CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Three people are in custody in connection with a Christmas day stabbing at a Ladson convenience store and the stabbing victim is facing a charge as well, Charleston County deputies say.

Darnell Turner, 37; and Cynthia Rhodes, 44; turned themselves in to deputies Tuesday afternoon, according to booking reports released from the sheriff's office. Turner faces a charge of second-degree assault and battery and Rhodes faces a charge of third degree assault, the reports state.

A third man, Colin Magliano, 34, turned himself in to deputies Tuesday morning, Charleston County Sheriff's Maj. Eric Watson said. Magliano, who is accused of stabbing victim Greg Brown, faces a charge of first degree assault and battery, jail records indicate.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Watson said Brown would also be charged in the incident because he was seen stomping on Magliano while Magliano was being restrained.

Magliano's arrest came just more than an hour before the National Action Network, apparently unaware of his surrender to authorities, held a 10 a.m. press conference outside the sheriff's office to accuse deputies of creating a double standard by not arresting anyone in the case and demand charges be filed.

Surveillance footage of the incident was also released.

Brown said he was trying to break up a fight at the time he was stabbed. At the news conference, the victim, Greg Brown, said he was picking up videos at a Ladson convenience store Christmas night when he saw a fight in progress. Brown said he tried to break up the altercation and thought that was the end of it.

According to an incident report, deputies responded to the store at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Friday and learned the incident stemmed from an argument Magliano and a woman started with Rhodes about music blaring from Rhodes's vehicle. The argument was intense but later discontinued when the Rhodes briefly left the gas station, the report states.

Deputies say a short time later, she returned with Turner, who picked up Magliano and slammed him to the floor.

Brown told deputies he saw the altercation and immediately pushed Turner away from Magliano.

The incident report states Magliano then stood up, pulled a knife from his pocket and stabbed Brown. Brown said one of the knife wounds came close to hitting his intestines.

Brown said he was told Magliano was not charged because because investigators ruled it was a case of self defense. 

"The police are saying it was self-defense but to my knowledge self-defense means one coming at a person, attacking them face to face, not me having my back turned and you attacking me." Brown said."I just want him in jail. I just want justice to be served. It doesn't matter if he was white, black, green, yellow. it doesn't matter, I just want the job to be done the right way."

Watson issued the following statement on the group's accusations following the press conference:

"As a law enforcement agency, one of our most important fundamental duties and responsibilities to our community is and will always be to make every good-faith effort when conducting an investigation. Our approach to this particular incident is no different from any other criminal acts that our Agency has investigated in the past. This incident simply stemmed over “loud music” and adults lacking the ability to act civilized. Unfortunately, as result of this incident, someone was injured. This investigation will continue and additional arrests will be made by our detectives."

Magliano, Turner and Rhodes were being held pending a bond hearing Tuesday at 7 p.m., deputies say.
