At your own risk
Summerville Police responded to Montreaux Bar and Grill Feb. 14 at 1 a.m. for a robbery. Two men were assaulted and robbed on the bar’s back patio by three males who had fled the scene by the time police arrived. However, all three were identified by patrons and bar employees. Video surveillance documented the assault.
Police found one man lying on the ground with his face covered in blood and the other appearing delirious and stating he could not remember anything. The conscious man had a gash on his head and a split lip. The man on the ground had multiple lacerations on his face, ears and head. Both men refused transport with EMS to the hospital.
The three men were identified as regulars at the bar. The video showed them jumping the two men and then robbing them.
The men were identified as William Wesley Cliff, 24, of Summerville, Keyon (last name and address unknown) – a black male, 6 foot, 185 pounds, in his twenties, with dreadlocks and brown eyes and Quinton (last name and address unknown), in his twenties, black male, 5-foot, eight-inches, 150 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
The incident is under investigation.
Don’t trust without badge
Two people were approached Feb. 11, around 9 p.m., in Target by a man claiming to be a police officer. He flashed a “badge” but neither person was able to see it. He asked for their driver’s licenses and he photographed the licenses using his phone. When they asked to see his badge he refused to show it to them. He told them he needed the license information to mail them a ticket for spinning their tires when they exited Dick’s.
When the victim’s asked for the man’s name he swore at them.
They exited the store and called Summerville Police. While they waited for police, the man approached them again and accused them of harassing his wife and told them “I suggest you get in your truck and leave before I make you.” Again they asked for his badge and he refused and then left the scene headed toward Kohl’s. The man was driving a black Ford Ranger with a black tool box in the bed.
