SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -Thirty three year old Michael Press is wanted on a charge of Criminal Domestic Violence for a December, 2008 attack on his spouse. "One of these situations where they were arguing about money, went steadily downhill and it was a violent encounter," said Summerville Police Capt. Jon Rogers.
Cops say Press threw his wife around and slammed her head on the bathtub. Capt. Rogers said the victim was terrified. "Oh of course. She was manhandled, very bad in a situation that was just over some money and it's inexcusable." Investigators say the beating happened in front of the victim's three young children and that she had to go to the hospital to be treated for a sprained neck.
Press is no stranger when it comes to dealing with police. "He's got a criminal history that dates back to 1999. He's got multiple arrests," said Capt. Rogers. "We're getting word that he's probably still in the area, but we just don't know where."
Michael Press stands 5'8" and weighs 160 pounds. His last known address was on Ladson Road. If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111. You can remain anonymous and may earn a cash reward.
