Man arrested after allegedly assaulting woman at gas station

GREENWOOD, SC – A Greenville man is in custody after he reportedly assaulted a woman in the bathroom at the Hickory Point gas station on Hwy 25 N.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to the Hickory Point after receiving two calls about an assault in progress at the gas station at about 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.

While en route, dispatch advised the deputies that the suspect, later identified as Jeffrey Jack Sullivan, 27, of 30 Cain St. in Greenville, and the victim along with a baby left the store and were heading north on Hwy 25.

According to the report, a deputy observed a vehicle matching the one they were looking for and initiated a traffic stop. Sullivan did not roll down his window and was speaking to the victim, who was in the back seat with the baby.

After the deputy knocked on the window, Sullivan rolled down the window and was asked to step from the vehicle after the deputy observed the victim’s eye to be swollen and lip to be busted along with fresh scratches on her head and neck.

The report states that, when Sullivan stepped from the vehicle, he appeared to be “grossly intoxicated.” The deputy informed Sullivan that he was under arrest for public disorderly conduct and began trying to handcuff him. Sullivan pulled and leaned into the car, telling the victim, “Don’t [expletive] say anything.” Sullivan did not comply with commands to stop resisting, but the deputy was able to handcuff the suspect.

According to the report, the victim told police that Sullivan had punched her in the eye, lip and head and dragged her across the floor of the Hickory point by her hair. Multiple witnesses told police that the victim was in the bathroom with the baby when Sullivan began beating on the door and yelling at her. When the victim opened the door, Sullivan punched her and then entered the bathroom and closed the door, according to the report.

The report states that Sullivan emerged from the bathroom with the baby, telling the victim, “This is my son.” Sullivan then went outside and got into the car. The victim came out of the bathroom and asked if anyone called the police then said, “He has my baby,” and got in the car with Sullivan.

The victim told deputies that Sullivan was not the father of the child and that he was aware that he was not the father of the child, according to the report.

Sullivan has been charged with public disorderly conduct, criminal domestic violence, resisting arrest and kidnapping. His bond was set at $57,000 cash or surety. He is currently being held at the Greenwood County Detention Center.

Well in a situation like this, they should have called 911. Its more than 2 who works in there at a time. Their noisy @@@@@ be looking out the window trying to see if someone gonna purchase cigarettes and alcohol for people who forget their ids.They see what they wanna see. If it was a white woman who he was beating, they would've called!!!

The media boosts things up to more than what it really is, of course he shouldn't have hit her but if he was really intoxicated then they would have charged him with dui as well....he prolly wasn't drunk,

Well said Kent & Chris.. I will add that I doubt that pepper spray or anything else by us 'layperson's' that's not trained on how to handle a 'grossly intoxicated' person would have accomplished anything other than putting the victims, other customers and/or the one(s) trying to intervene in harms way. A person that intoxicated (expecially if more than alcohol is involved) probably won't feel a thing and anyone trying to 'help' would only have pissed him off and make matters so much worse. The way the employees handled it, it was text book correct in my opinion. The end results prove that. Good Job!!

To everyone that has imput to what should have been done ,let me explain. The people that work at Hickory Point are all friends of mine and I visit the store on a regular basis. As for the cigs and hotdog stuffing, that's uncalled for. If you visit the store much you'll notice these employees rarely have time to look up. It is a very busy place. I've spoken with several employees that were there when the incident took place and they were still visibly shaken. It all happened so quick, luckily no employees were hurt or over reacted. I'm a CWP carrying citizen and realize you don't pull it unless you are going to use it. The employees did the right thing by calling 911. The law did the rigjht thing by locating this animal and placing him in jail. Never let your mouth overload you butt. Having practiced martial arts for years and carrying heat, I realize it's easy to cause matters to get worse by trying to be a hero. Again, my hat is off to the employees for how things were handled. I'm sure they don't get paid well enough to subject themselves to every problem that arises in that store. Therefore, let's all be thankful it was no worse than it was. To all my Buds @ Hickory Point be careful,
