ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) - Investigators are on the lookout for a 34-year-old burglary suspect who reportedly told his victim that he would have killed her if not for her kids being present.

The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office is on the lookout for Kishon Chappelle Govan.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said the incident happened at a home on Nugget Drive on Sunday at 5 a.m. According to Ravenell, Govan reached through an open window on the back door of the home and opened the door.

An incident report states Govan then pointed a gun at a 25-year-old mother and said,"I should kill you...You better be glad your kids are here."

Govan then left the home.

"We do believe that Govan is a threat to his victim and others based on the incident Sunday morning," Ravenell said."Govan, if you are reading this turn yourself in because we will find you!"

Anyone with information is asked to call (803) 534-3550 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
