A North Charleston man has been charged with attempted murder and carjacking stemming from a Feb. 18 incident where a 60-year-old woman said she was tased and thrown from her car after agreeing to help a woman from her church and the woman’s family member.

Samuel Graham, 41, of O’Hear Avenue was arrested Feb. 21.

"The suspect asked the victim for a ride and beat her up during the ride," said Spencer Pryor, with the North Charleston Police Department.

Graham was found driving the victim’s car following the incident, according to police.

It started when North Charleston police officers on patrol noticed a semi-conscious woman partially lying in the roadway on O’Hear Avenue around 4:30 p.m., according to a police report.

The woman was bleeding from the ear and had an injury in the back of her head, according to the police report.

She was transported to a local hospital and placed in the ICU due to low oxygen levels, according to a police report.

Police put out an alert for her stolen car and officers located it near the incident location, with Graham driving and a female passenger, according to the report.

According to the police report, Graham lives in the building directly behind where the incident occurred.
