Police Investigate Stabbing In Jasper County

Posted: Updated:
Jasper County, S.C. -

Sakeria Fulton, 35, of Walterboro is recovering from being stabbed as she worked her evening shift at the BP gas station in Point View, police say.

Family members, Fulton's co-worker, and the Jasper County Sheriff's Office says the suspect of the alleged attack is Warren Fulton, Sakeria Fulton's husband.

"It wasn't just someone who just came in and went on a stabbing spree," Laura Taylor says.

Taylor works with Fulton at the Point View BP station just off of Interstate 95. She says it's surreal to think a loved one could be driven to do such a thing.

"It was weird because I was just on the phone with her and then she hung up. I texted her back and I never heard back," says Taylor.

Fulton's family agrees. They say even though the couple had been separated, they didn't think the estranged husband would go as far as attempting to make good on threats to kill his wife.

"He's been harassing and threatening to kill her but nobody actually thought he'd do it," says Fulton's cousin, Kenyetta Jackson.

Fortunately, Fulton is recovering in the hospital now.

"I pray she will just continue to make a swift recovery and she'll be okay," says Jackson.

Jackson hopes some good will come out of the attack, even if it means raising awareness for domestic violence. She says she reads about domestic disputes statewide too frequently.

"There are lots of violence and even stalking cases. So maybe because of this, some good can come out of it," says Jackson.

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office says they are searching for Warren Fulton. If you have any information on his whereabouts, they urge you to call 1-888-CRIMESC or (843)726-7519.
