A Durant man is accused of attacking another man with a butcher knife after an argument.

Jermaine Antwon Bean, 28, was charged last week with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

He is accused of stabbing Jorge Barrientos-Canales on Tuesday.

Durant Police Lt. Carrie Wyrick was dispatched at 4:02 a.m. to a residence in the 1400 block of West Alabama Street, and when she arrived, witnesses said the suspect ran southbound, according to an affidavit, and the victim was brought out onto the porch.

He had four one-to-one-and-a-half-inch lacerations to his back and the back of his neck, the affidavits states, and he was taken to the Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma to be treated for his injuries.

Witnesses said the incident happened after an argument and that Bean grabbed a large butcher knife from the kitchen and chased Barrientos-Canales, the affidavit states, and later stabbed him several times.

Wyrick observed stab marks on a bedroom door and a large amount of blood on kitchen floor.

In other crimes, John Thomas Phipps, 31, Durant, was charged Thursday with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. According to court papers, he was arrested Wednesday by Durant Police in the 900 block of West Main Street.

Phipps pleaded no contest last month to charges of possession of methamphetamine and was given a seven-year deferred sentence.
