MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A man has been charged after police say another man died following an attack at a Myrtle Beach restaurant.

Local media outlets report 32-year-old Philip Guderyon was charged Thursday with murder in connection with the death of 25-year-old Justin Hodges.

Police say officers were called around 12:34 a.m. Oct. 17 to Carlos ‘n’ Charlie’s at Broadway at the Beach to assist with a medical issue. Authorities say Hodges was taken to the hospital where it was discovered he suffered a “major head injury.” Hodges died Sunday.

Myrtle Beach police investigated and determined Hodges was the victim of an “unprovoked, ambush-style attack.”

Guderyon is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.

Police say the case is still under investigation.
