A man impersonating a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputy allegedly handcuffed a Camden woman and told her take off her clothes.

The Camden woman said she heard a knock on the door and when she went to answer it, a man shined a flashlight in her face and told her that she needed to open the door because he was with the sheriff’s office. After the woman let the man in, he allegedly handcuffed her and locked her dog in one of the bedrooms.

The man allegedly told the woman to take off her clothes, but she said she couldn’t because she was handcuffed. She reportedly told him that if he unlocked the handcuffs, she would take off her clothes.

When the man took the handcuffs off the woman, she hit him in the face and ran to let her dog out. The woman’s dog attacked the man while she ran to a neighbor’s house. The woman identified the man to real deputies, according to the incident report, but no arrests have been made.  

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Sept 31 - Oct. 6:

The KCSO arrested four men -- two 23-year-olds, a 21-year-old and a 19-year-old -- after catching them breaking into some Lugoff apartments. Someone called the KCSO reporting four males trying to break into apartments on Boulware Road. The responding officer arrived to find three “suspicious” males surrounding the door of an apartment. The subjects started running and the responding officer ran after them when a fourth subject ran from the apartment. Another deputy apprehended the fourth man. Deputies cleared two apartments. One was empty, the other had a TV on the floor that had been removed from a TV table.  

A juvenile said he was approached by a masked man at a church on Longtown Road, Lugoff, who presented a gun. The juvenile said the man had a black ski mask, gray sweater and pants. The boy said the male subject told him to “Come here,” but that he got scared and ran back into the church building.  A teacher accompanied the boy to the same spot, but there was no one in the area. The boy’s mother told deputies that the man allegedly had what looked like a “big pistol with some sort of red light.”

The KCSO reported several thefts in Cassatt. In one incident, someone stole a copper vase, cross and flag, together worth about $500, from a grave on Holland Road. In the second report, someone stole various kitchen and home appliances from a home on Shepard Court. In the third case, someone stole into a home on James West Road and stole a gun and $20 cash.

Someone stole approximately $25,000 in coins in addition to various tools, antiques and dolls from a home on Louise Road, Lugoff.

A 17-year-old Lugoff boy allegedly hit another boy from Lugoff in the face and stole his skateboard.

County deputies also assisted other agencies, served bench warrants and dealt with 13 five simple assaults; six larcenies; three vandalisms, non-violent family offenses and harassments; two runaways, public disorderly conducts and burglaries; and one theft of motor vehicle parts, swindle, incorrigible, resisting arrest, robbery, DUS, death and theft from motor vehicle.


An 18-year-old allegedly assaulted and robbed a pair of teenage girls.

According to a Camden Police Department (CPD) report, the girls -- ages 15 and 16 -- said they were in a car with the man and two of his male friends, who took them to Camden. Once they arrived on King Street, the man reportedly told the two girls to get out of the car. The girls said the Camden man wouldn’t take them where they wanted to go in Camden, so they told the man they were leaving.

That’s when the man allegedly grabbed one of the girls, threw her down to the ground and against a fence and took two cell phones from her. She asked for the phones back, but the man allegedly took a tree branch and hit her head and back.

At that point, the girls reportedly ran to police and reported the incident.

The CPD reported the following other incidents during the period of Sept. 31 - Oct. 6:

A 77-year-old woman said she was scammed out of $18,000 by someone claiming to represent the Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes.

An Irmo woman, who may be “mentally disturbed,” told a CPD officer than she had been sexually assaulted by a Camden man.

Someone stole a TV, a box of cigars and a carton of cigarettes from a Camden laundromat.

Camden officers also assisted other agencies, served bench warrants and dealt with three DUIs; two public disorderly conducts and simple possessions of marijuana; and one theft from motor vehicle, breach of trust, trespassing, shoplifting, vandalism, runaway, drunkenness and communicating threats.
