Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office

A Cordova woman said she cut her neighbor when he tried to assault her, according to a Sheriff’s Office incident report.

A Riley Road woman told deputies that on Sept. 25, a 25-year-old man came onto her property drunk. He was throwing beer on the victim’s residence, yelling and cursing, she said.

The woman said she told the man to leave but he refused, pulling on her to leave with him. When she refused, he became enraged. She retrieved a knife because she believed the subject was about to attack her.

When he tried to grab her again, she slashed his arm with the knife, the report said.

Deputies searched for the man by following the large amount of blood leading from the victim’s property to the man’s residence.

At that property, deputies entered the home because of their concern the man had lost a lot of blood. But the trail of blood went out of the house and led to a neighbor’s residence. The subject wasn’t there either.

Several residents told the officers the man had a shotgun.

He was finally located at another neighbor’s property. He was taken down to the ground after he refused to surrender.

“The suspect continued with his negative, unflattering remarks toward both units,” the report states. “The suspect then had some facts presented by this unit at which time he decided to comply and calm down.”

He was taken to the hospital where he had stitches put in to close his wound. Deputies did note that “after the subject’s liquid courage wore down, he did apologize and admitted he has an attitude problem.”

He was charged with disorderly conduct at the time of the incident.

On Monday, he was charged with a probation violation.

Police are looking for a man who’s reportedly scamming businesses with a bill exchange flim-flam.

The first up was McDonald’s at the Prince of Orange Mall. Around 9 a.m. Saturday, a man walked in and used a $10 bill to pay for his order. When he received his change, he told the clerk he gave her a $20 bill. She gave him the extra $10.

A few hours later, a male of similar description was in Reid’s where he used a more elaborate means of scamming a clerk. For several minutes, he asked to receive change for multiple $50 bills.

In the end, the clerk was short $360.

The McDonald’s manager told police the store had multiple problems with the same guy using money changing schemes. She had filed several reports on him.

    going to come back and shoot my daughter. So OCSD thanks again for not doing your job.I think that when they are taking statements from the victim and witnesses it needs to be recorded so maybe they will get the facts.That would be the only way to get the real true statement from the OCSD.

    released from jail. My daughter was told by one of the deputies the next day that she needs to get a gun and learn how to shoot it because she sure doesn't know how to us a knife. Great job OCSD why don't you just tell everyone that so you can have more crime in Orangeburg. My daughter went to the Sheriffs office the next day to file charges againest this man for assaulting her and they are refusing to. They left out that while the man had a gun he was texting one of the witnesses that he was

    OCSD doesn't know how to state the facts. Apparently they were more concerned with this mans cursing at them than the fact that he assaulted my daughter. This man came to her house and assaulted her and was trying to get inside the house where her two young children were. She defended herself after he threw her down and after he punched her. Now they(OCSD or the magistrate) refuse to press charges of assault on this man. Now my daughter is in fear of her and her childrens safety when this man is
