DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Dorchester County Sheriff's Office has charged a 30-year-old man for breaking into a house and tying up a woman during a home invasion in Harleyville.

Investigators arrested Terek Goodwin at the Ashley Lodge Hotel on Tuesday and charged him with first-degree burglary.

Goodwin's arrest stems from an incident on Dec. 9 when deputies responded to a home invasion in Harleyville.

In that incident, Goodwin allegedly entered the victim's home shortly after the victim's husband left for work.

According to investigators, Goodwin pointed a gun at the victim and told her to give him the money in the home.

Authorities say once the victim gave the money to the suspect, Goodwin tied her up while he left the home with the money.

The sheriff's office is continuing the investigation.
