A South Carolina police chief was reportedly stabbed beneath the eye with an ice pick at his home on Monday.
Bonneau Police Chief Franco Fuda said he answered a knock at his door and was greeted by a suspect who said the chief was “going to die today,” according to WCIV.
The man, who was later identified as Forrest Bowman, allegedly thrust an ice pick into Fuda’s face and fled the scene.

Bowman was reportedly arrested after a standoff at his mobile home.
A tactical law enforcement team deployed a robot and gassed Bowman to bring him into custody.
Bowman was naked and screaming when a SWAT team apprehended him.
The alleged stabber faces attempted murder charges and a local judge has denied bond in the case.
