Little River woman facing attempted murder charge released on bail

A Little River woman charged in the stabbing of a woman at her home in July has been released from J. Reuben Long Detention Center on $15,000 bail, according to jail records.

Mishelle Janet Clark, 45, of Little River was charged with attempted murder and booked into the jail at 3:14 a.m. on July 23 and released at 11:11 a.m. Friday, according to jail records.

The charge against Clark stemmed from Horry County police being called at 12:15 a.m. July 21 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.
