Cops: Sword-Wielding Man Breaks Into South Carolina Home
LONGS, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say three men, including one carrying a sword, tried to rob a home in Horry County.
Police say it happened early Tuesday in the community of Longs, northwest of North Myrtle Beach.
Police say three men forced their way into a home. The other men were armed with a shotgun and a handgun.
A resident of the house struggled with the men and was hit in the back of the head. The three drove off in a pickup truck after an exchange of gunfire with another resident of the house.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the bandits took anything.
