CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The four suspects arrested earlier this year after two 4-year-old children told police they were sexually assaulted at multiple locations in Horry County over five months have been indicted by a grand jury on a number of charges.

According to court records, the indictments were filed with the Horry County Clerk of Courts on Oct. 21.

The four suspects in this case are indicted on the following charges:

  • Lindsey D. Honeycutt, 29, of Myrtle Beach, is charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the first degree, first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, engaging a child for sexual performance and incest.
  • Ambrose E. Heavener, 31, of Conway, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, engaging a child for sexual performance and incest.
  • Panteleimon N. Spirakis, 55, of Myrtle Beach, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and engaging a child for sexual performance.
  • Anthony L. Strickland, 40, of Myrtle Beach, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and engaging a child for sexual performance.

All four were arrested in March following a January investigation into the allegations.

Between December 2014 and April 2015, Honeycutt, Heavener, Spirakis and Strickland allegedly engaged in sex acts, including intercourse, with the two victims, their arrest warrants state.

The victims told investigators one of the locations of the alleged sexual assaults was “the dance club,” which was later identified as Chez Joey, the former strip club on Seaboard Street, where Honeycutt worked as a dancer, according to the victims.
