Chesnee Man sentenced in violent assault cases
An Upstate Man has been sentenced to nearly two decades in the assault of two individuals.
30-year-old Aaron Seagraves plead guilty Tuesday to two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and resisting arrest in connection to the violent assaults of two individuals in 2020.
The 7th Circuit Solicitor's Office announced that Seagraves was sentenced to 18 years in prison followed by five years of probation.
According to the solicitor's office, the assaults occurred at a home on Chesnee in late March of 2020. Reports explain that one of the victims was repeatedly hit with a baseball bat while the other was stabbed multiple times with a knife.
Seagraves fled the scene and was found the next day hiding in a briar patch with a knife, where he was subdued and arrested.
