Wardell Bullock of Manson has been jailed in connection to a stabbing and sexual assault and is awaiting extradition to Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Bullock, a 53-year-old of 1544 Bullocksville Park Road, was located at a relative’s house on June 26. He’s charged with stabbing one woman, and sexually assaulting another on the same morning.

“We served the warrants from Myrtle Beach,” said Sheriff Peter White. “We got information that he was in the area, that he came to a relative’s house.”

White said he understood from Myrtle Beach police that Bullock was charged with serious assault against two female victims.

“I understand one was sexually assaulted,” White said.

White said an agent with the State Bureau of Investigation in the Henderson area on unrelated business helped with the Bullock arrest as a courtesy.

According to published reports, Myrtle Beach police were searching for a man they described as a 53-year-old suspected of being involved with the stabbing of one woman in the chest and neck the early morning hours of June 22.

The police in Myrtle Beach responded to two locations, finding a woman bleeding on the front porch of a neighbor’s house at about 1:44 a.m., then at about 4 a.m., they responded to the location where a second woman reported she had been grabbed by the neck and forced into a wooded area where she was sexually assaulted.

The police reports published by The Myrtle Beach Sun said the cases were connected, and the same suspect was being sought in both incidents.

Both of the women received transport to a hospital for treatment.
