Horry County police arrested two men after officers learned one man’s girlfriend and a 50-year-old woman were assaulted, according to a police report.

Bradley Rashad Palmer, 21, of Conway and Shakem Cameron Scott, 17, of Durham were each charged with third-degree assault and battery, according to authorities. Scott also faces a second charge of assault and Palmer a charge of criminal domestic violence stemming from the incident that occurred about 11:15 p.m. Monday.

Palmer also had outstanding warrants from Horry County police on unrelated charges of petty larceny with a value under $2,000, unlawful possession of a pistol, criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and failure to appear in court, according to police and jail reports.

Palmer is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center without bail on the failure to appear, but bond was set at $34,000 on the other charges, according to jail records. Scott was released hours after he was booked on Tuesday on $1,000 bail.

The charges stemmed from a 27-year-old woman telling police she went to break up a fight between the 50-year-old woman and the two men when Palmer threw her into a bush and Scott punched her in the chest because she tried to intervene, according to the report. The younger woman said she argued with the men and Scott shoved her against a wall and Palmer hit her in the face and pulled her hair out.

The younger woman said she had been living with Palmer and they have a child together, according to the report. The women had three small children in their care at the time of the incident.
