Report: Machete-wielding suspect tries to rob man outside MB bar

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A man suffered deep cuts to his hand last night outside a Myrtle Beach bar while defending himself from a man with a machete who tried to rob him, according to police reports.

Myrtle Beach Police responded to the Conway Hospital emergency room Wednesday night to find a man with deep cuts to his left hand, the report states.

He told the responding officer that he and another person were outside the Barrel Bar at 2303 S. Kings Highway at about 7:40 p.m. when a man started walking toward them from the rear of the parking lot. The suspect told the victim to give him his money, and when the victim said no, the suspect pulled a black machete from his pants, according to the report.

The suspect swung the machete at the victim, who put up his left hand to prevent from being hit in the head, he told police. The victim said he hit the suspect in the face, pushed him back and ran toward the vehicle belonging to the person he was with. He saw the suspect running toward Ocean Boulevard as they left the scene.

The victim's hand was cut deeply across the pinky, ring and middle fingers, and he received medication and nine stitches, the report states.

The victim described the suspect as a white man, about 5-feet-10-inches tall, weighing about 240 pounds, with a scruffy beard. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, the victim told police, and spoke with a "country" accent, but used street slang.
