Florence Morning NewsAugust 3, 2013 

— A man and woman were arrested Friday after a passerby spotted them having sex in a yard of a downtown home.

Neither lived at the home, which is several blocks from the Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center.

A person who was at a nearby home, in the 300 block of Warley Street, called police to report that two people were in the yard engaged in a sexual act about 11:30 a.m., Florence Police Maj. Carlos Raines said.

An officer responded to the call, walked around to the back of the building and found a man and woman mostly unclothed and in a compromising position, Raines said.

Joy McFadden, 31, of 236 Tylaura Road in Mullins and Jarmal Dixon, 25, of 1419 Valparaiso Drive, Florence, are each charged with one count of indecent exposure.

They were booked at the Florence County Detention Center in Effingham, and were awaiting a bond hearing.
