of Public Safety

An Orangeburg man is accused of choking the mother of his son and throwing a toddler from a bedroom in December 2019, according to an ODPS incident report and warrants.

Najee Oliver, 25, 1477 Vonoshen Drive, is charged with first-degree domestic violence and third-degree assault and battery.

Police allege he attacked the woman after she asked him about a noticeable injury on their 6-month-old son's nose. The couple's son and two toddlers were allegedly present at the time.

Oliver was also accused of grabbing a 3-year-old by the arm and throwing him out of a bedroom.

He was taken into custody Thursday after he was pulled over by the ODPS and a background check showed he had outstanding warrants.

If convinced on the first-degree domestic violence charge, Oliver could be imprisoned for up to ten years.

In a separate incident, a Malibu Drive woman reported someone broke into her apartment Wednesday night.
