MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach police arrested a woman early Wednesday morning for allegedly cutting a man on his stomach with a retractable blade.

According to information on the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s website, Criche Denise Nelson, 26, was charged with first-degree assault and battery.

The MBPD incident report states officers responded to a residence in the 600 block of Third Avenue South in reference to an assault shortly after midnight.

According to victim, the suspect and another person started arguing and he attempted to stop it.

At that point, the suspect reportedly became “irate” and began to physically attack the man, the report stated.

“The victim stated he was trying to defend himself and pushed the offender away into the wall causing damage,” the report stated.

He told police he tried to run out of the house, but the suspect returned with the retractable blade.

The suspect swung the blade at the man and missed, the report stated. He tried to run outside, but was reportedly tackled by Nelson and both fell to the floor.

“When the victim was able to get up and out of the house, the offender was able to cut the victim on his stomach with the retractable blade,” the report stated.

Police said they saw the large cut across his stomach when they arrived and it was slightly bleeding, according to the report. EMS arrived to treat the injury.
