Victim claims frying pan attackers emerged from shadows

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Police are searching for answers after a man claims he was attacked by two people lurking in the darkness of his living room when he came home.

This aggravated assault was reported just minutes before midnight Thursday on the 5600 block of North Kings Highway. The victim told Myrtle Beach Police his front door was unlocked when he returned home and the light in his living room wouldn't turn on.

Those circumstances would be suspicious enough on their own, but the police report continues to state that the man noticed a "dark shadow" pacing on the opposite side of the room that suddenly began charging toward him.

The man from the shadows then tackled the victim, fighting with him and pinning him to the floor when another figure emerged and began hitting him on the head with a frying pan, the report states.

Though under attack, the victim says he heard the man perched on top of him commanding the other suspect to "hit him harder."

That's when the police report says the victim took action, grabbing a glass bottle and swinging at his alleged attackers.

He recalls losing control of his defensive weapon and seeing one of the suspects running out of the door with the bottle, but then turning around and throwing the glass bottle back at his head. That's when the victim called police, and looked around to see that nothing was taken from his home.

The police report describes the suspects as a black male and a white female, both believed to have been wearing black pants and a black shirt at the time. This incident remains under investigation.
