A 28-year-old Georgetown man says he was robbed of his car and $13 in cash Nov. 12.
The man said he was at Three Doors Disco in Plantersville when a man he knows asked him for a ride into town. The man’s cousin was also with him. The victim said he has never had any problems with the man who asked for a ride but did not know his cousin.
The victim said as he was driving on Highway 701, the man he knows told him to pull over. The suspect pointed a gun at the victim who pulled over. After being robbed of the money from his pockets, the victim ran from the car, the report states.
The man said the suspect was last seen driving north on Highway 701.
Heroin results in domestic violence
Deputies arrested a 40-year-old Andrews man who admitted using heroin which resulted in an altercation with his wife Nov. 12.
When deputies arrived at the home, the man walked outside holding items in his hand. Because the officers had been informed the man may have a gun, they ordered him to drop what he was holding, which he did. It was a TV remote and a phone.
The man said he thought he had killed his wife but deputies observed she “was not dead,” the report states.
The man was disoriented and confused and said he had used heroin and was hallucinating.
The woman said her husband had become belligerent and threw things throughout the house. She said he hit her, causing a bruise so she went to her bedroom and called 911.
The deputies did find a spoon and syringes in the house, believed to have been used for the heroin.
Crack pipes were also found in the home.
The man was arrested and was transported to jail.
Hospital worker stalked
A female Waccamaw Hospital worker reported a stalker Nov. 5. The woman told a deputy the man, who appears to be in his 30s, has been stalking her since March, 2012. She said the man has never talked to her but is always in the hospital looking at her when she works.
Once he used his phone to take pictures of her through a lab window. The woman said she did not tell the man to stop taking pictures because she “thinks he is crazy” and is scared to speak with him.
She said she notified the hospital security but they “have not handled the incident.” The deputy said it does not sound like the man has broken any laws but he could be placed on trespass notice with the hospital’s permission.
A security guard told the deputy since no laws were broken, they would not be placing the man on trespass notice.
“They also told me that they wouldn’t ask him for his name because they did not want to harass him and that was illegal,” the deputy wrote.
The man returned to the hospital after the deputy left and the woman took his picture which she emailed to the officers.
Brother-in-law threatens family
A man from the 4600 block of Highway 17 Business in Murrells Inlet called 911 Nov. 13 after his brother-in-law - a 50-year-old man - allegedly came to his home and threatened to kill the caller and his wife with a knife he was holding.
The suspect reportedly fled into the woods before deputies arrived.
The victim said the man had been staying with them but became disorderly and started cussing at him and his wife. It was during one of the altercations that the man reportedly pulled out the knife. He was hiding the knife behind his back at first but then pointed it at the male victim.
The homeowner also showed a deputy where the suspect had written the words “you are going to hell” on a door. He also broke a window out of a door, the report states.
The man had been drinking and was on drugs, the deputy was told. As a result, the man cut himself on the hand while holding the knife.
The man was located outside the house and was placed under arrest.
Taser threat calms combative man
Deputies were sent to a business in the 13300 block of Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island Nov. 5 after receiving reports a wanted man was at that location.
The deputies were told the 25-year-old man was seen outside the restaurant “flashing gang signs,” the report states. When the officers arrived, the suspect was found crouched down hiding in a corner of the restaurant. When the man saw the deputies he became “enraged” and was yelling and cursing and got into a “fighting stance.”
One of the deputies then pointed his Taser at the man which made the man even more angry. He allegedly threatened to beat the deputies if they used the Taser on him.
The man then said he would go peacefully if the deputy put the Taser away. The man did continue to yell but did not resist arrest.
The man, wanted for a parole violation in Horry County, was taken to jail.
