LONGS, SC (WMBF) – The suspect in the stabbing incident at the G Spot Bar and Grill in Longs last week was arrested and charged Monday, according to records.
Durance Antwan McCray, 24, was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention center Monday morning on two counts of assault. He was released several hours later.
The Horry County Police Department responded to a call of shots fired at the G Spot Bar Grill in Longs around 4:20 a.m. Monday, October 28.
The police report from the HCPD said security guards at the G Spot Bar broke up a fight at the bar, and had one person detained when a male in a white Mercury vehicle fired several shots, distracting them. While they were distracted, the detained male was able to escape.
That suspect was identified by Horry County Police as McCray, a resident of Longs.
The vehicle drove off, and a search of the area that the car was believed to have been parked in did not turn up any shell casings or signs of damage. A member of the G Spot security team tells WMBF News they believe the shots were fired to distract security. The member of the team went on to say about 10 members of security were on staff inside and outside of the club.
As officers were leaving the scene, they received a call that a stabbing victim had arrived at the hospital in Little River. They then learned that two victims left the G Spot Bar. One victim said he was standing outside the dance floor when someone hit him, and they began fighting. The suspect then jumped into the fight and cut the victim in his upper right butt cheek. The victim was escorted from the bar by security, while alerting them the suspect had the knife.
A second victim said there was a big fight, and she was struck from behind three-to-five times. She said she turned around and saw the suspect standing behind her with a chair.
The police report from the HCPD says that due to the proximity of the calls, it is believed by officers that the two calls are related. One victim positively identified McCray as the suspect, which was verified through a photograph.
According to the wife of the man who was stabbed, he is doing okay and recovering at home at this time.
