Report: Teen tells ex-girlfriend to cut apology into her arm with knife
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) -
A 16-year-old boy in Myrtle Beach may face charges after his ex-girlfriend told police he told her to cut an apology into her arm and tried to make her eat sticks.
At around 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, a Horry County Police officer responded to a home on Carolina Farms Boulevard in Myrtle Beach, where the 16-year-old victim's mother told police she feared for her daughter's safety.
She said her daughter walked from the Farm subdivision to Avalon to apologize to her ex-boyfriend in order for him to stop bothering her.
The daughter told police that while walking down a path earlier that day, her ex-boyfriend got in front of her and would not let her leave. She says he grabbed her neck and tried to cut her hair with a Swiss Army Knife, and then stabbed her with the corkscrew.
The report states the boy then handed her the knife with the blade out and told her to cut her apology into her skin. The girl said after she refused, the suspect stole her glasses. Authorities say the boy then agreed to trade her glasses for his knife, and when she got her glasses back, she ran to a public area and dropped the knife.
The victim said at one point during the incident, the boy grabbed her hair and tried to make her eat small wooden sticks from the ground.
The police report says officers tried to reach the boy to follow-up on their investigation.
