A South Carolina police chief was reportedly stabbed beneath the eye with an icepick at his own 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,” local police told ABC 4. The man, who was later identified as Forrest Bowman, allegedly thrust an icepick into Fuda’s face and fled the scene, the local outlet reported.
