On Nov. 12, Manning Police officers responded to Dickson Street in reference to an attempted break-in. A 25-year-old Manning woman told officers she was inside her apartment with her five small children when she heard a loud banging on the door and two voices yelling profanities and asking, “Where is he?” and “Give me the flat screen. It’s mine.” She told officers she heard the door being kicked or hit with a large object and she called the police. When the banging stopped, she told officers she ran into the window and saw two individuals she knew by name getting into a grayish silver Jaguar.
Officers reported seeing the apartment’s door partially kicked in, the frame broken, the bottom lock broken and the top dead lock partially broken.
Sgt. J.W. Jenkinson with the Clarendon County Sheriff’s Office told the Manning officers he saw a car fitting that description turn onto Walker Street in a reckless manner.
Manning officers responded to Walker Street and detained one subject and transported him back to Dickson Street for identification. EMS was also called to treat the man for a cut over his left eye.
Jonathan Cody Newman, 18, was placed under arrest and charged with burglary. He was transported to the Clarendon County Detention Center.
