Domestic dispute results in scissor attack

Authorities responded to calls regarding domestic disturbance to a Chestnut Street apartment in Rock Hill at around 5:50 a.m. on July 26, the Herald Online reported.

The police found 50-year-old Harold Fitzgerald Roddey in the street on their way to the apartment, who said he was stabbed with scissors by his 42-year-old girlfriend Tarasha Denton after an argument ultimately got physical. The police officers reported seeing a puncture wound in Roddey’s arm. According to Roddey, Denton became angry upon finding out that he had another woman in the apartment.

Police investigators searched for Denton and found her at a house across the street. Upon being questioned about the incident, Denton said she did not stab Roddey. Denton was charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and was taken into police custody on the spot.
