Police Blotter: Man struck by debt collector's vehicle
A Meadow Street man said a male acquaintance stopped by his house Saturday afternoon trying to collect $50 the victim had borrowed from him.
The victim said he repaid the suspect the money a few weeks ago.
He said he was standing in front of the suspect's vehicle and told him to leave his property. He said the suspect then struck him with the vehicle, knocking him on the ground.
The suspect then used his vehicle to spray rocks all over the victim's new car.
A woman on the scene said when she confronted the suspect, he held out a knife.
The victim refused medical treatment although he was in serious pain due to recent back surgery.
The matter is still being investigated.
TP problem at Ricefields
Deputies were sent to Ricefields Plantation in Pawleys Island at about 10:30 p.m. Nov. 30 because of two SUVs racing down the road and "acting suspicious.:"
While looking for the vehicles, the deputies saw toilet paper all over the road in several places.
A deputy pulled over one of the vehicles and saw the driver attempting to hide a roll of toilet paper between his seat and the center console.
When the second vehicle was stopped, the occupants claimed they had nothing to do with the incident but there was toilet paper hanging from the SUV.
There were seven teenagers involved and they were ordered to clean up the toilet paper while the deputies and their parents supervised.
The teens were not charged with a crime since the area was cleaned.
Domestic knife violence
A 62-year-old Rose Hill Road man is accused of threatening his wife with a knife Nov. 29.
The woman said they were arguing when her husband threw a gas heater on the floor, cutting himself on the hand in the process. That is when he allegedly grabbed a knife and "swung it at her."
When she tried to block the knife, it struck her on the hand causing a minor cut. The man then reportedly knocked the woman to the floor. She said she was able to leave the house and go to a nearby church to call 911. The man said his wife caused the cut on his hand when she used a knife on him.
He was arrested for aggravated assault.
