06/20/2014 - Sheriff's Office Searching for Stabbing Suspect

Earlier today deputies responded to 308 Lilly Lane in the Lyman community to check on the welfare of a female resident at this address. While in route to this address deputies were advised that the call had been upgraded to a stabbing. An investigation of this incident by the Sheriff’s Office Violent Crimes Unit identified Christopher Allen Middleton as the suspect in this case. Mr. Middleton is 43 years old, stands 5’9” tall and weighs approximately 220. He is bald with some facial hair and was last seen running from the residence wearing a yellow in color hoodie, white shirt and green shorts. Mr. Middleton is the husband of the victim. The complainant told deputies that the victim and Mr. Middleton had been arguing since last night. The topic of the argument and what motivated Mr. Middleton to stab his wife is not known at this time.

A Spartanburg County Magistrate has issued two warrants for the arrest of Mr. Middleton on one count each of Attempted Murder and Possession of a Weapon during a Violent Crime. If anyone has any information about where Mr. Christopher Allen Middleton can be located they are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1.888.CRIME.SC.
