Man accused of stabbing 2 in Spartanburg Co.

Nicholas Johnson

SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – A man was arrested on assault charges after he allegedly stabbed two people in Spartanburg County.

Deputies responded Sunday night to a disturbance with a weapon in the 1600 block of Belcher Road. When they arrived on scene, deputies found  three female victims.

One victim was reportedly bleeding from a small stab wound on her leg and had another cut on her hand.

The second victim was reportedly bleeding from a cut on top of her hand.

A third victim then walked up to the home from a neighbor’s house where she called 911, and deputies saw she had a cut on top of her hand and was bleeding.

EMS was called to the scene.

One victim told deputies that 28-year-old Nicholas Adam Keith Johnson came inside the home yelling at them for having called the police about a previous incident.

Johnson reportedly grabbed one of the victims and told another victim he was going to kill the victim.

The victim said Johnson then stabbed her in the leg and then when another victim tried to get him to stop, he stabbed her in the top of the hand.

The second victim said she witnessed Johnson holding the knife to the other woman’s throat and threatening to kill her.

The third victim was also cut on the top of her hand during the incident, but she was unsure if Johnson stabbed her, or if she was cut when she was handed the knife from the other victim who was able to get it away from Johnson.

Johnson also reportedly destroyed one of the victim’s cellphones during the incident.

A K-9 unit was brought to the scene to locate Johnson after he left the home.

Johnson was charged with one count each of aggravated assault and battery and first-degree assault and battery.

He’s in the Spartanburg County Detention Center under $30,000 bond.
