Densel Dean Pennington, 29, of 2526 Ekom Breach Road, Laurens was arrested Wednesday and charged with kidnapping, second-degree domestic violence and unlawful conduct toward a child.

On Wednesday, Ware Shoals emergency dispatchers heard a 911 call from a child who said their parents were fighting, according to a report. The child told dispatchers the man asked the woman to say her last words and that he would kill her.

When officers arrived on scene they spoke with the woman and asked to speak with the children, according to a report. It was then that the man got off the couch and asked to be taken to jail, and officers took him outside to speak with him.

The child who called 911 said they saw the man hitting the woman on the couch while the woman said for him to get off of her, the report said.

The woman told officers the man did not threaten her and said she didn’t want to write a statement. Officers noted the man told them: “I put my hands on her.”
