A woman from Summit Ave. in Kensington said she was sleeping March 7 when someone touched her leg.
She said it was very dark and she asked five times who was in the room but did not get an answer.
“She stated she could feel the presence of someone at the side of her bed and she could feel a hand on her and could smell an odor of alcohol coming from someone’s breath,” the report states.
The woman said the intruder finally said her name and she realized it was her former boyfriend. She said he was not supposed to have a key to her house.
The woman said the suspect told her he was “addicted to her” and had not eaten in months. She told him he should not be at her house because they were no longer dating.
The woman said when she turned on a light, she saw her ex was naked.
The man got dressed and the woman followed him down the hall to make sure he left the house. Before leaving he reportedly grabbed a painting off a wall but the woman grabbed it from him.
The man jumped in his vehicle and sped away.
The woman said he got in the house by going into her unlocked car and using the garage door opener.
The 29-year-old man was found and was arrested for burglary.
Burglary at Backwoods Quail Club
Deputies responded to the Backwoods Quail Club in the Rhems community on March 8 because of a burglary. One of the owners said he received a call from the alarm company and was on the scene within two minutes. He said he noticed the back door had been pried open.
The man said he looked at surveillance camera footage and saw two men coming in the back door. One of them walked to the cash register and took all the cash.
The other man walked around, taking various items including five shotguns, four pairs of sunglasses and more than $1,500 in cash.
An employee who looked at the video said she is certain she knows one of the suspects. She said they had been in the store two days prior to the burglary asking about shotguns.
The two were arrested for burglary.
Man accused of harassment
A woman from Lotus Court in Murrells Inlet said she is being harassed by her 47-year-old ex-boyfriend from Surfside Beach.
She said he is calling her, texting her, and appearing at locations where she is and it is becoming “annoying and aggravating,” the report states.
She said she filed a report in February for the same thing but the harassment did not stop.
She said on March 8, she was at her mailbox when the suspect drove up behind her vehicle blocking her in. She said he walked over to her car and kept her from closing the door.
“I love you. I just want to talk,” the man reportedly said.
The woman was on the phone with her sister who was calling 911 on her behalf. When told police had been called, the man fled the scene.
The woman said she is not afraid of her ex but wanted to press harassment charges, so the case was expected to be presented to a magistrate.
Two deputies and Midway Fire Rescue responded to the Pawleys Island tavern at about 1 a.m. March 8. There were seven men outside the bar but the victim - a 45-year-old Pawleys Island man was inside. He was conscious and was complaining about his head hurting.
Witnesses said a group of men jumped on the victim inside the bar but no one could say who punched the man.
No charges were filed.
Stolen item found
A man from Andrews said he was in a pawn shop in his town March 7 when he saw an air compressor that had been stolen from his property three weeks prior.
He was told by a store worker the air compressor would be held and a police report needed to be filed.
He was advised he needed to show some proof he was the owner of the compressor.
