A woman from the 100 block of Deas Drive in Sampit said someone shot her mobile home and her sister-in-law’s car Jan. 22.
A neighbor reported hearing gunshots between 2 and 3 a.m. but did not think anything of it because “she hears gunshots all the time,” the report states.
During the investigation it was learned a second vehicle had also been shot.
No suspects were listed on the report.
Woman accused of attacking her mother
A 31-year-old Plantersville woman was arrested after she allegedly assaulted her 62-year-old mother. Deputies responded to the Lucy Grier Road home Jan, 22 and found the younger woman who said her mother was picking on her all the time and was constantly nagging. Her mother had left the home before deputies arrived but returned while they were there and said she left because she feared for her safety.
The woman said her daughter hit her in the face three times, causing her glasses to break.
Her daughter was charged with simple assault.
Caught on a boat
A man met with deputies on Sandhole Road in the Lamberttown area Jan. 18 and said he walked out of his house at about 2 a.m. and saw someone on his boat.
When he yelled at the person, an unknown man jumped off the boat and ran in the woods.
A rifle and Q-beam light were missing from the boat.
The suspect has not been found.
Jail trustee splashed
An assault-by-liquid reportedly occurred at the Georgetown County Detention Center Jan. 21.
A 37-year-old inmate - a jail trustee - said he was serving meal trays when a 21-year-old inmate splashed an unknown liquid in his face from inside his cell.
The victim said he did want to press charges so the case was expected to be presented to a magistrate.
Assaulted in Walmart
Georgetown police met an 18-year-old woman at Walmart Jan. 17 after she was involved in an altercation with her ex-boyfriend - a 19-year-old Georgetown man.
The woman said she was in the store shopping with her daughter when her ex walked up and started begging her to take him back.
She said he followed her around the store and while in the women’s clothing area he reportedly tried to take her cell phone from her hand.
The woman yelled and was able to get away but about 30 seconds later the man ran back up to her and allegedly punched her in the throat and took off on foot.
A store worker called for help.
Police were given video from the store’s security cameras that shows the assault taking place. The woman had visible injuries to her neck.
The man was found at his residence and was taken to jail.
Store window broken
Police responded to an alarm activation at KYS clothing store in the 2000 block of Highmarket Street at about 2:30 a.m. Jan. 20 and saw the front window was broken.
No entry was made to the store.
Fight involving a knife
Deputies were dispatched to the Kangaroo convenience store in Pawleys Island at about 3:50 a.m. Jan. 18 because of a report of a fight in progress.
A 21-year-old Goose Creek man said he was with two of his friends when they decided they wanted to buy drugs.
He said he told them he did not want to be around drugs so he had them drop him off at the Kangaroo. He then called his father to pick him up. He said while waiting for his father, his friends returned and started yelling at him.
One of his friends - a 21-year-old Georgetown woman - reportedly slapped him on the face.
He said one of the male suspects began chasing him and threatened to kill him so he pulled out a knife in defense.
The woman involved told a deputy the Goose Creek man punched her in the eye. Her boyfriend said the man pulled the knife on him for no reason.
No one wanted to press charges, so they were all allowed to go home.
Man found in a ditch
A deputy was sent to the 500 block of Courtfield Court in Murrells Inlet Jan. 22 where a 33-year-old man was lying in a ditch beside the road. EMS was with the extremely intoxicated man when the deputy arrived.
The man said he had been living in the woods with some other people.
After being cleared from the hospital, the man was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Causing problems for EMS
A 44-year-old man from Elkader Drive in Pawleys Island was arrested for disorderly conduct Jan. 17.
A deputy was sent to the home to conduct a welfare check and no one would answer the door. The deputy noticed someone was looking out a window and turned the lights off.
The deputy knocked for about 15 minutes before someone finally opened the door.
When the deputy walked inside, an older woman quickly went to a bedroom.
A man was unconscious on the floor on the floor. The suspect - a 44-year-old woman - was “aggravating the situation and was causing more confusion.” The woman was advised to calm down and stop shouting so EMS could do their job.
She calmed down briefly but started shouting again.
She kept shouting and started using profanity. She then jumped in the ambulance and was told to get out. Because she kept causing problems, she was charged and was taken to jail.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
