MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) A Conway man is behind bars facing weapons law violations nearly two weeks after police say he pointed a gun at his girlfriend's father.

An arrest report obtained from Myrtle Beach Police says 21-year-old Ivan Karim Sherman of Conway was arrested Saturday morning for pointing and presenting firearms at a person.

The incident report states the Sherman went to the victim's house to pick up his girlfriends son on April 11. Reports from witnesses and the victim indicate the father did not want Sherman in his home and asked him to leave, at which point Sherman retrieved a black in color handgun from the trunk of his car which he tucked inside his waistband.

Returning the victim's front door, Sherman pulled out the gun. One witness says he held the gun at his side, but the victim says Sherman pointed that at him.

According to the report, Sherman fled the scene on foot in the direction of a nearby gas station, but not before removing the license tags on his vehicle.

Two of the witnesses to the incident took Sherman's car and picked him up at that gas station.

The report did not mention any injuries.
