LITTLE RIVER, SC (WMBF) - A man has been charged with attempted murder after first responders found a woman bleeding at a homeless camp in Little River.

John Ryan, 42, was charged with the said crime Friday, following the incident near the Food Lion on Highway 17, police said.

According to police, a witness reported that the three of them were drinking when the suspect got up and assaulted the female, who was asleep, with a metal crutch for no apparent reason.

Police said they found the crutch broken and bent and knew that Ryan had a broken foot that required him to use crutches.

Ryan was taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
