Be careful on the trail

Runners and walkers on the Sawmill Branch Trail need to stay alert as incident reports with the Summerville Police Department indicate a number of incidents of suspicious activity and persons on the trail.

On Jan. 13, SPD received a report of suspicious persons. A woman on the trail around 1:30 p.m. noticed several men standing on the walking trail. When she approached they did not move off the path and she had to jog around them.

Freezer break-in … again

This Whole House on East Doty once again had an attempted break-in of its freezer Jan. 17. However, unlike the last time, the perpetrators were unable to gain access to the porch. The owner had installed chicken wire around the freezer area of the porch and although someone tried to punch through the wire, they were unsuccessful.

The bulbs from the floodlights had been removed and smashed in the roadway. The owner thinks the break-ins are being done by bar patrons and requested extra patrols from Summerville Police.

Domestic violence injures two

Dorchester County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a concerned citizen’s call to Haven Oaks on Orangeburg Rd. for an active fight between a male and female. When they arrived the female had an injured ankle, bruising and swelling around the eye and bruises on her leg. She was crying and saying she didn’t want the man to go to jail. EMS responded but she refused treatment.

However the male, who was found hiding under the bed, was transported to Trident for complications from a prior medical condition and complaining of hip and head pain from being assaulted by the woman. He was charged with Criminal Domestic Violence. He was admitted to Trident for dialysis for his medical condition.
