Salisbury Post:

Sampson and Thomas told police that Scott yelled at them and threatened them, and when he approached them at the gate, he hit Thomas in the face.

Sampson ran over to help, but he fell to the ground when Scott reportedly came at him with the knife. Police say Scott stabbed Sampson in the leg, cutting a gash that was 4 to 5 inches long.

When Thomas turned to leave, Scott ran up to him with a broken glass bottle and hit him with it, according to the police report. Thomas was cut under his lip, and one of his teeth was broken.


Sampson and Thomas went to a hospital and are recovering from their injuries.

Scott was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
