Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office
A Faglier Road man has been charged with domestic violence after he allegedly shoved his wife face-first into a wall on Thursday, breaking her glasses.
Deputies responded to the distressed wife’s call for help at 12:21 a.m. She alleged that her husband had attacked her.
The woman told deputies that when she arrived home Wednesday night, her husband wanted to have sex with her but she refused because their children were still awake.
She said her husband became angry with her and pushed her into the wall in the living room. When she grabbed her cellphone to call the OCSO, her husband took it away, telling her that she wasn’t going to call anyone, the woman said.
When she attempted to leave the residence, her husband shoved her face-first into the wall, breaking her glasses and causing a bruise to her right eye, the complainant said.
The woman’s children saw the altercation and tried to use their mother’s phone to call authorities, but her husband ran toward them, the incident report states.
Ultimately, the woman escaped through the front door and ran to a neighbor’s house for assistance.
One of the children was able to reach their maternal grandmother, who then arrived on the scene.
The complainant's husband was locked inside the couple’s home when deputies arrived, and his mother convinced him to exit the residence.
The man said he was sorry for pushing his wife, and he began to cry, the report states.
He told deputies he hadn't taken his medication on Wednesday and that’s why he “flipped out.”
Deputies charged him with domestic violence and transported him to the Orangeburg County Detention Center.
In an unrelated report, deputies responded to a call from the owner of Anything on Wheels, located at 1863 Five Chop Road, at 9:27 a.m. on Wednesday.
The owner reported his 2009 Infiniti coupe and attached car trailer were missing from the lot.
The responding deputy placed the vehicle’s VIN number in a national database of reported stolen vehicles.
Dispatchers notified the deputy that the S.C. Highway Patrol had located the vehicle and trailer on Highway 52 in Moncks Corner in Berkeley County.
A local towing company towed the vehicle to their lot.
The vehicle and trailer are valued at $18,000.
