A 33-year-old Myrtle Beach woman was arrested early Tuesday after her boyfriend told officers that she beat him with a lock because he asked about Facebook messages being sent to the woman’s daughter, according to a police report.
Tedra Yolanda Tucker, 33, of Myrtle Beach, was charged with criminal domestic violence after officers were called by the woman’s daughter at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday to 1300 Spivey Ave., police said.
Police noted in the report they took Tucker and the 41-year-old man into custody and sought warrants for their arrest. But the man was not booked into the Myrtle Beach Jail at 7 a.m. Tuesday to face any charges.
The Sun News does not identify suspects unless arrest warrants are issued for their arrest.
When officers responded to the incident they were met by the man, who had blood on his head and shirt and Tucker, who had blood on her clothing, according to the report. The juvenile told police that she was sleeping on the couch when she woke up to hear her mother yelling for her to call police.
The juvenile said she went to the bedroom and the man opened the door, gave her a phone and told her to call police, according to the report. Tucker told police she was sleeping when the man came in and asked who was sending her daughter Facebook messages at 3 a.m.
Tucker said she told the man she didn’t want to hear about it while she was sleeping, according to the report. Tucker said the man got on top of her and hit her in the face, chest and arms several times and that was when she yelled for help because he would not let her up.
Tucker said she grabbed a metal lock from the nightstand and hit the man in the head several times.
The man told police when he arrived home he saw the juvenile’s phone going off and saw Facebook messages that were sent to the girl, according to the report. The man said he went to speak to Tucker about the messages and she yelled that she didn’t want to hear about them and kicked him.
The man said Tucker grabbed the lock and hit him several times, according to the report. The man said he kept Tucker in the room because he did not want her to leave and get a knife.
Officers noted the man had several injuries and was treated by EMS, but that Tucker did not have any visible injuries.
