Georgetown County Man Facing Kidnapping Charges

A man from Georgetown County is facing charges after locking a woman inside a bedroom, pushing her down some stairs and punching her. Deputies say they plan to charge Kenneth Mariner Jr. with kidnapping and resisting arrest. An incident report from the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office states that the victim invited Mariner to a home on Chapel Creek Road and told deputies that while he was there she noticed on his phone that he had been talking to another woman and asked him to leave. That’s when the incident happened. Mariner tried to run away from deputies when they arrived but they were able to take him into custody.
