A 29-year-old North Carolina man remains jailed after Myrtle Beach police charged him in connection with a stabbing that occurred early Sunday where the victim allegedly walked in front of him taking a photo, according to authorities.

Brian Terrell Strayhorne, 29, of Rocky Mount, N.C., is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center without bond on a charge of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, police said.

The charge stemmed from 3:15 a.m. Sunday when police were called to 901 S. Ocean Blvd., for a stabbing at the Captain Quarters.

Officers learned the 26-year-old victim had been walking along Ocean Boulevard with his brother when he unknowingly walked in front of Strayhorne, who was taking a photograph, according to the report. The men argued and fought.

During the fight, the victim was stabbed with an unknown object, according to the report. Strayhorne was found at The Palms motel at 703 S. Ocean Blvd., and the victim was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Detectives are investigating the incident. The report did not list any additional details.
