LADSON, SC (WCSC) - Authorities are looking for a Ladson man they say beat and threatened to kill his girlfriend at their home earlier this week.

Chester Feagin Jr., 38, is wanted by the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office for criminal domestic violence. The Hanahan Police Department is also looking for Feagin after he allegedly made death threats to the victim and her family.

Deputies say the incident happened around 6 p.m. Monday at a residence on Instructor Court in the Eagle Run subdivision.

According to the incident report, Feagin became angry with the victim after she removed the cable box from their bedroom and placed it in another room. The report states the victim tried to call 911 when Feagin became visibly enraged and punched a door, but before she could finish dialing he said, "You crossed me for the last time," and punched her in the face.

Feagin then punched the television before leaving the scene, the report states. The suspect, also wanted by The SC Probation and Parole, has not been seen since.

If you have any information regarding Feagin's whereabouts, call the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office at (843) 832-0300 or the Hanahan Police Department at (843) 747-5711.
