The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Wednesday night stabbing incident that left a Beaufort man seriously injured.
Sheriff's deputies responded to a reported stabbing victim in the area of Joe Frazier Rd. and Godwin Rd. just after 10 p.m. When deputies arrived, they made contact with a 47-year-old male who was suffering from multiple stab wounds and lacerations to his upper body.
The victim was transported to Beaufort Memorial Hospital and later flown to MUSC, where he remains for additional treatment of multiple injuries.
The victim told police that he was walking home from a friend's house when he was attacked by two men who repeatedly punched and stabbed him with a knife. According to the victim, one of the suspects is an acquaintance who he has an ongoing dispute with.
Investigators have identified two persons of interest in the attack but no arrests have been made yet. Contact Investigator Cpl. A. Rice at 843.255.3429 or Crimestoppers with any information.
