Sheriff’s Office

A male patient at the Regional Medical Center allegedly went into another patient’s room and assaulted her around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The female patient said the male patient entered her room and called her name. She told him that he wasn’t allowed to be in her room.

The male patient then closed the door, she said.

The female patient said she got up and attempted to leave, but the male patient allegedly grabbed her.

“Other patients came in and freed her. The staff then came in and restored order,” the incident report states.

A deputy reviewed surveillance video of the incident and took the male patient into custody. He’s facing a charge of third-degree assault and battery.

Deputies transported him to the Orangeburg County Detention Center.
