— Myrtle Beach police charged a 19-year-old man in connection with woman being threatened by a knife last month while the couple argued about money and an income tax return, according to a police report.

Lequon Dyon Godbolt, 19, Longs was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature when he surrendered to police at 7:30 a.m. Thursday at the Myrtle Beach Police Department, according to an arrest report.

Myrtle Beach police sought an arrest warrant for Godbolt after a 21-year-old woman reported that at 8:30 a.m. April 26, Godbolt picked her up from work and told her he had her birthday presents and she said she wanted to go to breakfast, according to the report.

The victim said they have three children together and they had argued because she claimed them on her taxes.

The victim said after she got into the vehicle with Godbolt he pulled out a knife and threatened her, according to the report. The victim said she tried to get out of the vehicle and yell for help, but was not able to do so.

The victim said Godbolt put the knife down and she took it and he tried to grab her purse, but she held on to it, according to the report. The victim said Godbolt asked for the knife back because it was his mother’s and told her he was trying to scare her, but wouldn’t hurt her.

The victim said Godbolt took her back to where she works and she got out and he drove away, according to the report.
