HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Five people were arrested after a home invasion and sexual assault occurred off Highway 366 in the Conway section of Horry County on Saturday, according to a police report from the Horry County Police Department.

Harley Dale Blackburn, age 21, of Conway, is charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping and first degree burglary, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

April Lewis Haithcock, age 34, of Loris, is charged with kidnapping and first degree burglary, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

Allard Donald Grainger, age 31, of Loris, is charged with kidnapping and first degree burglary, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

Angela Dale Blackburn, age 38, of Conway, is charged with kidnapping and first degree burglary, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

Tyler Gene Blackburn, age 19, of Conway, is charged with being an accessory after the fact to felony a,b, c or murder, according to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

Officers with the HCPD, responded to a 911 hang-up call on October 17 off Highway 366 in Conway but were unable to make contact with anyone at the residence. Officers then received another call from the victims stating they had been involved in a home invasion and left and went to Longs because they feared for their safety.

After officers responded to the location in Longs, one of the victims said one of the suspects came to their residence and was allowed in. The victim stated three suspects came in behind the first suspect with masks on and assaulted the two victims.

According to a warrant for Harley Dale Blackburn’s arrest, Harley Blackburn entered the victim’s residence without consent and “with the intent to commit aggravated sexual battery against the victim by forcing the victim to pull down her pants and forcibly penetrating her vagina with his fingers.”

One of the victims told the officers they were able to identify the masked suspects because one of them was a cousin, one of them was the cousin’s mother and one they knew their entire life.

On October 18, officers responded to Shannon Lane in Loris to try to locate the suspects. Officers had warrants for all five suspects and took them into custody.
