MBPD: Man stabbed in the chest drove himself to the hospital

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A man who was attacked and stabbed in the chest in front of his Myrtle Beach apartment, drove himself to the hospital early Tuesday, according to Myrtle Beach police.

The police report said the victim left his building in the Carolina Breeze Apartments around 11:45 p.m. Monday to go to the gas station to pick up a few things. When he walked back to his apartment, he was met by one of the suspects in front of his building. The suspect told the victim to "drop your stuff."

When he tried to defend himself by punching the suspect, the victim said another man walked up and "stuck me in the chest with an object." At that point, both of the suspects ran away.

The victim told police he didn't realize the object had penetrated his skin until he felt something warm running down his chest, and he realized it was blood. He went into his apartment, grabbed his coat and drove himself to the hospital, where he checked in at 1:24 a.m. He was admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police described the first suspect as a dark-skinned black man, with a thin build, around six-feet-tall. He had thick facial hair, was wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt. The second suspect is described a a black male with a stocky build, around five-feet-eight-inches tall. He does not have facial hair, and was wearing a gray pullover jacket.
