The Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a stabbing that occurred at a residence located at 1620 Ruhamah Road, Liberty, South Carolina.

Deputies were dispatched and arrived at this location at approximately 6:01 this evening. Upon their arrival, they were advised that an altercation between brothers turned violent when one brother allegedly stabbed the other with a knife.  The victim advised Detectives that he had not seen his brother in over three years until this incident.  Both subjects are adult age males.

The alleged victim was transported to an area hospital with what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect, identified as Wesley Edwin Smith (31 YOA) was arrested on scene and transported to the Pickens County Detention Center where he remains pending arrest warrants.

Detectives are actively investigating and further details will be released at a later time.

A booking photo of the suspect has been attached to this release.
