Warrant issued for Ada man accused of attacking people with box cutter
ADA, Okla. (KXII) - The Ada Police Department is searching for a man who they said attacked two people with a box cutter.
Police said Dalton K. Swartz has a warrant for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Sergeant Michael Meeks said officers got a 911 call from someone who heard an argument at a house on West 7th street in Ada. When the officers arrived, two people were bleeding from stab wounds.
“When I arrived on scene there had been two people transported to a local hospital, one of them eventually went to a OU trauma center with serious injuries resulting from a stabbing,” Meeks said. “The suspect, Dalton Swartz, had already fled the scene along with three other people.”
Meeks said it started out with an argument between two sisters that turned into a physical fight the night of November 10th.
“They got physically involved,” Meeks said. “Dalton got in the mix with that and during that altercation he pulled a knife and got one of the sisters on the forearm. The male victim tried to intervene in that and subsequently he got stabbed also.”
Meeks said both the sister and boyfriend were taken to the hospital for severe injuries caused by the stabbings. The boyfriend was flown to an Oklahoma City hospital and kept overnight, but he and the sister have since been released.
The suspect has disappeared.
“He possibly could be still in this area,” Meeks said. “We will extradite.”
Ada police now have a felony warrant out for Swartz.
Police said if you see Swartz do not approach him, instead call your local police department.
If you have any information on his whereabouts contact Sgt. Meeks at 580-436-6300 or Crime Stoppers at 580-33-CATCH, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
