One Arrested, Two Sought in Beating of Saluda Man in Johnston

web posted July 30, 2013

JOHNSTON A Johnston man has been arrested following a July 12 attack on a Saluda man at the Ridge Road Apartments that left him treated at one hospital and then transferred to a second due to his head injuries. According to an incident report released on Monday, one of the three attackers picked up a brick and struck the victim in the head causing him to fall to the ground and then all three began kicking and hitting the victim in the head and face.

Charged so far in the incident is OBryan Devier Bussey, 26, of Johnston. He has been charged with assault and battery in the second degree. He was currently out on bond for a previous assault the week prior to the attack. He has also served a sentence of one year for an assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature charge in 2008. He was released on Sunday on a $3,000 Surety bond.

The other two men, who have been identified by Johnston Police, are currently wanted in the attack.

The victim was said to have been going to his car outside the apartment to get a beer when the attack took place. Witnesses helped identify the suspect.

According to the incident report, the victim suffered "bleeding on the brain" prior to being transported to a second hospital for treatment. That condition was later changed, although there is no further update on the victim's condition.

It is unknown why the report of the July 12 incident was not released sooner.

Edgefield Daily will have updates as more arrests are made in this case.

At press time, a request for a booking photo had not been honored.
