A stabbing happened Sunday afternoon at a gas station in Mineral Springs where an 18-year-old male was injured.

WBTV reports Union County Communications received a call at 1 p.m. announcing the stabbing. Medical personnel were on the scene attending to the victim when the responding officers arrived.

The victim, when questioned, stated he was stabbed multiple times outside of the store before the suspect fled.

Witnesses on the scene who talked to the police described the suspect and his escape vehicle. The identity of the suspect is unknown to the victim. The victim was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The escape vehicle was later found at a residence that is in close proximity to the alleged attack. The officers, after an interview, arrested Matthew Daniel Gatewood for the incident and Gatewood was later charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, With Intent to Kill, Inflicting Serious Injury.

Gatewood is in jail with a $150,000 bond.

The police are keeping quiet on a possible motive other than the victim did not begin the attack. Gatewood is being watched for another stabbing incident which occurred at a Wal-Mart in 2010.

At press time, the victim is guarded at the hospital as he heals.
