Ninety Six man facing multitude of charges

A Ninety Six man is facing a number of charges after police say he sexually assaulted a minor then assaulted two other women while he held them against their will and forced them to make him something to eat.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, police were dispatched to a home on Watts Bridge Road in Ninety Six at about 11 a.m. on Aug. 27 after receiving a report of a sexual assault. Police spoke with the victim, a minor, who told police that Robert Elvin Miller Jr., sexually assaulted her the previous night. According to the report, sexual assaults occurred in the shower and again in a bedroom.

According to the report, the victim told police that Miller told her she had two options: keep the assault a secret and he would continue assaulting her once a month or let him know if she was going to tell on him. The victim told police that she was so scared she did not say anything at the time. The victim notified her mother the following morning.

According to the report, police attempted to contact Miller by telephone, but were unable to reach him. They went to his place of employment, but were informed that he had left at about lunch time that day. Police then went to his home and noticed heavy smoke inside the house. Police found a frying pan on the stove with tiki torch fuel in it and the stove eye on high. Police also found a plastic jug of tiki torch fuel and an oil lantern near the stove. Miller was not at the residence. Police obtained a search warrant for the residence and confiscated a number of firearms, computers and media drives from the home. Police also found a small amount of marijuana at the home.

According to the report, Miller turned himself in to police on Thursday. Prior to his bond hearing Thursday, police were approached by a woman about another incident involving Miller on Aug. 30. The woman told police that Miller had physically assaulted her and her 79-year-old mother. The woman said that she was at her mother’s house just outside the door when Miller appeared and shoved her through the door, knocking her to the floor. The woman told police that when she looked up, Miller was standing over with a handgun. The woman said Miller demanded her cell phone and her mother’s cell phone. The woman told police that Miller then ordered the two women to fix him something to eat.

According to the report, the woman told police that Miller told the women that he had been living in the woods since the first incident and had not had anything to eat. The woman said that Miller told the women he was on medication that made him do things he would not normally do and broke into tears. The woman said Miller eventually settled down and left the residence.

Miller is charged with one count of second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, two counts of kidnapping, one count of first degree assault and battery and one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

I completely agree with the previous comment. How dare you? Put all of this extra heartache on a CHILD that has already been through enough. Any mother, father or family member would agree that the details in this passage are too in depth. Evidentally the writer of this article doesnt have a young child, or this wouldnt have been posted.... not like this. This makes me think differently about this so called "community newspaper"...
My prayers go out to the family an especially the little girl involved.

To Mr. Smith, I was a victim of molestation as a child for 3 yrs. I WOULD TELL every detail of it to any one , it doesn't make that girls life any worse for it to be known. People especially innocent children need to know how these creeps work their so called plans out to molest and abuse helpless people. She will need to be strong to not let this ruin the rest of her life. So be disgusted all you want to be. Facts are facts, covering the dirt he has done hurts not only this girl and makes it appear to be normal for men to do such things.Walk in those shoes and you will know what is disgusting for real....!

My comment is in regard to the article about Robby Miller. How can you post so much detail about an action happening to a minor? This girls life is already destroyed and now her friends and others will know every detail. This truly a despicable way to get readers.
Articles like this keep kids from telling when things happen to avoid humiliation. I am honestly disgusted.
