MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man accused of forcing his way into a person’s residence and holding the victim at gunpoint while demanding money is behind bars on a list of charges.

The Myrtle Beach Police Department’s website states Collin Taylor Beck, 22, was arrested Wednesday around 9 p.m. He is charged with kidnapping, burglary and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Police announced they were searching for the armed and dangerous suspect Tuesday night.

According to information on the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s Facebook page, officers responded to an apartment Tuesday morning in the 600 block of 37th Avenue North in reference to the home invasion.

A victim heard what she thought was glass breaking down stairs. When she went to the top of the stairs, she saw Beck at the bottom of the stairs with a gun in his hand, wearing a red cover over his face. The victim described the gun as a semi-auto black pistol.

Beck then walked up the stairs to the victim’s bedroom and pointed a gun at her, according to the report. He told her, “Shut up or I’ll kill you.” His face cover dropped while giving the command, revealing his face. Then he asked, “Where is Thomas’ money.”

The suspect searched the victim’s room, the spare room, and asked where the money was for the second time, the report states.

Beck grabbed the victim’s phone, hand bag, and headed towards the stairs.

The report states the victim exited her bedroom window, walked on the roof to her neighbor’s window, and jumped in.

As of early Thursday morning, Beck was being held without bond.
