A man was arrested Sunday after an altercation at a gas station at the intersection of 21st Avenue North and Robert Grissom Parkway in Myrtle Beach.
Bernard Brown Shakim, 23, was arrested after allegedly slapping and throwing things at two women, according to a Myrtle Beach police report.
A 26-year-old woman was taking out the trash at the gas station when she said she saw Shakim sitting in a parked vehicle in the back of the parking lot and told him to leave “because they had problems with him in the past,” according to the report.
Instead Shakim allegedly tried to punch and push the woman before slapping her in the face, according to the report.
Shakim then headed inside the gas station towards a second victim; a 27-year-old woman whom Shakim used to date, according to the report.
Shakim “grabbed something and threw it” at the 27-year-old woman inside the gas station before lunging at her and causing her to cut her hand, according to the report.
Shakim then left the area in a car belonging to the 27-year-old according to the report. The car was later found abandoned on Broadway Street with two flat tires.
Police later found him walking along Kings Highway, and arrested him.
He was charged with two counts of assault and battery.
