This past Monday, just before 2 a.m. at Señor Frog’s (located at Broadway at the Beach) four security officers were assaulted during a ‘large fight’, according to the Myrtle Beach Police Department.
Broadway at the Beach is a privately held entertainment complex. Police are not allowed to patrol the facility unless specifically called by officials from the property. Burroughs and Chapin, the property’s owner, hires it’s own private security staff to police the grounds.
Police were called around 2 a.m. and after arriving, they say they saw a large crowd of people near the center fountain causing a disturbance and several Broadway security officers “running around chasing people”.
Police say one security guard was knocked down, then beaten with his own duty belt. That person was taken to the hospital with possible internal injuries.
Another security officer was already on the ground when an unknown man ran up to him and kicked him in his head. That security officer was taken to the hospital as well.
A female security officer was punched in the face by someone, according to police. She had injuries to her right eye and was also hospitalized.
Myrtle Beach Police Department spokesperson Master Corporal Tom Vest told local news that there are no current suspects from the assault.
Broadway at the Beach has experienced ongoing issues, just before and after midnight, centered around it’s night club related businesses.
