Suspect Search - 01/31/2019

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - An argument over cleaning the house ends with allegations of serious violence against one man and police say a second suspect is charged with stealing from a former neighbor. Let’s see if you can help authorities find them.

We begin with 27-year-old Alexandre Osteguin. Horry County Police responded to a home in Conway regarding a domestic violence incident.

The victim told officers she and Osteguin were arguing over cleaning the house, that’s when she says Osteguin grabbed her by the neck and slammed her to the ground. She says he hit her on the left side of her face and strangled her until she couldn’t breathe.

The victim says he then kicked her in the back of the legs and took her cell phone so she wouldn’t call 911.

Officers with HCPD said the victim had a swollen and bruised cheek and a scratched neck. Osteguin is charged with second degree domestic violence.

Next up is 44-year-old Shane Michael Kelly. Last July, Myrtle Beach Police officers were dispatched to 810 South Yaupon Drive in reference to a burglary.

The victim says she left the residence in the morning and returned in the afternoon. She knew she locked the door when she left but wasn’t sure if it was locked when she returned.

She also noticed her jewelry box, it’s contents and her change jar were missing along with her laptop.

In the main room of her home, several items were knocked over. That victim said the suspect, Kelly, lived in the front apartment but had recently moved out and both apartments were keyed alike.

Kelly is charged with failure to appear for burglary in the second degree.
