COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A 31-year-old Sumter man stands charged with two counts of attempted murder following an incident where he allegedly cut two women with a box cutter.

Sumter County deputies were called to a home on Murphy Street around 9:15 a.m. and found two women with various cuts all over their bodies. The two women painted the scene as an argument that spun wildly out of control.

According to deputies, Hazel Leonard Budden, Jr. was dating one of the women and began to hit her before slicing her with the box cutter. 

The girl's sister tried to stop the incident, deputies said, but Budden began to attack her as well. 

One of the women was treated as the scene while the other was transported to Palmetto Health Tuomey.

Budden, meanwhile, was arrested near the residence.
