Argument over length of shower leads to stabbing in Sumter

Posted: Updated:

SUMTER, S.C. (AP) - Investigators say an argument over how long a woman had been in the shower led to a Sumter County stabbing.

The 23-year-old victim was found with four puncture wounds to his back after deputies were called to investigate a fight late Saturday.

Investigators say the victim said he was invited to the home to watch football, and was stabbed after arguing with the homeowner about how long his girlfriend had been in the shower.

Deputies charged 32-year-old John Scott with attempted murder. Scott says he stabbed the victim after he was threatened. The name of the victim has not been released.

It wasn't clear if Scott had a lawyer.

Deputies say the victim needed stitches, but the injuries were not life-threatening.
