Approximately 4 p.m., deputies responded to David’s Barber Shop at 837 East Boundary where victim Larry Williams, 52, had gone for help after being stabbed in the neck, according to Richmond County Sgt. Michael McDaniel in a news release.

Williams told deputies he was standing on the 700 block of East Boundary arguing with suspect Donald Bernard Hayes, 54, about a woman when a fight ensued.

During the altercation, Hayes is reported to have stabbed Williams in the neck, McDaniel stated in the release.

After being stabbed, Williams walked to David’s Barber Shop for help. Williams was transported to Georgia Regents Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, according to the release.
