Three women report assault
Three women said a 31-year-old man assaulted them, according to a police report.
Edward David Yoskovich of Myrtle Beach is charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and two counts of third degree assault and battery, according to Myrtle Beach police.
Police were called for a domestic dispute at an apartment on the 2000 block of S.C. 15 in Myrtle Beach Friday morning. The three victims were outside and said Yoskovich was in the home. He answered the door, but refused to lie on the ground when police told him to and instead tried to enter the kitchen, the report said. Police used a Taser on him and restrained him.
A 20-year-old woman said she woke up cold, laying next to Yoskovich and asked for the blanket when they started arguing. Yoskovich is accused of ripping her clothes off and using her shirt in an attempt to strangle her, according to the report.
Police said the woman ran into a room where a juvenile girl was sleeping and phoned her mother, who became the third victim. The mother came to the house and found her daughter and the juvenile locked in a bedroom. She said Yoskovich threw a laundry basket that hit her in the lip.
The juvenile told police her 20-year-old friend came into her room naked with red marks on her chest and neck and was followed by Yoskovich. She said she got in front of him and told him to stop, but he pushed her to the floor, the report said.
All three victims declined medical treatment. Police found bruises on the neck of the 20-year-old along with several cut marks on her upper body. The other two did not have apparent wounds, the report said.
Yoskovitch has two prior convictions on criminal domestic violence charges in the last 10 years according to Myrtle Beach police.
