Four Arrested In Sex Abuse Case Of Two 4-Year-Olds


Four people were arrested in South Carolina on sexual assault charges against two 4-year-old children.

Horry County Police detectives learned about the sexual assault on Jan. 25, WMBF reported. They conducted forensic interviews on the two 4-year-old victims, a boy and a girl.

Both victims told authorities that Lindsey D. Honeycutt, 29, and Ambrose E. Heavener, 30, forced them to have sex with their siblings and with each other, according to a police report.

The children said Honeycutt and Heavener would also have sex with them and that the girl was forced to have sex with a third suspect, 55-year-old Panteleimon N. Spirakis. A fourth suspect, Anthony L. Strickland, 45, was also reportedly involved.

The four suspects engaged in sex acts with the children between December 2014 and April 2015, according to their arrest warrants. The alleged assaults occurred in several locations, including Chez Joey, a Myrtle Beach strip club where Honeycutt worked as a dancer.
