The following incidents were obtained from Goose Creek Police Department and Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office reports:
• A Goose Creek man was watching TV when he saw a gold, four-door sedan park in front of the house on Pointer Drive in the Quail Hill subdivision. He said a female exited the driver’s side and knocked on the front door.
The complainant did not answer and turned off the TV. He recognized the female subject as someone his younger brother went to high school with but did not associate with her. She went back to the car and a black male and black female exited the vehicle and walked to the back of the residence. The complainant said he heard the subjects say no one was home.
One of the subjects kicked in the back door, which opened on the second kick. The complainant, who works as a security guard, was armed with an expandable baton and confronted the subjects as they were entering the residence. The subjects fled on foot to the same vehicle that was in the driveway earlier and was now waiting at the intersection of Pointer Drive and Eather Drive.
The complainant chased the subjects but was unable to catch up. The subjects fled. A short time after an officer arrived the complainant’s brother arrived and was able to give the names of the subjects based on his brother’s descriptions.
• A Ladson man was confronted by a Goose Creek man on Craven Road June 3 when the subject exited his truck and accused him of stealing his stun gun. The victim advised he was at work and had nothing to do with stealing anything. The subject then allegedly struck the victim in the face twice with a closed fist and got back in his truck and left the area. The victim said his brother witnessed the assault.
• A Summit Avenue woman reported three of her lawn statues were stolen between May 24 and May 31. The statues are concrete and about two feet tall, painted white and green. One was a male figurine and the other two were female figurines. The victim values the statues at $300.
• A Charleston woman changed the mood of a party on Redbank Road in the early morning hours of June 1 when she called police after she said her phone was stolen at the party. The victim said she stood up to take a photo of her friends and set the phone down on a chair behind her.
When she turned around the phone was gone. She questioned friends at the party who all denied taking it. After she and friends searched the area she decided to file a report.
