Crime in the County
The following incidents were obtained from Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A woman sent what appears to be a clear message to her common-law husband during a domestic dispute on a recent afternoon near Moncks Corner. She told him to get out of the residence and started throwing his clothes onto the front porch after she says he punched a hole in the wall during a verbal altercation that day.
She told a deputy he has been verbally abusive to her for a while. She said she pushed him out the door because she did not want to deal with him while he was angry. He was gone by the time the deputy arrived to hand her an order of protection, protective measures form.
• A woman called police on her husband after she met the father of her child at a bar off Highway 41 on a recent evening. Her husband walked into the bar irate and she says he struck her on the left side of her face and told her her she shouldn’t be there. The woman said she returned home and called 911 saying she wished to press charges because she feared for her safety. The officer was unable to observe any signs of physical injury.
Deputies met the husband who said he was irate that she was at the bar with her child’s father and that he had poked her in the face while telling her to go home. He was placed under arrest for criminal domestic violence and taken to the detention center.
• A St. Stephen man recently reported the front boat seat was stolen off his boat parked in his neighbor’s yard off Kylie Lane.
• During an agency assist on a recent night in Bonneau a deputy approached a stopped vehicle and asked the subject to roll down his window. The subject instead opened the door and told the deputy he has warrants out for his arrest in Bonneau. The deputy detained the subject until he could confirm the warrants.
Bonneau authorities came to the Black Oak Road location and picked up the subject.
