MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 49-year-old man was arrested Monday evening after a stabbing was reported at a Myrtle Beach hotel.

Police responded to a resort in the 500 block of North Ocean Boulevard at about 7 p.m. Monday in reference to a report of a stabbing, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.

The victim, who was very uncooperative, told police he was stabbed in the leg by an older man at a hotel across down the street. Police determined he was talking about the Sea Cove Hotel at 305 North Ocean Boulevard.

According to another police report, the responding officer then when to that hotel and found blood spots in the elevator and on the third floor balcony. The officer talked to a security guard, who told him that the stabbing victim got into an argument with the alleged offender, later identified as Gary Lee Welch, over money.

The guard told police that the victim left, then came back an hour later, which is when the guard noticed blood inside the elevator. The guard found Welch on the third floor, and told him to go back into his room. The guard found the victim on the second floor, who said he was going back to his hotel to call police.

According to the report, police spoke to Welch, who was found with blood stains on his shoes and pants, and stated only that he got into a fight with the victim, denying any involvement in the stabbing. The officer found Welch was wanted by South Carolina Probation and Parole, and was taken into custody. The officer found a razor knife in Welch's pants pocket during a search.

Welch was arrested and charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

The incident remains under investigation by MBPD.

    Summer hasn't even technically started, yet the summer-like heat and humidity will continue to reach uncomfortable levels the next few days. We start off this morning with mugginess in the air. High temperatures reach near 87 along the Grand Strand but easily make it into the low 90s inland. The heat index will feel like 95 to 100 along the coast, but more like 102 to 105 inland.
