Man wanted for attempted murder after stabbing 2 in Greenwood


GREENWOOD, SC (WSPA) – Greenwood Police Department officials are looking for a man following a stabbing incident last week.

According to the police department’s Facebook post, officers responded to Williams Avenue on Friday around 7:40 p.m. following a call about at least one person who had been cut or stabbed.

When officers arrived on-scnee, they found a man and a woman suffering from stab wounds. 

Both victims reportedly had wounds to their chests, as well as other cuts.

According to the post, the man and woman were taken to Self Regional Healthcare by EMS for treatment of their injuries.

The victims told police that they were at home when the woman’s ex-boyfriend came to home to get some of his property.

“During the encounter they began to argue, at which time the suspect allegedly brandished a knife and attacked the female victim. The male victim tried to intervene and get the suspect off the female victim, at which time he received several wounds from the knife,” from the post.

Investigators have since identified Jonathan Bernard Fisher, 56, of Greenwood, as the suspect.

According to the post, Fisher is currently wanted by police on two counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

Anyone with information on Fisher’s whereabouts is asked to call 864-942-8407. Police ask that you do not confront Fisher, but rather call 911 immediately.
