MULLINS, S.C. (WBTW) — A man wanted by Mullins police after another man was stabbed during a fight early Saturday morning has been arrested.
James Goodman was arrested about 12:30 p.m. Monday without incident, Mullins police said in a Facebook post. He is facing an attempted murder charge, police said.
The victim in the incident was stabbed once in the neck area and taken to MUSC Florence hospital where he was in stable condition after having surgery, according to Mullins police Capt. Phil Mostowski.
It happened about 3 a.m. at a home in the 700 block of Briarwood Circle, according to a police report. Police on Sunday said they had obtained a warrant charging Goodman, who goes by the nickname “Foot,” with attempted murder.
According to a police report, the victim identified his attacker as “Foot” shortly after officers arrived at the scene.
The report also said a witness told officers that he, another man and the victim were sitting on the front porch when “Foot” approached them and started “fussing” with the victim. That turned into a fight during which the victim was stabbed in the neck.
The man told police he did not know “Foot’s” real name and did not know what the argument was about, the report said.
The suspect ran away after stabbing the victim, the report said, and police were not able to find the weapon used in the attack.
No additional information was immediately available.
