A Pierre man was arrested Sunday after a minor stabbing in the Chekker’s parking lot.
Pierre Police officers were called at 3:58 a.m. on a report of a 21-year-old male being stabbed in the shoulder area.
When officers arrived, the suspect, Randy Hairybird, 20, was gone, Pierre Police Capt. Elton Blemaster said.
But at 11:50 a.m. officers located him near Highland Avenue and Elizabeth Street.
“Once he saw the police car he took off running and was caught in a nearby alley,” he said.
Hairybird resisted arrest and allegedly spit in the face of one of the officers, Blemaster said.
Hairybird was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, assault by other to cause contact with bodily fluids, underage purchase or possession of alcohol and resisting arrest.
The victim’s stab wound was minor and did not require medical attention.
