JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Police arrested a man this week after he allegedly kicked his ex-girlfriend's door in early Sunday morning to search for her cell phone.
Charleston Police Department officers responded to a burglary call just before 5 a.m. Sunday in the 1800 block of Central Park Road on James Island.
According to the report, 38-year-old Tyrone Lamar Council kicked in her door and then punched a large hole in the living room wall. The victim told police she and her two small children were hiding in the bedroom when he also kicked in that door.
The victim said Council then started searching around the house looking for her cell phone while he yelled profanities at her. At that time, the victim went to a neighbor's house to call police. When she returned, he was gone, the report states.
The victim said a few days earlier Council had seen her outside of her building and told her, "I'm going to kill you, (expletive)." She told officers Council constantly calls her even though she has told him to stop.
Council was arrested Wednesday afternoon and charged with first-degree burglary.
