North Charleston man accused of stalking estranged wife

Charleston police on Friday jailed a North Charleston man accused of breaking into his estranged wife’s home.

Rhashalm Crowell, 30 of Spruill Avenue, is charged with stalking and violating a protection order, police said.

A 35-year-old woman called police on July 11 to complain about her husband, Crowell, breaking a window to get inside her home, an incident report states.

The woman told police that Crowell may have had a gun on him.

Police officers arrived at the home shortly before 10:30 p.m. and found the woman and her children locked inside a bedroom on the home’s second floor, according to the report.

Crowell was no longer at the scene, police said.

The woman previously placed an order of protection against her husband due to his violent tendencies toward her and the children, police said.

Crowell was held at the Charleston County jail in lieu of a$50,000 bail, jail records show.
