Hanahan police say they misidentified a man who they said escaped after leading officers on a chase Monday.
Police on Tuesday said they were searching for a 29-year-old man and then later identified a 40-year-old suspect.
Lt. Michael Fowler said Wednesday morning they’re getting conflicting stories from the victim in the criminal domestic call that led to the chase and at this moment aren’t absolutely sure who they’re looking for.
Police responded to a home on Old Point Road shortly before 5 p.m. on Monday in response to a domestic dispute, Fowler said.
A man fled the scene in a dark-blue Ford Crown Victoria and refused to stop for police, Fowler said.
The man tossed cocaine out a window and hit a minivan as he fled, police said. He forced an officer to drive into a yard in a nearby neighborhood to avoid getting hit, Fowler said
The man got on Interstate 26 at Remount Road and headed toward Charleston, police said.
He stopped on Maple Street, got out of the vehicle and evaded officers by running between some houses, according to witnesses.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
