Accused stabber sought by the law
Law enforcement is on the lookout for a 34-year-old Comanche man accused of a December stabbing in Stephens County.
The Stephens County District Court issued a felony arrest warrant for Dustin Scott Mooney for an allegation of battery with a dangerous weapon after former conviction of two more felonies, records indicate. Due to his prior convictions, he faces between 20 years to life in prison if convicted.
Mooney is accused of stabbing a man on Dec. 16 and leaving him in need of 14 stitches to close the wound, according to the court affidavit.
Duncan police were called around 1:40 a.m. that morning to Duncan Regional Hospital regarding a stabbing victim. The man suffered a stab wound on his left side below the armpit that was 1.5 cm wide.
The injured man told Detective James Egger that he’d been at a convenience store at 908 S. U.S. 81, and his brother and two other men went inside at the same time. Once the brothers were together in the vehicle to leave, the two other men were walking in the middle of the roadway and began to yell and cuss at them until they stopped their vehicle. The victim said he and his brother didn’t want any trouble. One man approached in an aggressive manner and was punched by the victim. That’s when, the victim said, Mooney approached. When the victim pushed Mooney backwards, Mooney took off running. That’s when, according to the affidavit, the man realized he’d been stabbed.
