A South Carolina man was reportedly brutally beaten by his nephew after allegedly trying to rape the nephew’s girlfriend.
According to WIS TV, local police found 52-year-old William Mattson bloody and battered at a Conway, South Carolina, home on Thursday.
PIX11 reports that the nephew walked in on Mattson “on top of his girlfriend.” That is when the attack occurred - culminating with the beating that can clearly be seen in Mattson’s mugshot picture.
The nephew was not charged because he was reportedly “acting in defense for the victim."
Mattson was arrested, taken to J. Reuben Long Detention Center and ultimately charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
