Knife assault suspect faces felony complaint

EDMOND — An Edmond man who allegedly stabbed another man with a box cutter faces a felony assault complaint, according to an incident report.

Wednesday evening, Edmond Police Officer Neil Martin responded to a call regarding an individual armed with a knife at a mobile home park at 301 W. Dennis, according to the report filed by Martin.

Dispatch advised the suspect had been in a physical altercation at the park and was walking to his mobile home wearing a Braum’s uniform, Martin stated.

He found the suspect sitting on his porch and detained him at gunpoint after he was non-compliant, Martin stated. At the time, the suspect had an orange and silver box cutter-style folding knife clipped to his right pocket, the officer stated.

A witness said the suspect had been using her washer and dryer recently and staying at her mobile home since his was locked due to alleged non-payment, Martin stated.

Due to his conduct that day, she asked him to leave and he became defiant, Martin stated. She contacted a third party and they asked the suspect to vacate the mobile home, the officer stated.

An unidentified male grabbed the suspect lightly and told him he needed to leave, Martin stated. During the ensuing moments, the suspect allegedly produced the box cutter and stabbed the male in the hand, the officer stated.

The injured male “bear hugged” the suspect who continued to try to stab him but didn’t as the victim was trying to restrain his arm, Martin stated. The suspect refused to surrender the knife and eventually left out the front door and returned to his home, the officer stated.

Martin stated he saw a wound on the victim’s hand consistent with a knife strike. The knife described by the victims matched the knife the officer located in the suspect’s pocket, the officer stated in his report.

Due to the victims not being able to write in English he did not have them write a statement, Martin stated. A fellow officer obtained a statement from a witness and gave it to Martin.

At the Edmond Police station, a jailer located a broken pill in the suspect’s pocket that appeared to be hydrocodone, a controlled Schedule III narcotic, Martin stated.

Hydrocodone is the most frequently prescribed opioid in the U.S. and is associated with more drug abuse and diversion than any other licit or illicit opioid, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

Jacob Edwin Young, 22, of Edmond, was arrested on complaints of felony assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance, Martin stated. He was booked into Oklahoma County jail and was being held on a bond of $8,000, according to jail records.

Defense attorney information was not available Thursday afternoon.

  • Warmth needed to grow tomatoes

    The time for those growing tomatoes in their garden is when the soil temperature is above 60°F and fear of frost has past. We are generally safe from frosts after April 5.  However, frosts have occurred as late as May 1 in the Oklahoma City area. If you planted your tomatoes on or before April 5 last year you would have covered them several times as there were several late frosts. If you plant early, be ready to cover your plants during nighttime frosts.

    The Prague sequence of 2011 along the Wilzetta Fault zone included a significant foreshock, a main shock of magnitude 5.7 and numerous aftershocks. It has been suggested that this sequence represents tremors triggered by fluid injection.

Do you agree with a state budget proposal that takes some funds away from road and bridge projects to ramp up education funding by $29.85 million per year until schools are receiving $600 million more a year than they are now? In years in which 1 percent revenue growth does not occur in the general fund, the transfer would not take place.
