Police Blotter: Teacher attacked by 7 year old
An out-of-control 7-year-old is accused of attacking and biting a teacher at Pleasant Hill Elementary School April 30.
A deputy talked with the principal about the student. The principal said the child had thrown things around the room and when she tried to use the classroom phone to call for help, the student “would not let her use the phone,” the report states.
The teacher used her cell phone and called another teacher and had them call the front desk for help.
Staff members were able to get the child down the hall but he ran back to the classroom.
The principal said when the child got back to the class, he started ripping decorations off the door.
When his teacher tried to calm him down, the student reportedly grabbed her around the waist, hit her on the back and bit her on the chest area, causing her to bleed.
When the teacher said she was hurt, the student reportedly said he was glad and told her she needed to leave.
The principal was able to calm him down enough to get him to the office where he stayed until a relative picked him up.
He has been recommended for expulsion.
Another Maryville burglary
Georgetown police are investigating another home burglary in the Maryville Community.
Georgetown Police Capt. Nelson Brown said the latest break-in occurred at a home on Helena Street between 8:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Friday.
Brown said the intruders stole a 42-inch TV, a video game system, $30 in cash and jewelry.
This is the second home on Helena Street to be burglarized in less than a month and the 13th in Maryville since November.
Brown said most of the burglaries fit the same MO (modus operandi or method of operation).
Brown said the way the suspect or suspects entered the homes, what they did inside, and the items taken were all very similar.
Brown said police continue to follow leads in the cases.
Camera credited for foiling thefts
A man from the 200 block of Graves Station Street said he arrived home from work at about 7:30 p.m. May 1 and saw his front door had been kicked in.
In fact, the frame to the door was on the floor in the living room.
There were many valuable things in the home but nothing was taken.
The man said he believes a security camera in his home may have scared off the intruder.
It was unknown at the time the report was written if the suspect was caught on camera.
Loose cat leads to
A 32-year-old Murrells Inlet woman was arrested for damaging the vehicle of a male friend who picked her up a bar after she had been drinking.
The man met with deputies and said after he picked the woman up at the bar, an argument erupted because she let her cat out of its cage inside his vehicle.
He asked her to put the cat back in the cage. She reportedly got mad and started kicking the windshield causing about $250 in damage.
The woman was charged with malicious injury to personal property.
Information is subject to change as the investigation proceeds. Individuals arrested and/or charged have not been convicted.
