GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - A Berkeley County judge set bond tonight for the man charged in an assault Sunday morning in Goose Creek that sent another man to the hospital.

A judge set bond at $100,000 for Ferrell Crockett, 30, of Goose Creek, who is charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

Deputies responded to the 100 block of Plainfield Avenue of Goose Creek at approximately 4:30 a.m., according to Berkeley County Sheriff's spokesman Michael Mulè. The victim was found unconscious and suffering from multiple facial and skull fractures, Mulè said.

At the bond hearing, the victim's parents described their son's injuries.

"There's really no fist marks to it," his father said. "It's just from one of them foot marks, he has big ol' mark on this side and a square mark on this side."

"Your honor today is our 19th wedding anniversary and we're celebrating it in your courtroom, because our son who is 22 years old was severely beaten by this gentleman," the victim's mother told the court.

Witnesses say the fight may have stemmed from a bad breakup. According to a police report, the victim was helping a friend move when witnesses say a group of men at the house got into an argument that turned violent.

Family members say the victim was trying to break up the fight when they say he was attacked.

The victim is in intensive care recovering from his injuries.

Crockett was being held at the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.

The investigation is ongoing and investigators say they expect more arrests to be made.

Anyone with information on the assault should contact the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office at (843) 719-4424.
