NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

North Charleston police say a 24-year-old man has been arrested after kicking in the door of a woman's home while wielding a gun early Thursday morning. 

Police were called to a home on Carlton Street around 12:34 a.m. in reference to a disturbance. Officers arrived to find the front door of the home open with the door jam on the floor in pieces. 

The victim told police the suspect, 23-year-old Tyrus Goodwater, knocked on her door a few times while telling her to open the door. After persistent knocking, the suspect kicked in the door yelling "where is he" while presenting a firearm. 

An incident report states the victim ran out of the home and down Spruill Avenue screaming for help. A witness picked her up and took her to a nearby market to call police. 

According to the victim, she previously had a physical altercation with Goodwater on February 15 while at a nightclub, and feared for her life. Officers could see a bruise under the victim's left eye, bruises on her left forearm, and a bite mark on her right arm. 

Goodwater was located by Mt. Pleasant police and arrested. He is charged with criminal domestic violence high and aggravated nature and burglary.

His bond was set at $10,000.
