Lexington man arrested after being stabbed

August 8, 2017

LEXINGTON, S.C. – Lexington County deputies arrested a Lexington man Sunday after he was stabbed by a man intervening in a domestic dispute.


Terrance Maurice Sligh, 29, is charged with third degree assault and cruelty to children, according to arrest warrants.


“Based on what investigators determined at the scene, Sligh was stabbed by a man attempting to protect a child in the home,” Lexington County Jay Koon said. “The cruelty to children charge stems from Sligh punching the child as a form of discipline.”


Sligh struck the man and was stabbed during the scuffle, according to investigators. The other man was not charged.


Sligh was arrested while being treated at the hospital for his stab wounds. After his release from the hospital, he was transported to the Lexington County Detention Center. Sligh was released from jail Monday afternoon after posting more than $1,500 bail.
