“The victim and the subject Mr. Hastie had a previous relationship and he had come over yesterday,” said Captain Courtney Dennis of the Irmo Police Department. “We believe he broke in the residence and attacked the victim…right now we’re being told she’s been stabbed upwards of 20 times.”

Hastie was previously involved in a pursuit with Irmo Police on February 8 leading officers toward Downtown Columbia. Hastie later turned himself in and was charged with failure to stop for blue light. He was released on bond.

Now, the 22-year-old Hastie will be charged with attempted murder, first-degree burglary, and kidnapping. He was been transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

Hastie waived the right to be seen at a bond hearing Thursday. The case is now going to circuit court.
