Blue Light Special | Watch where you ‘get together’

Hey You, Stop

Myrtle Beach police are investigating an assault report. On Dec. 5 around 1 p.m., police were called to the intersection of 21st Avenue North and Robert Grissom Parkway.

Upon arrival, officers found a pregnant woman crying. The woman told police that she was walking home near that intersection when a man attacked her, according to the police report. Which, you’re a lower kind of low if you attack a pregnant woman. In December. Well, any month really, I guess it would be just as bad in June as December, but either way.

She also told police that she is eight months pregnant. Side note, I’ve heard walking long distances while eight months pregnant is really a good thing to do.

The victim said that the suspect yelled “Hey you, stop!” She then stopped and the suspect knocked her to the ground and attempted to pull her pants off.

According to the report, the man then presented a pocket knife and the victim was able to kick him in the groin and run away.

The victim was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment. Hospital staff told police the baby is doing fine.

The victim describes the suspect as a black male in his late 30s or early 40s, clean shaven, about 6’3” and 190 pounds. Refers to people as “You.”

Get Together, Get Shot

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, in cooperation with Horry County police, are offering a $5,000 reward to anyone with information about a Conway shooting last month.

Officers responded to 1321 Colletta Court in Conway on November 24 in response to a shooting around 10 p.m., according to a police report. Two witnesses told police four people – two women and two men – were shot while sitting in a living room.

The victims and several others were having a “get together” at the home before the shooting, the report said. It’s a sad world when “get togethers” are no longer safe. Several people left the party and the two witnesses walked into a back bedroom when they heard several gunshots, police said.

Blue Light Special is a roundup of the Myrtle Beach area’s weird and wild crime, written with a saracastic and/or humorous twist. It is meant as a parody. Don’t take it too seriously; we don’t.
