Police Blotter: Crowd watches as man is attacked
A man says he was assaulted while at the Beaver Bar in Murrells Inlet at about 3 a.m. Sept. 15.
The 22-year-old Surfside Beach man said he was about to leave the bar when he was pushed by a man he does not know.
He said he pushed the man back and both were then escorted out of the building by a bouncer.
The man said once they were outside, a large group of people started screaming at him.
He said he got in his car and as he was driving off, someone ran up and punched him in the face and broke the mirror off his vehicle.
A deputy watched video from a security camera and it confirmed what the victim said.
The suspect in the case has not been identified.
Stolen manhole covers
Six manhole covers, worth about $1,800, were reported stolen from the Greentown community Sept. 14.
A man who works for Georgetown County Water and Sewer District said two covers were taken from Mercer Drive and four were missing from Graves Station Road.
The worker said the covers weigh about 150 pounds each.
Deputies were sent to the County Detention Center Sept. 16 because of an altercation between three female inmates.
A 36-year-old woman said she was in an argument with two other women the previous day and she was told by one of the women that it was not over.
The next day the two women went into the victim’s cell and started beating her in the head and face until they were separated by guards.
The woman suffered a black eye and knots on her head.
The suspects were charged with assault.
A 21-year-old Mount Pleasant man used a $20 bill to pay for car repairs in Georgetown Sept. 13.
But, the man being paid saw it was counterfeit so he began chasing the suspect on Highway 17.
While following the suspect, the victim called 911 and a Highway Patrol officer made a traffic stop on the vehicle at Cooter’s store south of Maryville.
While speaking with the suspect, an officer noticed beer and pizza in the vehicle, so he went inside the store and asked if the man had purchased the items at that location.
It was determined the money used to pay the store was also fake.
The suspect said the bills were made at his apartment in Charleston.
The man, and three others in his vehicle, were arrested.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
