Deputies were sent to the 2800 block of Dunbar Road Monday afternoon where a 29-year-old woman said she was attacked by her 25-year-old male cousin.
She said he beat her on the head and face with his closed fist until she temporarily lost consciousness.
The woman had a swollen face and a cut above her eye, the deputy noted.
The woman said the altercation began because her cousin had stolen items from the house.
The man fled the scene before deputies arrived.
Witnesses reported seeing a man matching the suspect’s description running into some woods off Zeb Ford Road.
He was not located.
A trackhoe, valued at $100,000, was reported stolen from the site of the Goodwill store being built in Murrells Inlet.
The complainant said the trackhoe was on the property the afternoon of April 12 and was not there two days later.
The deputy went to the nearby Auto Zone and CVS to see if they had cameras that were aimed towards the construction site but they said “no.”
Front Street gunfire?
A man from the 2200 block of Front Street reported hearing gunfire outside his home at about 1 a.m. on April 12.
He said he and his cousin were inside his home when they heard the shots, so they hit the floor until the gunfire ended. He said he heard six shots fired.
The man said he thought one of the bullets came through his bathroom window.
Police say there was no evidence of shots being fired in or near the residence.
No bullet holes or shell casings were found. The man who called police appeared to be intoxicated.
Accused shoplifter flashes cop
A 26-year-old Georgetown woman, accused of shoplifting from Fred’s on North Fraser Street Sunday morning showed an officer more than he wanted to see.
A worker at the store said the woman set off the alarm when she was walking out. The worker told her to stop but she refused.
The officer found the woman and as he was questioning her about the shoplifting allegation, the woman lifted her shirt, exposing her stomach and bra, the report states.
“(I) did not ask the female to do that,” the officer wrote. He told her to put her shirt down. He found the woman’s purse in a drainage ditch and she admitted stealing DVDs and toy cars from the store.
The store manager said they would not press charges but they wanted the woman’s name on a no trespass list.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
