MYRTLE BEACH — A Myrtle Beach man faces criminal domestic violence charges allegedly after arguing with a woman about cheese Friday night, police said.
Craig Paul Rakoski, 46, was charged with criminal domestic violence-second offense in 10 years. He was being held at Myrtle Beach jail without bond.
According to a Myrtle Beach police report, officer responded to the Wayfarer Motel located at 311 N. Ocean Blvd at about 9 p.m. Friday for a reported criminal domestic assault.
Officers spoke with a 48-year-old woman who said she and Rakoski were in bed when they began to argue about cheese. The victim told police she said she did not like cheese. She told police that he suddenly grabbed her around her neck, let go, then began to punch her in the face. She said she and Rakoski are common-law married.
Police said Rakoski refused to provide any information about the incident and “at one point denied even knowing the victim.” Officers said they arrested him because the victim’s injuries were consistent with her story and Rakoski provided no counter story.
