Charleston County man punched father, attacked another man with a knife, deputies say

Rickie Haselden

A Mount Pleasant man is in jail after deputies said he punched his father and went after another man with a knife Saturday night.

Rickie Derrell Haselden, 27, of Heritage Circle was charged with first-degree assault and battery, third-degree assault and battery and kidnapping. He also had prior warrants charging him with first-degree assault and battery, strong-arm robbery and grand larceny of a motor vehicle.

Shortly before 7 p.m., Charleston County deputies were sent to Halfway Creek Road in Huger to check out a report of a stabbing, according to the incident report. Deputies said they saw Haselden driving away in a silver-colored pickup truck, chased him down when he tried to run and detained him for questioning.

Haselden’s 54-year-old father said his son punched him in the face and tried to drive off in his truck. Deputies reported the father had a cut lip and told them he ran into the forest near the house to hide after his son attacked him.

A 28-year-old neighbor told deputies that Haselden chased him with a knife and held it against his throat until he was able to break free and also run into the forest.

Haselden was being held on Monday in the Charleston County jail on $212,505 bail.
