A 34-year-old man allegedly assaulted two people with scissors on Saturday at a Myrtle Beach motel, according to arrest warrants.

Robert Benjamin Mcnigh Brown is charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime. A judge denied bond for Brown Monday morning on the attempted murder charges.

Officers were called Saturday to Ocean West Motel, 204 N. Kings Highway, after reports that two people had been assaulted, an arrest warrant said.

One of the victims gave police the name of the suspect, who had allegedly assaulted them with scissors, according to a warrant. Hotel cameras show Brown swinging and stabbing the victim “several times” in the parking lot with scissors, authorities said.

The condition of the victims is unknown.
