Man assaults niece
A 46-year-old Georgetown man is facing serious charges pending the outcome of an investigation that he sexually assaulted his 13-year-old niece who lives in Georgia.
The girl’s mother said the alleged incident happened while the teen was visiting her relatives in Georgetown in June.
The teen told her mother she was asleep one night when the man walked in her bedroom and raped her by force.
The woman took her daughter to the hospital to be tested.
Woman accuses father
A woman from Parkersville Road in Pawleys Island said when she went to sleep Aug. 10, there was more than $700 in the back pocket of her pants.
She said when she woke up only $180 remained.
The woman said she thinks her 51-year-old father took the cash because, she said, he was upset when she refused to loan him $20 to buy drugs.
The man denied the allegations, saying he would never do that to his daughter.
