MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - One man was arrested Saturday morning after stabbing his wife in the leg, according to a report from the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

Randy Achee Barnhill, 55, of Myrtle Beach, called dispatch just after 2 a.m. Saturday and requested an ambulance for his wife, the victim, but requested that the police department not respond.

Officers located Barnhill and the victim in the motel room and observed the victim sitting on the bed with a laceration to her inner left thigh.

Barnhill made a spontaneous utterance that he just "poked her with a knife," according to the police report.

The victim told detectives that Barnhill had been drinking all day. She said that another man came up to the motel room and that Barnhill and the other man started to do drugs. After the man left, she and Barnhill engaged in a verbal argument.

She continued to say that Barnhill then pinned her to the bed, put a knife to her throat, and told her he was going to kill her, according to the police report.

The victim noticed that she had been stabbed in the leg once Barnhill got off of her.

Officers on scene detained Barnhill and removed him from the motel room. Barnhill started to act disorderly and additional units were called to transport him to Myrtle Beach Jail.

According to Myrtle Beach Police, Barnhill was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated assault.
