NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC)- North Charleston police arrested a man early Sunday accused of attacking his parents with a hammer and knife.

According to a police report, officers responded to an assault call at a home in the 7700 block of Suzanne Drive just before 3 a.m. When they arrived, the 44-year-old and 47-year-old victims said their son, 22-year-old Taylor Montre Williams, had just pummeled them with a hammer.

Williams' father said Williams repeatedly struck his mother in the left arm with a hammer. The father also said Williams struck him in the back of the head with the hammer.

The dad also said Williams had a knife at one point and was swinging it at them. Officers noted a severe laceration to the back of the father's head and severe injuries to the mother's arm.

While officers were on scene, they saw Williams standing across the street, on Purcell Drive. Police arrested him and took him to the Charleston County Detention Center.

Williams was charged with two counts of attempted murder. He was issued a $200,000 bond on Monday morning.
