NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A man wanted for attempted murder is now in custody after a police chase.

Brandon McQuillan, 26, is accused of stabbing another man in the back several times on November 4, according to an incident report.

McQuillan wasn’t arrested until Thursday after a police chase through the Midlands that ended in Lee County.

When the victim confronted McQuillan about using more money off the card than agreed upon, the argument turned violent.

The victim was transported to Trident Hospital, after police arrived on the scene.
