Woman found in MYR parking lot, accuses man of criminal sexual conduct

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A Myrtle Beach man was arrested and charged over the weekend with criminal sexual conduct after the alleged victim was found in the parking lot of the Myrtle Beach International Airport.

Shane Wesley Cook, 26, was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center a few minutes after 12 a.m., Saturday on a charge of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to information from the Horry County Sheriff's Office's website.

He was released later that day on a $10,000 bond.

According to a Horry County Police Department incident report, the woman was in the MYR parking lot at 4 p.m., on Friday. When police arrived, she alleged that she was "raped" at a home in Socastee community.

The victim said she had been out drinking with the suspect and eventually was taken back to his residence, where the alleged criminal sexual conduct occurred.

At one point, she said she wanted to leave and go home, and the suspect did not keep her from leaving, the report said. When the woman started to walk across the street, he reportedly stopped her and put her in his truck and they left.

The woman told police she was, "yelling and screaming," and finally got the suspect to stop the truck, at which point she got out and wound up in the airport parking lot.
