SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) — Police have arrested a suspect in a stabbing that sent a man to the hospital earlier this month.

Tyheim Rogers, 24, of Inman is charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime, according to jail records.

According to the report, a doctor stated none of the victim’s major arteries were hit in the stabbing who underwent surgery.
