A 911 hang-up call led to the discovery of two injured people at an Orangeburg home, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.
Deputies responded to a call from an Alva Street residence at 1:23 a.m. Sunday.
They found a bloodied man who stated that a woman was treating his injuries. He claimed to have been injured at work.
The man had lacerations under his left eye, left index finger and shoulder.
When deputies asked him where the woman went, he told them that she took a walk before deputies arrived, the report said.
The man then went inside the residence and deputies saw a woman standing in a room.
“She attempted to hide but as we called her several times to come to the front door, she began walking slowly with what appeared to be a limp,” a deputy wrote in the report.
Deputies then noticed she had a piece of clothing wrapped around her head and a swollen hand.
She told deputies that she and her boyfriend were drinking alcohol when they got into a fight, the report said.
When EMS arrived on the scene, the woman allegedly told deputies that the man assaulted her with a baseball bat.
When medics unwrapped the clothing from her head, they noticed a contusion with what appeared to be fresh blood on top of her head and a swollen shoulder.
She didn’t provide any further details about how she became injured.
The man told deputies that he was the one who took the bat from the woman and that was the end of their argument.
“He was unable to tell this deputy how she got her injuries,” the report states.
Deputies learned that a judge ordered the man to have no contact with the woman and that a no trespassing order was in place.
The woman stated that she invited the man to her home, the report said.
Deputies charged the man with third-degree domestic violence.
