GALIVANTS FERRY, SC (WMBF) – Horry County Police have arrested a 17-year-old from Galivants Ferry for alleged sexual conduct with a 4-year-old victim.

Police responded to a rape complaint at the Conway Police Department that allegedly occurred in Galivants Ferry, according to the HCPD report. Brian Sweeley was arrested and charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 11.

The woman who reported the crime said that the victim told her that Sweeley made the victim perform a lewd sexual act on him and take a shower afterwards. The victim would not speak to the responding officer because Sweeley threatened him not to tell the police, the complainant said.

Investigators took the victim to a nearby emergency room for a possible swab collection of DNA, and HCPD detectives took over the investigation.

Sweeley was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center Thursday night and remains incarcerated.
