Fort Mill father accused of trying to suffocate child

- A Fort Mill man is accused of trying to suffocate his one-year-old child, according to the Fort Mill police department. 

Grayson Bryant Seawell, 21, has been charged with two counts of unlawful conduct towards a child and one county of attempted murder. 

On Tuesday officers responded to 922 Murphy Court in reference to the assault of a child. Upon arrival, officers learned that the child's mother found Seawell attempting to suffocate the child. Seawell fled the residence, but was found nearby and taken into custody. Further investigation revealed that Seawell had previously abused both of his one-year-old children, but no specific dates were given. 

Seawell is being held at the York County Detention Center and has been denied bond on all charges. 

If convicted, he could face maximum sentences of 30 years for attempted murder, and 10 years on each of the unlawful conduct towards a child charges.
