WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

A 21-year-old Hollywood man was arrested late Saturday after witnesses told police he cut a man several times with a machete in West Ashley.

According to a Charleston Police Department incident report, officers responded to a stabbing at 1900 Hazelwood Drive 4:15 p.m. They arrived to find two men sitting on the steps. One of the men was shirtless and bleeding from his head, hands, and torso.

The report states witnesses told police a man armed with a machete began swinging the weapon at the victim, a 34-year-old man, cutting him several times before fleeing the scene.

Several hours later, police arrested 21-year-old Tyrone Rashad Brown and charged him with first-degree assault and battery in connection with the incident.

Brown was booked at the Charleston County Detention Center just after midnight. He was granted a $25,000 bond over the weekend, but was still behind bars on Monday.

The victim was taken to Medical University of South Carolina for treatment of his injuries.
