Not quite what happened…
A Summerville man who worked as a pizza delivery driver reported that he had just made a delivery to an apartment near Marymeade Drive and Angus Lane in Summerville when he was robbed at gunpoint.
The man said he had made his delivery and was headed toward the Berlin G. Myers Parkway when all of a sudden a brown Chevrolet Trailblazer pulled behind him, then a dark sedan pulled in front of him and stopped. He said the driver of the Trailblazer, an unknown black male, got out of the vehicle, a silver pistol in his hand, and yelled for the driver to, “Give me your money, m----F-----a!”
The subject then opened the driver’s side door and pulled the complainant out of his car. The complainant said he then gave the subject $52.67 and the subjects then all fled the area toward the Berlin G. Myers Parkway.
The complainant described the subject with the gun as a black male about 5 feet 9” tall and weighing about 220 pounds, wearing brown corduroy pants and a black hooded sweatshirt. The complainant also noted that the subject had an extremely large and “funny looking” nose.
Officers canvassed the area for the suspect vehicle, described as a light brown Trailblazer with very dark tinted windows, but never made contact. Further investigation revealed that the complainant was given the wrong address initially to deliver a pizza but that nothing seemed out of the ordinary once he found the right address.
Further investigation revealed that the report the complainant gave police was untrue and he will be charged with filing a false police report.
Not sure what happened…
A Summerville man reported that he answered his door at about 2:30 one morning to find an unknown female subject ringing the bell. According to the complainant, the female seemed extremely disoriented and kept asking for another woman. The man told her the person she was looking for was not there and she started crying, so he and his wife let her in to calm down and they called the police.
Officers arrived and tried to talk to her; she said she was lost and trying to find her friend and she wanted to get home to her children. She said she did take medications and had a bad headache.
Officers asked her how many children she had and she said three, but kept giving four different names for them. EMS arrived and transported her to Trident Hospital.
Officers later spoke to two male subjects, one of whom is the father of the woman’s children, who told them they and the woman were at a bar earlier drinking. They also noted she is taking medication for stomach and brain cancer and should not be drinking at all. They said when they tried to leave the bar the woman got out of control and became incoherent and combative. They tried to calm her down but she ran away from the house and although they looked for her around the neighborhood they could not find her.
