The attack occurred Sept. 9 in the 700 block of Zimalcrest Drive in Columbia, according to the sheriff’s department. That is located near the intersection of St. Andrews Road and Broad River Road.

The chainsaw “was not operating” at the time of the incident, said Amanda Jordan, a public information liaison for the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.

Burgess is wanted for first-degree assault & battery, the sheriff’s department reported.
