A 21-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder for a stabbing that happened in Cottageville. 

The Colleton County Sheriff's Office arrested Timothy Wayne Thornton. He was given a $60,000 bond on Thursday. 

His arrest stems from an incident that happened Sunday night when a deputy responded to the 24,000 block of Augusta Highway for a stabbing. 

The deputy found the victim in a truck on Sidneys Road near Pioneer Trail. Authorities say a woman was driving the victim to Colleton Medical Center for treatment 

The victim was in the front passenger seat and bleeding from his chest. 

A woman in the truck told deputies she was inside her home when she said she heard the victim tell his son that a man had just pulled a gun on him. 

The woman told investigators that she did not see the actual stabbing, but saw blood on the back steps of the home. 

Investigators said they believe a boyfriend of a woman who had been at the home stabbed the victim. 

A report states when deputies returned to the scene they saw a man walking along side Augusta Highway. The man was later identified as Thornton who was then detained by deputies.
