A son allegedly stabbed his father in the arm on Saturday and is being sought for the assault.
The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Department reported a deputy was called to a residence on State Highway 101 at about 5 p.m. about an assault and battery at the residence. The deputy spoke with Patrick Mitchell who reported he had been stabbed in the left arm by his son, Jeremy. According to the deputy's report, Patrick Mitchell said he came out of his son's home when his son came out from the residence next door. Patrick Mitchell said Jeremy yelled at him, "Where is the party?" and started walking toward him. Patrick Mitchell said that, since he and his son have had trouble in the past, he got in his vehicle, rolled up the windows and locked the doors. But, he reported, Jeremy broke the driver's side window with his fist and stabbed his father in the arm. Patrick Mitchell reported Jeremy yelled he was going to kill him. Patrick Mitchell then started the vehicle and backed out of the driveway, as Jeremy chased him. Patrick Mitchell said he drove to another residence and called 911.
The deputy also spoke with a nearby witness who confirmed the story. He said he heard glass break, and saw Jeremy Mitchell chasing Patrick Mitchell, who was in a vehicle and backing out of the driveway of the residence. The deputy looked for Jeremy Mitchell but was unable to locate him. The deputy reported Patrick Mitchell had a one-inch stab wound to the upper left arm. Sheriff Ron Lockhart said a warrant will most likely be issued for Jeremy Mitchell's arrest.
