An Horry County grand jury indicted a Conway woman a charge of attempted murder after police said in May that a 19-year-old woman was choked until she blacked out during an argument about a stolen cellphone, according to authorities.
Antia Isom, 23, of Conway is indicted on the charge, according to court records released this week.
The teen told Conway police on May 7 that she tracked her stolen cellphone to 1303 Grainger Road and she went to visit a friend to talk about the incident, according to the report. The victim said she was sitting in her vehicle when Isom came out and returned her phone to her. She said Isom then yelled at her to call the police to tell them she had the phone back so she wouldn’t get in trouble.
The victim said she questioned Isom about the phone being erased and a man came out and yelled that she had stolen money from him and the victim was lucky he didn’t kill her, according to the report. The victim said Isom then yelled at her, reached into the vehicle and choked her.
The victim said she blacked out and waited in the vehicle until she felt comfortable to drive, but several women came up and tried to get into her vehicle because the man told the women he would give them $100 to beat up the victim, according to the report. The victim said she was able to get away and called police. The victim was treated at Conway Medical Center.
