Domestic violence suspect arrested after manhunt in Conway area

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – A suspect wanted for domestic violence was apprehended Tuesday afternoon after leading Conway and Horry County authorities on a manhunt.

According to information from Conway Police Lt. Selena Small, Horry County police were called in to assist in locating a wanted person at an address off S.C. 65.

When Horry County police arrived, the suspect reportedly fled into the woods. A perimeter was set up by county and Conway police, and the person was eventually arrested near Pottz Trail in Conway, according to Small.

Durrell Antonio Herion, 29, of Conway, was charged with first-degree domestic violence and simple larceny under $2,000, and was booked at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

The police report states that pushed the victim against the wall after she told him she didn't want to be with him anymore.

When running Herion's criminal history, it was noted that he had been previously convicted of criminal domestic violence in 2012, which enhanced his current charge to first-degree domestic violence.
