MBPD: Victim fights off attacker with wooden pole

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach Police have made an arrest after piecing together the details surrounding a violent encounter between two women.

The police officer that responded to reported burglary on Dunbar Street Tuesday morning found 30-year-old Selena Rochelle Johnson forcing entry to the house using a chair from the porch.

According to the police report, Johnson successfully broke through two front windows and the glass front door.

The victim, who lives in the home, told police Johnson had come over uninvited and forced her way in, grabbing her by the hair and punching her in the face.

Struggling for freedom, the victim admits she hit Johnson twice in the face with a long wooden pole, and a neighbor helped her force her alleged attacker out of the house.

Police found a large pool of blood in the victim's living room during their investigation.

When police tried to take Johnson into custody, she became combative and tried to kick the police officers. She was eventually placed in a transport van and taken to a local hospital to treat the laceration on her head.

Selena Johnson was charged with burglary and resisting arrest. It's unknown what caused this altercation.
