A Seneca man is behind bars today after allegedly threatening to harm a woman and a minor.

Oconee County deputies say this incident began with a call to a home on East Tamassee Road on September 9th.

Deputies were responding to a report of domestic violence. Upon arriving at the scene, they found the alleged victim, as well as six minors present in the home.

The victim in the home said that Richard George Wright, age 27, had threatened violence against her and one of the children present.

The next day Wright was arrested without incident.

He’s being held in the Oconee County Detention Center on a domestic violence charge, second degree.
