An assault by vehicle led to charges Thursday against a man in Richland County.
The Richland County Sheriff's Department charged Raymundo Ortiz, 18, with attempted murder in the incident, in which the victim was put in the hospital in critical condition.
According to investigators:
Two men, one of them identified by witnesses as Ortiz, got into a fight around 7:40 a.m. July 11 at 7201 Hunt Club Road. After the unnamed man lunged at Ortiz with a knife, Ortiz is accused of leaving in a sports utility vehicle, in which he then returned and used to hit the victim.
The suspect then left the scene but turned himself in Thursday.
