A Beaufort woman has accused a man of casting spells on her and her neighbors, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.

The 85-year-old woman said her 85-year-old neighbor placed a root -- a hoodoo spell -- on her, causing her feet to swell. The woman also said he has cast spells on her neighbors, causing them to fall out of their chairs, the report said.

The woman told deputies she contacted the Sheriff's Office for assistance after the Beaufort Police Department did nothing to help her, the report said.
