A Liberty County man was rushed to the hospital Sunday afternoon after he was stabbed during a domestic dispute.
According to Liberty County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Grant Porter’s incident report, he responded to a call in the 400 block of Live Oak Church Road and found Lewis Varnedoe, 32, suffering from a stab wound to the chest, allegedly inflicted by his girlfriend, Rebecca Daniels, 37.
Varnedoe told Porter that Daniels became angry with him because he had been drinking alcohol early in the day. The victim, according to the report, had been stabbed around 11 a.m. but did not call authorities because he did not think the wound was serious enough to require treatment. Meanwhile, Daniels allegedly fled the scene and, according to Detective Julie Buttress, is being sought for aggravated assault.
According to the report, a friend of Varnedoe’s became concerned about the wound and contacted his sister, who called 911 to report the stabbing around 1 p.m.
Varnedoe was taken to Liberty Regional Medical Center in Hinesville, where he was treated and released, according to Buttress.
