CONWAY, SC -

A former Conway Policeman has been charged with criminal domestic violence for the second time in 2 ½ years, officials say.

Sandroy John Edwards, age 35, of Conway was arrested Wednesday after an April 20 incident with a woman he has been in a relationship with for 15 years, SLED said in a press release on Wednesday.

Edwards was also charged back in Nov. 2012 with criminal domestic violence when authorities say a woman was bleeding after being hit during a Nov. 29 incident.

Sometime after that incident, Edwards lost his job with the Conway Police.

In the most recent incident, officials said in a warrant that the victim “received injuries to her head and other parts of her body.”

A witness told authorities that Edwards pushed the victim to the ground during the incident, the arrest warrant says.

Edwards also made “ a verbal comment indicating that he was not afraid to use further physical violence” against the victim, the witness said in the warrant.

Conway Police requested that SLED investigate the April incident. The 15th Circuit Solicitor’s Office will prosecute the allegations.

In the incident back in 2012, Edwards was an officer at the time.

According to the incident report, Officer Kenneth Mossi responded to a report of domestic violence at a home on Highway 813 on November 29, 2012. Edwards of Conway was later booked at J. Reuben Long Detention Center.

Dispatch informed Officer Mossi that the victim said Edwards was abusing and hitting her. The incident report goes on to say the victim said she was bleeding.

The report states when Officer Mossi arrived Edwards smelled of alcohol and was standing outside the home. Police say Edwards told them he and the victim were in an argument.

The victim said Edwards was upset with her after getting in an car accident the day before.

Police say they found a large hole in the wall and red liquid consistent with blood in the home.

He was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence.

According to the J. Reuben Long Detention Center website, Sandroy John Edwards of Conway was booked at 2:05am on November 29.
