A 20-year-old Orangeburg woman is accused of hitting her ex-boyfriend and damaging his vehicles with bricks.
Makaila Somone Peoples, of 610 Bennett Street, is facing charges of trespassing after warning, malicious injury to personal property valued at $2,000 but less than $10,000 and third-degree domestic violence
According to an incident report, a Summers Avenue man reported at 8:38 a.m. Tuesday that he wanted to place Peoples on a trespass notice.
When police spoke with Peoples, she asked them to place her ex-boyfriend on a trespass notice for her residential address.
At 9:12 a.m., Peoples allegedly returned to her ex-boyfriend’s property.
Officers reported seeing Peoples’ Honda sedan attempting to leave the scene. They initiated at traffic stop.
Peoples allegedly exited the Honda, walked toward her ex-boyfriend “and began to yell and hit him,” the report states.
An officer detained her and placed her in handcuffs.
Officers claim Peoples then kicked her ex-boyfriend in his groin, continued to yell and curse and said she was going to kill him.
They also claim Peoples used bricks to damage a Dodge Charger and GMC truck.
Peoples faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a court fine, if she’s convicted.
