A Georgetown woman met with police April 11 and said her 4-year-old twin grandson and granddaughter were sexually assaulted by a 7-year-old.
The woman was told by her grandson that he and his sister were playing with the 7-year-old neighbor – something they often do – when the older child sexually assaulted the girl.
He then committed the same act on the little boy, according to the report.
The grandmother was not going to press charges at first but was advised by family members to call police.
The Child Recovery Center was scheduled to interview the twins about the incident.
Phone used as weapon
Deputies met with a man in the Georgetown Memorial Hospital emergency room April 13 who said his 25-year-old girlfriend stopped by his King Street home and started yelling at him about a girl he is dating.
The man said his ex “thrust” a phone at him causing him to fall back.
He was bleeding so he drove to the hospital where he discovered his nose was broken.
He also had a cut above his left eye.
The man said he did want to prosecute so a warrant was prepared for a magistrate to sign.
Theft in Murrells Inlet
A golf cart, air compressor and cordless drill were reported stolen from a home in the 600 block of WM Dallas Ave. in Murrells Inlet April 13.
The air compressor and drill were on the golf cart when it was last seen April 12.
A neighbor called the victim and said he saw a red air compressor in the parking lot of Lee’s Inlet Kitchen.
When the victim got to the parking lot, the compressor was gone but he did see golf cart tracks in the gravel.
There are no suspects but the victim said he thinks someone from his neighborhood is responsible.
Wanted to sell food
A 26-year-old Georgetown woman was spotted shoplifting at the North Fraser Street Food Lion April 13.
When police arrived she reportedly admitted trying to steal a pack of ground beef and a pack of round roast. A witness saw her putting the meat in her purse.
“She said she wanted to sell the meat in order to get money,” the report states.
The woman has two prior shoplifting convictions so she was arrested again.
Man tries to fool pharmacist
A pharmacist at Georgetown’s Walgreen’s store said a 52-year-old man tried to fill out a fake prescription for Hydrocodone.
The man reportedly told the pharmacist he needed the prescription filled for his uncle.
When the pharmacist asked the man his uncle’s date of birth, the suspect – a Georgetown man – pulled a paper from his pocket and read from it.
Sensing some thing was not right, the pharmacist called the doctor’s office on the prescription and was told the doctor who supposedly filled out the form does not work at that office.
When asked for his ID, the suspect handed it to the pharmacist but then left and did not return.
The fake prescription form and the man’s ID were placed into evidence.
Rent money theft
A burglary was reported at an apartment in the 4300 block of Crepe Myrtle Court in Murrells Inlet.
Two women who live at that apartment said whoever broke in, stole their rent money.
They said when they returned home, they saw the front door was open and there were no signs of forced entry.
One of the women said a former roommate still has a key to the apartment.
The case is still under investigation.
