ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - 47-year-old Darrell Florez was arrested for Assault and Battery with a Deadly Weapon after police say he stabbed someone Wednesday night.
Police say the incident happened on North Washington Street near Second Street.
The victim was stabbed twice.
A pastor at a church near where the incident happened tells us he saw the cop lights flashing from outside while he was in the middle of a bible study service.
He tells us he had a church member guard the door to make sure no one came in and that the kids stayed safe inside.
"When you live in any kind of part of a town that has some rough edges around it, the reality is when something goes down, you need to back away," Jim Yeager said. "When you back away it allows the police to do what they are going to do."
Police tell us the victim is being treated at a local hospital.
