GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - A man wanted for assaulting a woman with a pool cue over the summer is now in custody.

Georgetown County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Carrie Cuthbertson reports the US Marshals Fugitive Apprehension Task Force found the suspect where he works and took 29-year-old Maurice Thomas McCallum into custody.

Cuthbertson says they believed McCallum had fled to the Conway area after an altercation on July 15 at the 701 Club, on 21079 North Fraser Street in the Yauhannah community. It's unknown who McCallum was fighting with, but the security officer who tried to break up the fight was hit in the head with a pool cue.

McCallum was transferred to the Georgetown County Detention Center and has been charged with attempted murder.
