Muldrow man charged with assault following stabbing
Wednesday, May 11, 2022 - A Muldrow man was arrested April 23 and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to court documents.
Glen Lawson Howard, 72, could face up to 10 years in the State Penitentiary if he is convicted. He was also charged with public intoxication, a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in the county jail, a fine of up to $500 or both. His bond was set at $10,500.
On April 23, Sallisaw police officers were dispatched to the Blue Ribbon Inn, 706 S. Kerr, for a possible stabbing. The reporting party told law enforcement she saw two men arguing while walking out of the tree line northeast of her room. She said one of the men was wearing a red jacket and the other,
identified as Howard, was older, with gray hair and beard and wearing a black T-shirt and jeans.
At one point the younger man lifted his shirt and yelled, “You stabbed me!” at the older man. The stabbing victim then grabbed at the right side of his chest and leaned over. Childers then said the older man apologized and then said, “You can kill me; I’d die for you.”
The woman went to retrieve her cell phone, and when she returned, the younger man was lying in the motel’s parking lot and yelling. She then called police.
The woman told officers that the older man had fled into a tree line that is a commonly known homeless encampment.
The officers walked through the encampment, where they located Howard. Howard complied with officers’ commands and he was arrested.
