MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA – A 29-year-old North Carolina man remains jailed in Myrtle Beach after police charged him in connection with a stabbing that occurred early Sunday where the victim allegedly walked in front of him taking a photo, according to authorities.
Brian Terrell Strayhorne, 29, of Rocky Mount, N.C., is being held pending a bond hearing on a charge of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, police said.
The charge stemmed from 3:15 a.m. Sunday when police were called to 901 S. Ocean Blvd., for a stabbing at the Captain Quarters.
Officers learned the 26-year-old victim had been walking along Ocean Boulevard with his brother when he unknowingly walked in front of Strayhorne, who was taking a photograph, according to the report. The men argued and fought.
During the fight, the victim was stabbed with an unknown object, according to the report. Strayhorne was found at The Palms motel at 703 S. Ocean Blvd., and the victim was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Detectives are investigating the incident. The report did not list any additional details.

DALLAS, TEXAS – A Dallas man remains in jail after police say he randomly stabbed a shopper inside a Target store.
Police say Antowann Davis, 30, walked into the Target on Marsh Lane around 9:15 p.m. Thursday and took a butcher knife out of its packaging in the kitchen department.
Martha Jones, 29, said she was browsing inside the store when Davis walked past her and shoved the knife into her lower back.
“I felt something behind me,” said Jones, a Dallas-based lawyer, from her bed at Parkland Memorial Hospital. “He stabbed me in the back and kept walking.”
Jones remained in the hospital in good condition Friday.
She said Davis never spoke to her, or even tried to grab her purse. She said she had never seen him before.
Although court documents say Jones lost a lot of blood, she was able to call for help and provide security a good description of the suspect. Dallas police arrested Davis a block away.
Davis faces an aggravated assault charge, and remains in the Dallas County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
