Conway, SC - CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - One man is in custody by Horry County Police following a weekend stabbing in Conway.

Sgt. Robert Kegler, spokesman for the Horry County Police Department, says officers were dispatched to Bottle Branch Road just before 11 p.m. on Friday in reference to a stabbing. When police arrived, one man was located with a stab wound on the left side of his torso.

Through an investigation on the incident, officers learned the stabbing occurred as a result of a verbal argument that turned physical. Hector Osorio, 34, of Conway, was identified as the aggressor and fled on foot before police arrival.

A search by Horry County officers led to the discovery of Osorio, who was located in a field close to the home on Bottle Branch Road.

Osorio was arrested following a short pursuit by police and charged with assault and battery with intent to kill, in addition to resisting arrest. He is currently in custody at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
