Man arrested after allegedly threatening to kill girlfriend

A Greenwood man was arrested after police say he assaulted his girlfriend and her 16-year-old son throughout Saturday night and Sunday morning.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to 2606 Old Hwy. 246 S. lot 10 just before 10 a.m. Sunday morning. When deputies arrived, the victim told them that her boyfriend, identified as Ricky Lee Givens, 38, had pulled a gun on her and assaulted her son earlier in the morning. The victim told deputies that Givens had come home drunk on Saturday night and started arguing with her while throwing things around the house. The victim told deputies that her 16-year-old son told Givens to calm down and acted like he was going to hit him before the victim got in between them. At that point, the victim said, Givens made them both sit on the couch while he yelled and cursed at them.

According to the report, the victim’s son went to bed at some point, but Givens continued to pace the house throughout the night. The victim said that Givens took her phone and car keys and would not let her leave. The victim said she was awakened on Sunday morning by the sound of Givens yelling and cursing again. The victim told Givens that she and her son were leaving. The victim said that Givens then produced a handgun, put in a clip and told her that he would kill her and her son if she tried to leave. The victim said that Givens told her he would kill everyone if she called 911, including the police. The victim was able to get to a phone and call her sister. The victim’s sister came to the house and took the victim and her son back to her house.

According to the report, Givens left the house in the victim’s car. Deputies found him at the house later in the day on Sunday. Deputies were unable to locate the gun in the house or in the car.

Givens has been charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, third degree assault and battery and pointing and presenting a firearm at a person.
