Man tries to carjack woman, break into police official’s car

Posted: Updated:

A Lowcountry man was arrested after, according to police, he tried to carjack a woman and break into a car belonging to a police official.

According to an incident report from the Moncks Corner Police Department, the victim was at a local car wash when she saw an unknown male standing at the front of her car. That man, later identified as 25-year-old Tysheem Lamar Gavin of Pineville, walked to the passenger side of her truck, and opened the door. 

After getting Gavin to close the door, he chased the victim across the street to a Sunoco gas station screaming and cursing at her.  He eventually starts beating on the driver side window of her truck and then runs toward Wal-Mart, the report explains.

It was at the Wal-Mart where Gavin tried to break into the truck of the police chief of Bonneau.  The report further states that while officials were with the first victim, Bonneau's Police Chief watched as someone matching the description of Gavin try to break into his truck in the Wal-Mart parking lot.

He was detained until Moncks Corner officials arrived.

The report states that officers were able to smell alcohol on Gavin's breath and he was sweating profusely. "We believe he was on something beside alcohol", the officers stated in the incident report.

Gavin was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
