BRISTOL — A Bristol man was hospitalized with serious injuries following a brutal Sunday assault in far northeast Sullivan County, while three of his four alleged attackers now face charges of attempted murder.

Two of the suspects were apprehended Tuesday night, while the other two — including the father of the victim's fiancee— remain at large.

A police report at the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says the incident occurred at 809 Wyatt Hollow Road, the residence of both the victim and two of the suspects. At approximately 4:40 a.m., officers responding to the scene — east of South Holston Lake in the Cherokee National Forest — were flagged down by individuals in a vehicle.
