NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Police in North Myrtle Beach arrested three Ohio men after a late-night stabbing that left two people injured.

According to a report from North Myrtle Beach, officers responded to The Avista Resort, located at 300 N. Ocean Blvd., around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday in reference to a fight. Officials say a man was walking home from work when he was attacked by three men.

A couple told North Myrtle Beach Police they heard a man calling for help in the resort’s parking lot and tried to pull the men off of the victim. An official police report says one of the witnesses was struck several times in the back of the head and received a knife wound to the back of the neck.

North Myrtle Beach Police say officers arrived on scene after the fight moved from The Avista to the area of 2nd Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard. As the three suspects attempted to leave the area, a responding officer says the victim fell on the hood of their patrol car, and could see “blood pouring out of the knife wounds he had.”

Officers located Thomas Roy Ammond, 38, of Canton, OH, behind nearby bushes and placed him in handcuffs. A second suspect, identified as Kenneth James Styer, 31, of Canton, OH, was later located attempting to enter The Avista Resort.

Police also arrested 19-year-old Thomas Roy Ammond, also of Canton, OH.

All three are booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center under charges of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. On Friday morning, a judge denied bond for each of the three suspects.
