Sheriff’s Office Investigating Stabbing

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the stabbing of a 20-year old Beaufort man that occurred last night in Burton.

At approximately 9:30 pm last night, Sheriff’s deputies responded to Beaufort Memorial Hospital in reference to a stabbing victim. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the victim who was being treated for a stab wound.

The victim advised that he had been playing basketball at an outdoor court at the Burton Wells Recreational Park with several other individuals when a fight broke out. The victim reported that he attempted to break up the fight, and in the process was stabbed by an unknown individual. He was then transported by a witness to the hospital for treatment, where law enforcement was notified of the incident.

The victim’s condition remains undisclosed at this time, however, his injuries are not suspected to be life threatening. No description of any possible suspect(s) was available, as the victim did not see the person who attacked him from behind.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with any information to contact the Beaufort County Dispatch Center at 843-524-2777.
