Teens charged in parking lot beating


LORIS, SC (WWAY) -- An update to a story you saw only on three Friday: two teenagers are in custody for allegedly beating an elderly woman outside a hospital.

Rose Powell, 73, said three young men attacked her as she walked to her car in front of Loris Community Hospital in South Carolina Wednesday night. They also stole her car.

Friday police picked up a 15-year-old boy, who's name has not been released. Today they arrested 17-year-old Travis Jones, charging him with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and strong armed robbery.

Both are expected in court tomorrow.

Powell and her husband used to run the thrift store in Tabor City.
