Report: Woman threatened with crowbar after refusing sex

Officers arrested a Chapin man after he threatened a woman with a crowbar, sheriff’s deputies say.

According to a Lexington County Sheriff’s Department incident report, on July 8, officers responded to Sandbar Road in Chapin for a civil dispute involving a weapon.

Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the 51-year-old victim who said 48-year-old Samuel Sroufe threatened her twice with a crowbar after she refused sexual advancements from Sroufe, the report stated.

According to the report, the first incident occurred while the victim was in the kitchen. The woman said when he looked out the window he saw Sroufe waving a crowbar and displaying a slashing motion across his throat, indicating that he was going to kill the 51-year-old woman, the report stated.

Deputies say a short time later, the victim went outside to sit on the porch and Sroufe came around the corner charging at her with the crowbar.

The victim told officers at this point she was afraid for her life, so she got up and began running around a table that was outside, keeping distance between her and Sroufe, the report stated.

While fleeing from Sroufe, the victim was able to contact law enforcement.

Deputies say before they arrived Sroufe dropped the crowbar and fled the area on foot.

After a search of the surrounding area, officers were able to locate Sroufe attempting to hide in a neighbor’s yard, the report stated.

Deputies say Sroufe was grossly intoxicated. Sroufe was arrested on charges of second-degree assault and battery and public disorderly conduct.

Notice the difference, Tenessa? Notice how the story is now all about the criminal and not the sex/gender of the victim? Notice that there is far less room to blame the victim as well? The whole incident could have been written while respecting the victim's identity yet you chose not to. Was this your editor's fault or was it your idea?

How about you check this out?- http://www.glaad.org/reference/

It's very black and white! You did a very good job of saying it the first time! It is a man trying to be a woman. People need to know the truth!

I'd say what's black and white is the fact that you are an ignoramus who is dumb enough to use their computer to illustrate their egregious lack rather than use it to learn something.

Tell me, Does a "man trying to be a woman" ever succede? Is a woman, who has a hysterectomy, still a woman? Is a woman past menopause, still a woman? Must a woman be capable of reproduction to be a "woman"? Can a intersex person, surgically corrected to be female, a woman? Or male for that matter? So how is it? Is gender mutable in your opinion?
