A Union man is accused of assaulting a woman while she was a patient at Wallace Thomson Hospital.
Lewis Richard Lloyd Jr., 21, of 209 East Henrietta St., was charged Tuesday by the Union Public Safety Department with assault and battery and malicious damage to property. He was released from the Union County Jail after posting 10 percent of bonds totaling $1,638.
The 19-year-old victim told Cpl. Dell Mitchell that she was in the bathroom of her room at Wallace Thomson Hospital when Lloyd came in and hit her in the head and face. She said he then broke her phone into many pieces.
The report said Mitchell noted and took pictures of swollen places on the victim’s face.
The attack was witnessed by a patient in the room with the victim.
Lloyd had already left when Mitchell arrived.
The victim in the case was discharged from the hospital Tuesday.
High school reports
At Union County High School, two theft reports were made Tuesday.
A 14-year-old boy told Cpl. Jerome Beatty, school resource officer, that someone took his Altell phone from his belongings. The theft occurred sometime between Jan. 23 and Tuesday.
Also, a man told Officer Al Griffin that his son parked his vehicle near the running track field at the high school and when he came back a short time later, someone had taken $19, clothing and 30 CDs worth $420. The vehicle had been left unlocked.
Robert Edward Oxendine, 45, of 121 Beverly Lane, Lyman, was charged Tuesday by the Union County Sheriff’s Office with possession of stolen goods.
According to a report, Oxendine was arrested in connection with the recovery of stolen property in Union County on Sept. 30.
Deputy Randy Manus, acting on information from a Spartanburg County detective, went to Herbert Hunt Camp on Herbert Road in Carlisle and checked for a camper that had been reported stolen in Spartanburg County.
Manus found the camper. Witnesses said they saw Oxendine bring the camper to the site and set it up.
A warrant signed by Lt. Kenneth Riddle said the 2003 Coleman pop-up camper was worth $11,500 and was stolen on Sept. 25.
