On November 4, 2018 the Greenwood County Sheriff arrested a man after he broke into a home, beat a victim with a pistol, tied him up and ended up stealing his vehicle.

Wesley Hunter Clinkscales, 31 of Ninety Six was arrested and charged with kidnapping, assault and battery, burglary, grand larceny and possession of a weapon during commission of a crime.

According to the police report, Clinkscales went into a home on Pinelake Drive, Greenwood and hit the victim in the face with a pistol as he was sleeping.  The victim said Clinkscales was demanding the location of a pistol.
