Myrtle Beach police issue warrants for Conway man in assault

Myrtle Beach police issued warrants for a Conway man suspected of assaulting his estranged wife and a man outside a business, according to a police report.

The 27-year-old woman told police she was leaving her place of business at 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1700 block of North Oak Street with a 34-year-old man when her estranged husband drove up and blocked her vehicle in the parking lot, police said.

Warrants were issued for 33-year-old Jonathan Chance on charges of criminal domestic violence, third-degree assault and battery and petty larceny, according to the report.

The woman said Chance argued about her being with the other man and pushed the man into some bushes and caused him to hit his head on a brick wall, according to the report. The woman said Chance then grabbed her, took her keys and hit her in the mouth.

The woman said Chance left in his vehicle and returned shortly and threw her vehicle key at her, but kept the rest of her keys, according to the report. The man suffered cuts to his arm, but refused medical attention.

Police tried unsuccessfully to reach Chance via cell phone to get his side of the story before the warrants were requested, according to the report.
