GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities have arrested five people suspected of breaking into a home and attacking a man in Georgetown County.
Investigators arrested 25-year-old Denzel Lernard Moyd, 26-year-old Derrick Lakeith Moyd, Jr., 21-year-old Dewey Robert Donnelly, 20-year-old Bobby Eugene Miller and 23-year-old Presley Shawn Mitchum.
Georgetown County Sheriff's deputies spotted the suspects' vehicle and initiated a stop Tuesday night. Deputies say the individuals in the vehicle matched the description of the home invasion suspects with evidence in the vehicle matching items that were taken from the home.
The arrests stem from a Tuesday night incident at a home on Yadkin Avenue in the McDonald community.
According to investigators, five suspects wearing stocking caps and bandanas knocked on the door, and when the victim answered the door, two suspects pushed the victim into the home and demanded money.
Deputies say the suspects were armed with what appeared to be handguns and blunt weapons. An incident report states that one victim was assaulted with a blunt object that was described by the victim as a stick. Another victim was able to escape out of a window and call 911.
Deputies were able to locate the suspects' vehicle shortly afterward and arrest the suspects.
The suspects were locked up at the Georgetown County Detention Center.
