Myrtle Beach police were called by three women after they said a man used his vehicle to intentionally hit theirs several times, according to a police report.

The victims, ages 30, 22 and 24, told officers that about 2:20 a.m. Sunday the incident happened in the area of 21st Avenue South and Yaupon Drive, police said.

The victims said they had met the man at his hotel room at Compass Cove earlier in the night and then went to a bar, according to the report. The victims left the bar in the 22-year-old woman’s car and went to the hotel parking lot to get the 30-year-old woman’s car.

As they were driving back to the hotel, the victims said the man pulled up next to them in his green Jaguar, began to insult the victims and then rammed their vehicle three or four times with his car, according to the report. Officers noted the driver’s side rear bumper was damaged.

The 30-year-old woman told officers it was the first time she had met the man in person, but she had spoken to him on the telephone for a few days, according to the report. Officers called the man on his cellphone, but the man refused to meet with officers or provide them with information.

The woman refused treatment by EMS and detectives are investigating the incident.
