Police Blotter: Woman attacked by father and grandfather

  • Wednesday, July 30, 2014

A woman from Deer Springs Loop near Andrews, said she was attacked by her father and grandfather July 17.

The woman said she has been living at the home for five months but was evicted by her father and grandfather.

She said when she asked to get her money and medication out of the safe, she said her father “became enraged” and started punching her in the head and pulling her hair.

The woman said her father knocked her down and started pulling her out of the house by her hair.

While this was happening, her 71-year-old grandfather was kicking her, the woman reported.

She said her sister tried to intervene but was unable to pull the men off of her.

Another man on the scene was able to separate them.

A witness reported hearing the woman’s father telling the victim he would kill her.

Another witness told the deputy the woman’s father got mad “for no apparent reason” and attacked his daughter.

He said the man was “yelling and beating his chest” while the assault was taking place.

The woman’s grandfather said he was the one attacked for no reason but he would not give the deputy details of the attack.

He was issued a citation for simple assault but was not taken to jail because he is the caregiver for his ailing wife.

The victim’s father had left the scene before the deputy arrived.

Mysterious dog death

A woman from the 100 block of Earl Drive said a 44-year-old man stopped by her house July 6 to see her husband.

While he was there, [for a reason not mentioned in the report] the man threatened to kill the woman’s dog.

She said when she returned home July 16, she found the dog dead.

The woman said it was getting dark when she found the dog so she is unsure how it dies. She and her husband buried the dog.

She said she wanted the case documented in case her other dog is threatened.

Copper theft

A deputy was sent to Pangborn warehouse on Gapway Road July 18 where he met with the owner.

She said someone broke into the building within the previous two weeks and took the copper water line out of the ceiling.

She said when the piping was removed it caused the entire warehouse to flood.

It appears entry was made through a back door.

Vacuum threat

A man threatened his girlfriend with a vacuum cleaner, according to a report filed Juky 15.

A woman, from the 200 block of Saints Delight Road, said her 18-year-old boyfriend got mad when she said she needed to get the oil changed in her vehicle.

The woman said her boyfriend started tearing the house apart and told her he was going to “throw a vacuum cleaner in her face,” the report states.

The man admitted tearing up the house and said he wanted his girlfriend to leave which she agreed to do voluntarily.

The woman decided she did not want to press charges.

Stolen tools

A man from the 200 block of Carraway Drive in northern Georgetown County said about $1,000 worth of tools were stolen from the toolbox in the back of his pickup truck.

The man said the theft occurred while he was away from home the evening of July 15.
