Witnesses identify assault suspect through Facebook profile

A Facebook profile helped police confirm the identity of a second suspect accused of beating a man outside a home on 63rd Avenue North early Sunday morning. Thirty-four-year-old Brian Marvin Estevez was arrested and charged with second-degree assault and battery, damage to property and public intoxication after witnesses identified him as one of two men who beat a resident at the Myrtle Beach home. Witnesses told police they looked Estevez up on Facebook and found the profile of the second offender who was with him Sunday.
