Man beaten, robbed; suspects captured

By Tracey Amick  bio | email

HEMINGWAY, SC (WCSC) - Adele Rodriguez has lived in his home in Pleasant Hill in Hemingway for about seven years. He says he's never had any trouble until Tuesday night.

Rodriguez heard a knock on the door and someone call out his nickname, "Pops," so he opened the door, only to be struck in the head with a  gun, blindfolded and left on the floor in a pool of blood.

The assailants also tied his hands behind his back. He thinks he lost consciousness and spent the next 30 minutes passed out on the floor. And while he couldn't see, he could hear them looking through his home

"People checking all through, and me on floor," Rodriguez said.

After they left, he freed himself and went to a neighbor's for help.

Sheriff Lane Cribb says officers responded around 8:30 Tuesday night. "They went out, set up a perimeter and while there a car ran through the perimeter, they jumped out and run," Cribb said.

Deputies say four suspects took off running and bloodhounds tracked one underneath a mobile home.  The other three were hiding in an abandoned home. One of them had bags of drugs.

"We think we got them, we just want to make sure," Cribb said.

The four suspects have been charged with hindering and obstructing justice for now and more charges could come later. They face a bond court judge Thursday.
