The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A Ladson man claimed he was tied up and robbed by five suspects, according to a report.
The victim said one subject went outside to grab a blunt and when he came back inside two armed subjects also came in and tied him up using a cord, put a sheet over his head and duct taped it. The suspects stole $300 cash, a 46-inch TV, an Xbox, a $700 Bulova watch and a pit bull puppy.
The subjects left the house and once the victim knew they were gone he broke the cords and freed himself. The victim then left the residence and returned a short time later. The victim also told officers he’d smoked marijuana before the suspects arrived. The victim said there were possible suspect fingerprints on a beer can, which also contain his fingerprints.
• A male and female suspect apparently assaulted a 45-year-old Moncks Corner woman on a recent night. The complainant said as she was leaving her residence on South Live Oak Drive, the suspects pulled up in a white SUV whose owner she knows. She said a male and female got out of the vehicle, threw gravel and dirt at her, hit her in the face and kicked her in the head.
The suspects then got back in the vehicle and fled on 17-A heading toward Moncks Corner. The deputy noticed a scratch on the victim’s cheek, a cut on her knuckle and dirt on her pants. The victim knew the first names of the suspects and said she’d been in a dispute with the owner of the SUV. She said she received threatening texts from an unknown number, which she suspects is the female who assaulted her. The victim refused EMS but said she would take herself to the hospital.
