HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - On this week's edition of "Horry County's Most Wanted," WMBF News' Theo Hayes profiles two more criminals wanted by the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

William Alex Causey, 23, is wanted for assault and battery by a mob. The police report describes how he and the brother of the victim allegedly beat him nearly unconscious. It all started over a round of beer at the victim's home in Conway.

According to the report, the conversation turned to a woman that the victim and one of the suspects slept with. That led to a fight in the front yard, which started off playfully at first, the report states, but took a turn when Causey and the victim's brother started to punch him in the mouth, and kick him in the throat and head.

Causey and the other suspect fled the scene, and the victim was taken to Grand Strand Regional to treat a concussion, officials stated. He will also have to see a surgeon for an injury to his eye.

Sheriff's deputies are also looking for 37-year-old Juan Rodriguez, who police said broke into a Centex model home on Esher Court in Carolina Forest.

He tampered with an office and stole two flat-screen computer monitors, according to police. Police processed the scene and found two key pieces of evidence: two small drops of blood. That's how they determined Rodriguez' identity.

Authorities say if you're the victim of a crime, no matter how small, always call for help.

"It's very important for people who are victimized, even if they think it's minor - could be something that we show up with different eyes and see that evidence," said Sgt. Jeff Benton with the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

Since "Horry County's Most Wanted started back in January, six suspects have been taken off the streets, many thanks to tips from our viewers.
