May 27, 2019

After almost a year, Aiken Public Safety has charged an Aiken woman wanted for her involvement a May 2018 stabbing.

Sheronda Dionne Fuller, 43, of the 500 block of Hampton Avenue, is charged with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, according to jail records.

On May 31, 2018, officers responded to the 500 block of Hampton Avenue around 6 p.m. in reference to a stabbing, according to the report.

Once on scene, officers found a 55-year-old woman lying on the floor inside the house holding a “blood-soaked rag” up to her neck, police reported.

The victim was reportedly “conscious,” and managed to tell officers that she had been walking to the front of the house when Fuller came from behind and started stabbing her in her neck with medium-sized kitchen knife, the report states.

Investigators asked the victim what had happened between her and Fuller that led to the incident, but the victim refused to go into detail, officers said.

The victim did tell officers she had known Fuller for a long time and had had issues with her in the past, the report states.

EMS transported the victim to a nearby hospital for treatment after seeing she had a “severe puncture wound on the back side of her neck and a gash on the right side of her chin,” according to the report.

Officers searched the area for Fuller at the time, but were unsuccessful locating her.

Following the investigation, a warrant was issued for Fuller’s arrest on May 31, 2018.

After evading police custody for nearly a year, Fuller turned herself in to police Wednesday at Aiken Public Safety headquarters, the report states.

She was taken to the Aiken County detention center where she was still being held Thursday afternoon.
