STANTON — A 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.
