A 19-year-old Lugoff woman pressed charges against a 19-year-old Elgin man after she claimed he tried to “force himself on her.”

According to a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) report, the woman’s husband found her in bed with the man, who is the husband’s friend. The husband and the Elgin man told deputies, however, that they had set the whole thing up because the husband thought his wife was cheating on him. The Elgin man had allegedly been texting the husband throughout the ordeal and told him when to come to the house.

The Elgin man had previously told the woman’s husband that she was trying “to get with him, so they devised a plan to catch her.”

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of April 16-24:

A Cassatt man was found unconscious on the floor of his home after reportedly fighting with his brother. When the ambulance arrived to help the wounded, unconscious man, he tried to hit one of the EMS personnel and spit on him. The man’s brother tried to resist arrest. Both men were described as being intoxicated.

A Cassatt man reportedly forced his son out of a house belonging to the boy’s friend. As they were leaving, the victim said his father pushed his head into a metal door frame near his left eye, injuring him.
