Battenfield

The alleged victim was said to be working on a tire repair when he was stabbed in the neck by Lonnie Battenfield.

Felony charges were filed against Battenfield, 36, this week in Rogers County District Court.

The Claremore man is facing a felony count of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, after former felony conviction.

On May 8 a deputy was dispatched to an area hospital on reports of a stabbing, according to Rogers County Sheriff’s Office reports.

On scene the reported victim in the case told the deputy, “he was at a friend’s house in Foyil fixing one of his tires...He stated that he was working on the tire when the suspect, who was later identified as Battenfield, walked up behind him and wrapped his right arm around his neck. When Battenfield put his arm around the man’s neck, he had a knife up against the man’s neck.”

Battenfield ordered the man to the ground, then stabbed him in the neck, according to RCSO.

Law enforcement learned that a witness saw the blood and screamed and that Battenfield left the property.

“They finished the tire and [the victim] drove himself to the hospital,” according to RCSO.

Battenfield’s criminal record includes a previous charge of assault and battery on a police officer and multiple counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, for which he served prison time, according to RCSO.

Bond in this case has been set at $100,000 with a condition that he have no contact with the alleged victim and that he be required to wear a GPS monitor upon release.
