Clyde Stamp, 51, of Gore was charged January 8 in Sequoyah County District Court with one felony count of assault, battery, or assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
On January 4 the Sequoyah County Sheriff's department responded to a call at a residence in Gore in response to a possible stabbing. Upon arriving at the scene the deputy found Eric Kevitt holding his chest and observed blood on Kevitt's shirt and pants. Kevitt advised that he had been stabbed by his roommate.
While the deputy was interviewing Kevitt, the roommate, Clyde Stamp, "staggered" out of the residence according to the police statement. He was handcuffed and placed in a patrol car.
Kevitt informed deputies that he and Stamp had both been drinking and were arguing over money when Stamp stabbed him in the chest with a knife.
When officers entered the residence they found an open multi-tool lying on the kitchen floor with the knife blade open. The knife was taken into evidence.
Kevitt's wound was examined by EMS and found to not be life threatening. Kevitt refused to go to hospital but was treated at the scene.
Stamp was placed under arrest and transported to the Sequoyah County jail. He is scheduled to appear Feb. 6 on Judge Waters felony disposition docket.
The charge is punishable by imprisonment for up to 10 years in the penitentiary or one year in the county jail.
