Loris man charged with kidnapping and attempted murder

Posted: Updated:
CONWAY, SC - Back in January, Horry County Police responded to a call for an armed robbery at Hatchel and Sons Scrap Yard on Privetts Rd. in Conway.

The victim told police he buys scrap cars for Hatchel and Sons and it's not unusual to receive phone calls from random people through out the county who are selling their junk cars.

Someone called him saying he had two vehicles to sell and agreed to sell them both for $500.00. The victim was given an address on Bluemoon Drive.

Once there, he went into a wooded area away from the road. The Victim told police the suspect put him in a choke hold and placed a gun to his head and threatened to kill him. Three people in all reportedly had guns and threatened to kill the victim if he didn't give up the money. The victim told them the money was in his truck, where his girlfriend was waiting for him.

The suspects reportedly grabbed her and and duct taped the victims hands behind their backs and robbed them of their jewelry, phones, and money. The police report states the suspects fired one round into the ground next to them as they left.

The victim said he was afraid the suspects would kill them and that's why they didn't report the crime immediately.

The victim contacted his cell phone provider and they gave him the number which called his phone earlier to arrange the meeting. Then he found the suspect on Facebook and identified the person to police.  Quartis Hemingway, 17, of Loris is charged with attempted murder, robbery, kidnapping and drug charges.
