A man injured in a home invasion on Salt Pond Road in Lugoff near Ridgeway spent several days unable to move before being discovered by a neighbor.

According to an Aug. 23 Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) report, the home invasion took place Aug. 19. A deputy responded to a hospital emergency room to speak with the victim, who reported he was beaten by two Hispanic men who entered the home uninvited. The man said he struck one of his attackers with a pistol and he stopped the assault, but the other suspect hit him with a hammer until he passed out. The victim said the men took two handguns from the home.

The man said he was unable to move for several days after the attack until a family member asked a neighbor to check on him.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Aug. 22-30:

A Camden said a male suspect pointed a gun at him in Lee County and said shots were fired when he and the suspect crossed into Kershaw County. The victim reported the incident to the KCSO and Lee County Sheriff’s Office, saying he was at a gas station in Lee County when the suspect cocked a pistol and pointed it at him. The victim said he left the store and the suspect followed him into Kershaw County where he heard six shots, but admitted he didn’t know if they were aimed at him.
