Man may have walked in on robbery

Abuse victim refused pressing charge
A 45-year-old woman refused to press charges early Thursday evening after telling police her boyfriend grabbed her, twisted her head and bit her, according to a report at the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
The report said that police responded to a domestic incident at a club where the woman told them she and her boyfriend had been arguing all night about the past and her use of medications. She said that after the first argument at a hotel, when her boyfriend allegedly twisted her arms and face, he took one of her pills and fell asleep.
The argument began again after he woke up. The report said, he again twisted her arms and face. The second time he also allegedly bit her.
Police reported the woman had bruises on her right cheek, left arm, right inner arm, light scratches on her face and a bite on her nose.
The woman said her boyfriend’s children were asleep in their hotel suite when she was attacked, but they didn’t witness the altercation.
Police said they will follow up on the report Friday to see if probable cause exists to seek a warrant on the boyfriend.
