Two Camden men are being sought in connection with the Jan. 2 stabbing of one of the men’s 45-year-old father-in-law.

A Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputy reported he was dispatched to Skyview Drive in Camden in response to a 911 call. When he arrived, he found the victim in the middle of the street with multiple stab wounds to the arm, back and stomach. The man was transported to KershawHealth and then airlifted to a Columbia hospital.

The victim’s daughter said she and her father had been at a friend’s house in Cassatt and that she left in one vehicle while her husband and another woman left in another vehicle. She said both vehicles stopped on the side of the road while she and the other woman got into an argument. However, both left the scene without incident.

A short time after returning home to Skyview Drive, she said, her father and her husband came into the house. She said she and her husband got into an argument and he got mad when her father took her side.

The woman said her husband left but returned a short time later with a second man and they both jumped on her father, with her husband stabbing her father. She said they left before the deputy arrived.

Emergency personnel who transported the victim to the hospital told the deputy the man had 28 stab wounds.

The KCSO reported the following other incidents during the period of Dec. 29-Jan. 7:

A woman living on Providence Road near Kershaw reported she was awakened a little before 4 a.m. Jan. 3 by the sound of her dogs barking and a noise at the back door. She realized someone was trying to break into the house. She shouted for the suspect to leave only to have the door kicked open. She said he was wearing gloves and was armed with a knife. The victim said the suspect demanded money and forced her to remove money from her purse and hand it to him.
