According to the arrest report, a Loris woman was home with her two infant children on March 8 when she reportedly saw two men coming two men approaching.

The woman said one of the suspects wanted to, “buy something,” which she believed to mean drugs, the report stated. When the alleged victim said there was nothing for them to buy, the door to her home was reportedly kicked in.

She was allegedly punched in the cheek, while one of the two reportedly pointed an assault rifle at her 9-month-old child’s head and said that she needed to start talking or he was going to start shooting.

The woman reportedly denied that there were any drugs or money in the home. Eventually, the two men left carrying a duffel bag, which she told police only contained parts to a bed frame, the report stated.

Police were told that the two men reportedly went to high school with the alleged victim.
