A birthday party for a 38-year-old Kingstree man, which took place at his mother’s home in Andrews March 3, ended in an altercation between the man and his 17-year-old daughter.
After the party the woman was making a plate of food to take to her mother when her father got upset and grabbed the spoon from her hand.
He then grabbed the woman by the shirt and started punching her in the head with a closed fist.
He also pulled her hair and broke some of her jewelry.
There was no visible injury on the woman’s head but she was complaining of headaches.
The case was expected to be presented to a magistrate for possible prosecution.
Assault with a pine cone
A 25-year-old Georgetown man said the mother of his child got mad at him and hit him on the head with a pine cone March 2.
He said he went to pick their child up at his grandmother’s house.
While there he said he would return the child at 6 p.m.
That caused the woman to get mad which is when she picked up the pine cone and threw it at him.
The man was unable to tell deputies how to spell the woman’s last name or where she lives.
A woman from the 600 block of DeBordieu Blvd. met with deputies March 2 and said some jewelry was missing from her mother’s safe.
The missing items were a Rolex watch and a diamond bracelet.
The woman provided a list of names of people who had access to the home.
Reported gunfire was fireworks
There was a report of possible gunfire from the end of Parkersville Road in Pawleys Island Feb. 28.
A deputy responded and reported hearing it himself.
A second deputy responded and the two officers talked with a woman who said the noise was her son who had been popping fireworks.
While on the scene, deputies talked with the director of St. Elizabeth Place who said someone had used a BB or pellet gun to shoot a window in mid February.
There are no suspects in that incident.
A Georgetown man met with deputies March 1 and said his 5-year-old daughter was molested by her uncle Feb. 29.
The child said the incident occurred in her bedroom. Before she was touched, her uncle reportedly asked if he could touch her and she said no but he did it anyway.
The case is still under investigation.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
