An ar­gu­ment over pay­ing for scrap metal led to a man be­ing struck with a crow­bar, caus­ing him to suf­fer arm frac­tures at a Lit­tle River auto shop Thurs­day af­ter­noon, an Horry County po­lice re­port states.

Of­fi­cers went to Xtreme Auto Sales, at 2610 East Hwy. 9, about 5 p.m. after re­ports of an as­sault. The vic­tim told po­lice a sus­pect was al­legedly upset about not get­ting money for scrap metal. The sus­pect struck the vic­tim with a crow­bar while the vic­tim was open­ing the door at the busi­ness, the re­port states.

The sus­pect al­legedly tried to hit the 37-year-old vic­tim a sec­ond time, but the vic­tim was able to catch the crow­bar, au­thor­i­ties said.

He then pushed the vic­tim to the ground and stole money from the vic­tim’s pocket, the re­port states. Horry County po­lice redacted the amount of money stolen from the po­lice re­port.

Po­lice said the vic­tim fled the area in fear of be­ing as­saulted again. When the vic­tim re­turned, he no­ticed a 2003 White Chevro­let Ta­hoe with a South Carolina li­cense plate was miss­ing, the re­port states. The vic­tim said the sus­pect took the keys and pa­per­work for the ve­hi­cle, po­lice said.

A set of tools was also miss­ing from the busi­ness, the re­port states.

EMS re­sponded to the scene to treat the vic­tim, who suf­fered from two frac­tures on his arm, au­thor­i­ties said.

No ar­rests have been made in the case. The in­ci­dent re­port lists the sus­pect as a 30-year-old man, but does not give any fur­ther de­scrip­tion.
