Domestic fight results in 2 knife wounds


A Chickasha resident's arm was sliced and another victim was stabbed Sept. 4 by an assailant with a knife.

Police responded to a call claiming two victims were stabbed with a knife at 904 1/2 W. Colorado Ave. Upon arrival, officers contacted Anthony Gardi, who said he had been "cut with a knife" by Troy Morgan, according to an incident report. 

Photos were taken of a laceration on Gardi's arm that was consistent with his story. 

"In a written statement Gardi advised that he and his roommate, Jimmy Chance Butler - second victim - were sitting in the front room of his home at which time Morgan forced his way inside the home," the report reads. "Gardi went on to advise that he (Gardi) punched Morgan in the face. Morgan did have injuries consistent with this. Gardi Went on to advise that he had to push Morgan out of his home and that at that time Morgan grabbed him knocking his glasses off. Gardi advised that Morgan started running down the alley and that he (Gardi) ran after him and tackled him."

Gardi said Morgan then put a knife around his throat. 

"Gardi advised that Morgan's friend, Charles "Cheeto" Wilson ran up to him and also put a knife to his throat," the report states. "Gardi advised that he yelled for Chance and that Chance ran up and grabbed "Cheeto" around his neck and pulled him to the ground. Gardi advised that Morgan attempted to cut his (Gardi's) throat, so he put his hand up to defend himself at which time Gardi was cut by Morgan. Gardi advised that he again punched Morgan in the face, and that he would then hear Chance yelling that he had been stabbed."
