Update: Police have one suspect in custody, names released
Pawleys Island Police Chief Guy Osborne says they have warrants for Dyshan Malik William Frasier,19, and Nequan Gerell Brown,17, both of Pawleys Island. The two are suspects in a kidnapping case from Wednesday morning.
Frasier is in custody of the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office, and officers are still searching for Brown.
Police say around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday, a mother and her 19-year-old son were kidnapped from their Pawleys Island home on Myrtle Avenue by two teens armed with guns.
Georgetown County dispatchers received the 9-1-1 call from a friend of the woman who was kidnapped. The friend was on the phone with the woman and heard her scream "they have a gun," as she and her son were being ordered into a truck.
Officers called the mother's cell phone and she pretended to be talking to her sister. She told police they were in the suspects' truck in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart in Georgetown.
Officers converged on the parking lot and say the suspects took off in the truck with the victims still inside.
The driver began driving away, disregarding a red light and turning left onto North Frasier Street, according to a police report. The deputy who witnessed this attempted a traffic stop, but the driver sped away, reaching speeds of 85 mph.
The report goes on to say the chase continued into the West End of Georgetown until the driver hit a mailbox on Sims Street. The driver then got control back, and sped on hitting speeds of 65 mph and hitting a sign on Sims Street.
He kept driving until reaching Levy Alley where he ran through a wire fence and hit a mound of dirt causing the truck to lose control once again.
Police chased the car until it wrecked by crashing into a home on North Frasier Street.
The deputy's patrol car also hit the mound of dirt and was damaged. The deputy saw the two suspects run off and could not locate them. The mother and her son were treated for minor injuries and released.
The son identified the two suspects, according to a Georgetown County Sheriff's Office's police report. When asked about how well the son and suspects know each other, Osborne said they were still investigating.
