LORIS, SC (WBTW) – Horry County Police say two men have been arrested for a recent home invasion in Loris.

Thursday, both suspects were in custody at the Horry County Detention Center.

The police report says the burglary happened on at a home on Highway 701 North in Loris. The victim told police she had just returned home after collecting $360 in rent money when she noticed a shadow outside on the carport. When she went to the storm door, she saw a male in dark clothes trying to get inside the home.

The report states that one of the men “told her to tell her husband he had a nice wife and they would be watching her.” The suspects told her she had to sit in a chair in the kitchen for five minutes and not move before they left.

Dominique Hemingway will be charged with armed robbery and kidnapping.
