NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A judge set bond Tuesday for a North Charleston man police say was shot in the buttocks by his children's mother after he stabbed and threatened to shoot her.
The judge set bond at $71,000 for 31-year-old Arthur Lee Wilson, who is charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault and battery, unlawful possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number.
According to North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor, police responded to a home at 1268 Sumner Avenue just before 2 a.m. last Monday after receiving reports of a domestic incident. When they got there, the front door was locked and no one answered the door.
Pryor said officers then learned the victim and suspect were en route to Medical University of South Carolina for injury treatment.
Officers then met with the victim at MUSC, who told them the father of her children, Wilson, had forced his way into the home and physically assaulted her.
She said during the scuffle, she tried to grab a knife, but Wilson was able to take it from her and stab her in the leg. The victim said Wilson then pulled out a handgun and threatened to shoot her.
During an ensuing struggle, the victim told police she was able to gain control of the gun so she shot Wilson in the buttocks.
Both the suspect and the victim were treated for their wounds.
Wilson remained behind bars at the Charleston County Detention Center on Wednesday.
