A Georgetown man says he was assaulted while at Sarah’s Nightlife in Andrews June 28.
The man said while in the bar a 30-year-old man approached his girlfriend and told her she needed to be with him and not her boyfriend because, at age 46, he is too old.
He told her he could make her forget about her boyfriend.
He then proceeded to tell the victim’s girlfriend she has a “fat rear end,” the report states.
When the woman’s boyfriend confronted the suspect about his comments, the younger man “turned around and hit him in the face with a closed fist.”
The victim fell on the floor and the two started fighting. He said he was hit in the face several times with a closed fist.
The victim said he left the bar after the altercation.
A bartender confirmed the victim’s story about what happened.
The suspect, who was still at the bar when deputies arrived, was arrested for simple assault.
The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office is investigating more then $4,800 worth of equipment reportedly stolen from a sewer station near the intersection of Powell and Saints Delight Road.
An employee with the Georgetown County Water and Sewer District said the last time the equipment was accounted for was in January when inventory was taken.
The report states it’s “different types of pipes and equipment” that was stolen. The worker did say heavy machinery had to be used because the items taken weigh more than 1,000 pounds.
“He said they have a camera but it points straight down from the water tower if it’s even working,” the report states. “He said he did not have any suspects in mind.”
Repo man troubles
Deputies were sent to Maidenbush Road in Pleasant Hill June 25 because a man trying to repossess a car was having problems.
The repo man said he was given permission to take the car by the owner of the uncle of the man who had the car because the car was on the uncle’s property.
The car was loaded onto the tow truck when the fiance of the woman who had the vehicle said one of the tires had been changed and it belonged to his cousin. The suspect jumped in front of the tow truck and would not let him leave. The driver said he moved up slowly and did not hit the man but the suspect began acting as if he had been struck by the tow truck.
The repo man was able to get out of the yard with the car in tow and then met with deputies. He showed them a video of the incident. He said the video would prove he never hit the man.
The driver said he wanted the incident on file in case anything happens in the future as a result of the repossession.
Cameras no help
A woman called Georgetown police June 24 and reported someone had used spray paint to vandalize the outside of an apartment on Avant Court.
The shape of a heart was painted using both white and black paint.
There are security cameras that police installed in that area recently but the camera was no help because someone had tampered with it making it point at the ground.
The estimated cost to repair the damage is $200.
Deputies met with a woman from Myrtle Russell Place in Andrews June 29.
She said a group of kids were playing next to her house and she told them to leave because of recent damage they had allegedly caused. She said when she went outside she saw the passenger side window on her vehicle was broken.
The woman said she is aware identifying a suspect will be difficult but she wanted the incident documented.
The deputy said extra patrols of the area will take place during the day while the kids are active.
