BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -
Bond was set at $480,000 on Friday for a man accused of stabbing a former Moncks Corner police chief and a 54-year-old man at a bar in Bonneau.
Investigators arrested Edward Ronald Yannacey of Bonneau.
On Thursday night, a deputy responded to the Watermark Bar and Grill on 1033 Black Oak Road for a report of a stabbing.
Authorities found a 54-year-old man, who was suffering from a "severe" laceration to the inside of his leg, on the ground being helped by people.
A crowd of people were also found holding Yannacey on the ground. The owner of the restaurant, who was one of the people holding the suspect down, told the deputy,"This son of a (expletive) right here is the one that done it."
Another victim, former Moncks Corner police chief Gregory Hoover, was standing against the railing in front of the restaurant. Authorities say Hoover, 52, appeared to be suffering from a stab wound to his left hip.
The deputy reported that as he was escorting Yannacey, who appeared "very" intoxicated, to his patrol car, a knife sheath with a clip fell from Yannacey.
Investigators also confiscated a double edged knife found with blood which investigators say was apparently used in the assault.
The restaurant owner said it all started when he told Yannacey to leave the bar. According to the owner, he later looked outside and saw the 54-year-old victim and Yannacey fighting.
An affidavit states Hoover was attempting to come to the aid of the victim when the suspect stabbed him in the stomach area.
