Anderson Man Stabbed in Head

A 61-year-old Anderson man was stabbed in the head Wednesday night, and the suspect eluded police until Thursday morning.  Shortly after 9 o'clock the victim was at a Highway 273 apartment complex apparently breaking up a fight between his grandson and 29-year-old Marc McClendon.  The victim said he had chased McClendon out of the apartment complex and as he was returning to his apartment, McClendon came up behind him and stabbed him in the back of the head.  He was transported to a hospital and is expected to recover.  A witness told Anderson Police that McClendon borrowed his cell phone to call his mother for help, saying he had stabbed someone.  Both the victim and the witness say McClendon fled in the direction of South Street.  Anderson Police, with a k-9 and help from deputies and a CHP helicopter, searched the area but did not find McClendon.  He turned himself in at the Anderson Police station and he was booked into jail on three felony charges.
