STANTON — A Greenville man is facing three charges after an alleged stabbing at the Wesco gas station in Greenville on Sunday.

Eric Tett, 27, was arraigned Monday afternoon on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder and vehicle tampering.

He is scheduled to appear in 64B District Court in Stanton for a pretrial hearing at 1 p.m. Monday. Tett stabbed a 17-year-old Greenville boy at the Wesco, located at the corner of Franklin and Washington streets, during an altercation around 4:20 p.m. Sunday, according to the Greenville Department of Public Safety.

Another teen also was assaulted but not injured in the fight.

Tett allegedly fled the scene in a vehicle before police arrived on the scene. Officers arrested him at his residence a short time later after investigating the incident.

Family members transported the stabbing victim to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries Sunday afternoon.

The motive behind the incident still is not clear.
