The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office arrested Michael Raymond Reynolds Jr., 48, of Rembert, who is accused of striking a person with a truck twice and then attempting to stab the person after the fact on Sept. 9.
Reynolds was charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, said Deputy Adrienne Sarvis, public information officer for the sheriff’s office.
Warrants claim the suspect struck a male victim twice with a 2002 Chevrolet truck – causing an injury to the victim’s ankle – before exiting the vehicle and attempting to stab the victim while in Sumter County.
Reynolds was transported to Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center where he remains, Sarvis. Bond was denied for both charges.
