One man was airlifted from Tabor City after he was stabbed in the head during a melee near Chadbourn Monday.
Shikei Daniels, 24, was transported to New Hanover Regional. Daniels was a passenger in a car driven by Jaylan Sumpter when the car was stopped by Ptl. Nick Forster in Tabor City around 8:11 p.m.
Forster reported that he stopped the vehicle because Sumpter was traveling at a high rate of speed with his hazard flashers activated on U.S. 701. Daniels was holding a blood-soaked shirt to his face, the report said. Sumpter said he was trying to get Daniels to a hospital in Loris.
The report said that Forster gave Daniels a trauma bandage while contacting Columbus EMS. Daniels told Forster he was stabbed by an individual he did not know during a dispute over money. The incident happened in the 2300 block of Williams Road, near Chadbourn.
The sheriff’s office reported that out of a group of ten people at the address, at least seven individuals, including a juvenile, were involved in the dispute.
No charges have been filed yet, and the investigation is continuing.
