A woman told Horry County police Tuesday she feared for her life after men at her home threatened to cut off her head.
The woman and a person with her became fearful for their lives because, as they told police, everyone at the residence comes from a culture in which decapitation is a common occurrence.
Officers were called about 5 p.m. Tuesday to a Conway area home in regards to a rape complaint that involved several men allegedly making threats with a knife to the victim and another person, police said.
Authorities noted a large group of men and women were in the home, but no one could be identified as a victim or 911 caller, the report states.
After clearing the call, police received information that the victim and another person were at the Conway Wal-Mart.
An officer traveled there and met with the victim and other person involved. The victim told police that a man in her home made advances to her the night before and fondled her until she pushed him off of her, according to the report.
She said she called police that evening because when she and another person arrived home, a suspect and other men there made threats about cutting of their heads.
Police said the victim declined to cooperate and only wanted help moving to another home until the suspect and others were removed from the residence.
The victim and other with her were given an escort to get belongings. The victim was offered assistance, but didn’t want to prosecute, the report states.
