A 15-years-old was having a good time with friends at a pool in Summerville when they were told to leave because “they didn’t belong.” A white woman is said to have hit the boy three times while chasing them out of the pool, and she later resisted her arrest by physically assaulting police officers.

Stephanie Sebby-Strempel, 38, was caught on video by the victim as she angrily says, “Get out now” and “How does that feel?” before hitting his camera and stating “there are three numbers I can dial, 911,” she then swipes to the camera once again after calling the teenagers “punks.”

According to the victim and his friends, the woman was using racial slurs before he started to film, and even when they began to leave the place respectfully, she chased them to the exit and hit him twice in the face and once in the chest.

The teen told the police that he was staying at a friends’ house and that a family friend who lives in the Reminisce Community had invited him and the friend to go swimming at the pool, the report stated.

Deanna RocQuermore, the mother of the victim, expressed her frustration in a press conference held on June 27 saying:

“This is a situation that should have never happened. It was taken out of context and out of control. No child including mine or anybody else’s ever, ever, deserves that type of abuse or treatment. And to be struck not once, not twice, but three times by someone that is upset because of the color of someone’s skin, and they don’t belong at their swimming pool.”

The victim’s defendant, Marvin Pendarvis, praised the boy for his restrained reaction, stating that knew what could happen if he were to defend himself.

“I think in this situation he’s seen how these situations go. We’ve seen exactly the opposite of what could happen if you attempt to defend yourself or act in any way that could be perceived as defending yourself.”

Sebby-Strempel is facing third-degree assault charges after the incident. On Monday, Dorchester County Sheriff's Office detectives went to serve a warrant at the woman’s address, and she not only resisted the arrest but pushed a police officer into a wall and bite another in the arm. Now, she’s also being charged with two counts of assaulting a police officer while resisting arrest.

On Tuesday, a judge set a bond of $65,000 for Stephenie Sebby-Strempel, and she was prohibited from contacting the victims in any way, including electronic contact, according to court documents.

Sebby’s lawyer stated they’re not too worried about the charge of assault against the teenager because “there is certainly more than one side of the story on that charge.” The woman is set to go back to court on July 11.
