Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office

An Orangeburg woman alleges her boyfriend hit her in the face, pulled her hair, pointed a gun on her twice and fired a gun, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

The woman said the incident occurred on Monday after she took her boyfriend to her father’s residence to wash. She then took him to his friend’s home.

After they left, her boyfriend accused her of being unfaithful with his friend, she said.

She told her boyfriend that she was not cheating on him with his friend.

Once they arrived at her residence, they began to watch television and her boyfriend allegedly hit her on the left side of her face and then pulled her hair.

She told deputies that she yelled and told him to stop, but he continued to hit her.

Her boyfriend then pulled a .40-caliber gun on her twice, she said.

The couple went outside where the boyfriend allegedly continued to hit her.

She told deputies that the father of her boyfriend’s sister’s child asked her boyfriend if everything was OK.

She said that’s when her boyfriend began to open fire. She retreated to her apartment and feared for her life.

A deputy noticed minor bruising on the left side of the woman’s face.

The woman and her children stayed with family members for the night.
