Trial begins for man charged with stabbing two men at Myrtle Beach club

Testimony began Tuesday for a Summerville man charged with stabbing two people at a Myrtle Beach night club.

Derek Mundy, 24, was charged with two counts of assault with intent to kill following the November 2008 incident inside the Celebrity Square area of Broadway at the Beach. Mundy’s trial began Tuesday after a jury was selected Monday before Circuit Court Judge Steven John.

Myrtle Beach police filed the charges against Mundy after two men told officers they were stabbed while inside a club. The men’s wounds were not life-threatening.

A woman told police a man punched her boyfriend in the face and her boyfriend and one of his friends confronted the man and they fought inside the club.

The woman identified Mundy as the man involved in the fight, the report showed.

A security guard told police he saw the suspect running through the parking lot just before police arrived, the report stated.

The guard showed police the suspect and they took him into custody.
