A South Carolina woman is recovering in a Charlotte hospital after deputies say she was attacked and stabbed with the sword of a walking cane by her husband.
According to a York County Sheriff's report, the incident happened around 1:13 a.m. Wednesday morning along the 1700 block of Ginn Road in McConnells.
Deputies say they received a 911 call from Gercene Loretta Perry who told dispatchers that her husband was trying to stab her. That's when 911 operators say Perry "began screaming and put the phone down." Investigators say three other family members were in the home.
"I just heard 'help, I'm being stabbed. I'm bleeding, help.' When I finally woke up, that's when I jumped up and I kind of panicked. " Investigators say Perry left the house and took off walking down the road," said Caprisha Davis, Gercene Perry's niece.
The operator told deputies that in the background of the call they could hear a voice yelling that someone had been stabbed in the stomach.
"W all jumped up and came out and we just seen a trail of blood leaving from the door to her bedroom and she was sitting on her bed and telling us to call 911," said Davis.
When deputies arrived to the scene, they found Phillip Perry walking along Ginn Road. He reportedly threw himself on the ground on the side of the road and was taken into custody by deputies.
According to the report, Perry had a large amount of blood on his clothing and had injuries to his left hand and head.
When the deputies arrived at the home, Gercene Perry's daughter told deputies that her mother had been stabbed. Perry's niece was found outside the master bedroom with a large chef's knife, guarding the door.
She put down the knife as deputies approached, according to the report.
Perry, who was in the bedroom, told deputies that she was sleeping when Phillip Perry came into her bedroom with a sword that was disguised as a walking cane. She stated that while she was lying in the bed, he struck her in a chopping motion.
Perry told deputies that she attempted to fight him and was able to strike him with the scabbard of the sword over the head.
That's when she says he stabbed her in the stomach with the sword. He then ran from the home and attempted to get to his car, which deputies say was parked down the street.
Perry was transported to Carolinas Medical Center-Main, in Charlotte, to be treated for her injuries.
Along with several adults, Perry's four-year-old granddaughter was also in the home while she was being attacked, deputies say.
Perry is charged with attempted murder. He's being held without bond.
