.
That, the woman said, was when he threw her on the floor and choked her. She said she ripped his underwear in order to get away.
The man admitted he was asleep when the woman got home but he said she started attacking him.
He said she was yelling about another woman while grabbing him and scratching him.
Because the officers could not determine who started the altercation, both were arrested for criminal domestic violence.
“Crazy Stupid” theft
A woman from Indigo Lane in Wachesaw Plantation reported a theft April 1. She said she placed several pieces of mail, including a Crazy Stupid Love DVD in her mailbox which was to be sent back to Netflix.
She later saw her mailbox had been opened and the DVD was missing.
A community security guard said there have been several movies stolen from mailboxes in the community recently.
A/C stolen from GFA
Someone stole an air conditioning unit from the side of Georgetown First Assembly of God Church on St. James Street but the thief may never be found.
According to a church worker, the theft was discovered Saturday but the last time the unit was used was in December, so it’s unknown when the a/c was stolen.
The case has been closed unless new evidence comes to light.
Burglary while victim sleeps
A woman from Cypress Creek Drive in Murrells Inlet said someone broke into her home while she was sleeping overnight March 31.
She said she was awakened by her dog growling but the animal did not bark so she thought he was reacting to a storm and she went back to sleep.
When she got out of bed later that day she saw a screen had been removed from a back window and she realized someone had been in the house.
Her purses and a camera were taken.
A man said he was out walking April 2 when he saw a pile of debris on Overland Road in Pawleys Island.
The pile contained chemical sprayers and a gun.
A deputy took possession of the 20-gauge shotgun which was placed into evidence.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
