Stabbing charges were recently dismissed for a McAlester man.
On Aug. 3, a charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon was dismissed for 38-year-old Jarred Polansky.
In November, McAlester resident Tommy J. Sommer was stabbed in the 1200 block of East Polk Avenue in McAlester. Sommer “walked to McAlester Regional and was later transported to a Tulsa hospital,” according to McAlester Det. Capt. Gary Wansick. Sommer had cuts to his neck and arms.
Hospital staff notified police and McAlester detectives then arrived at MRHC, where they interviewed a witness. “Through their investigation, they were able to locate additional witnesses, determine a suspect and develop a probable cause for arrest,” Wansick said.
Polansky was charged on Nov. 30, 2011, and the charge was later dismissed on a motion of the District 18 District Attorney’s office.
