A Little River woman was charged with attempted murder after Horry County police learned a 32-year-old woman was stabbed at her home, according to authorities.
Mishelle Janet Clark, 45, of Little River, was charged with attempted murder and booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 3:14 a.m. Monday, according to jail records. She is being held pending a bond hearing.
The charge stemmed from Horry County police being called at 12:15 a.m. Saturday to 1527 Bellamy Drive for a stabbing, police said. Officers found the victim sitting on the porch.
The victim told police that Clark had been to the house several times during the night and was told each time not to come back, according to the report. The victim said she argued and fought with Clark, who cut the victim on the chest and then stabbed her in the chest.
Witnesses told police Clark left in a truck, which police later found in the area after getting a call about a domestic dispute at a Wilco Hess station located on U.S. 17 in little River, according to the report. A man was changing a tire on the truck and told police that he got into an argument with Clark, who is his girlfriend.
The man said she got out of the truck and into a passerby’s vehicle and left the area, according to the report. The man called Clark on the phone and convinced her to return to the gas station where police took her into custody.
Officers found several knives inside the truck and took them as evidence.
