Argument over long shower leads to stabbing

SUMTER, SC (AP) - Investigators say an argument over how long a woman had been in the shower led to a Sumter County stabbing.

Deputies told The Item of Sumter they found the 23-year-old victim with four puncture wounds to his back after being called to investigate a fight late Saturday.

Investigators say the victim said he was invited to the home to watch football, and was stabbed after arguing with the homeowner about how long his girlfriend had been in the shower.

Deputies charged 32-year-old John Scott with attempted murder. Scott says he stabbed the victim after he was threatened. The name of the victim has not been released.

It wasn't clear if Scott had a lawyer.

Deputies say the victim needed stitches, but the injuries were not life-threatening.
