Suspect punches man in wheelchair

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A man is facing charges for the reported assault of a disabled man in a public Myrtle Beach park.

A 62-year-old man bound to wheelchair reported to Myrtle Beach Police that he was punched in the face by a black male known as "Pooch" while he was in Plyler Park Monday evening.

The victim gave a good description of the man who was believed to work at a nearby restaurant, but the incident report did not indicate why the victim or police thought he would have punched him.

The suspect, 31-year-old Jon Winn, was arrested two days later and charged with assault and battery.
