Police are looking for someone they said beat a Spartanburg man with a sledgehammer then cut him with a machete.
Spartanburg police said they found the victim bleeding with several bruises and cuts on him outside of 177 W. Wood St. about 6:45 p.m. on Monday.
The victim told police that Ricky White, 21, hit him several times in the chest with the sledgehammer while he was lying on the couch, then cut him with the machete. The victim fought back, throwing the machete out of reach, and was able to run out of the house as White went into the kitchen for a knife, police said.
The victim was treated at a local hospital and released. Police said the victim resided at the home with White and two other people and was attacked after having a fight with White.
The Spartanburg Public Safety Department signed an arrest warrant for White on attempted murder.
Officers ask anyone with information about the whereabouts of White to call 864-596-2065 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
