ROCK HILL –
A Chester man is accused of throwing a bowling ball at a woman’s head Sunday in Rock Hill after she refused to let him buy her drinks, authorities say.
Omar Sheree Stevenson, 31, has been charged with attempted murder and is awaiting $100,000 bond at Moss Justice Center in York.
Deputies were called Sunday to Strikers Family Sports Center, 124 N. Anderson Road, and found a 28-year-old woman on the floor next to the snack bar, bleeding from the forehead, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
Deputies could see her skull through the cut, and EMS treated her before taking her to Piedmont Medical Center.
The woman told police she and a man had been arguing because she wouldn’t let him buy her drinks, the report states. When it was his turn to bowl, the man picked up a 12-pound ball and flung it at her head while she was sitting down.
Witnesses told deputies they saw Stevenson pick up the ball and throw it at the woman before he left the bowling alley.
Rock Hill Police officers arrested Stevenson in the area of Saluda Street and Midvale Avenue, the report states. He told officers he had lost his temper and hit the woman in the head with the bowling ball.
He said he regretted the incident and asked how the woman was doing.
The woman was treated with seven stitches and released from the hospital.
