MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A woman told police that a man broke into her hotel room while she was sleeping and sexually assaulted her, according to an arrest warrant.

Police were called early Monday morning to the Sea Dunes Ocean Front on Ocean Boulevard for a possible sexual assault.

The accuser said her room was locked before she went to bed and she believed that her boyfriend was the only one with another key.

An arrest warrant stated that the accuser woke up and realized that the suspect was sexually assaulting her.

Police arrested and charged 48-year-old Roger Strothoff with first-degree criminal sexual conduct and burglary.
