DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Alcohol may have played a role in an altercation where a Dayton man was stabbed with a fork Tuesday night in Dayton.
According to the police report, the victim was bleeding from his back when officers arrived on scene. He pointed to another man and told officers “He stabbed me!”
The suspect, identified in the report as Robert Foucht, refused to cooperate with police and kept trying to pull something out of his pockets.
Police say they ordered Foucht to put his hands behind his back. When he didn’t, and continued to reach for something, an officer deployed his Taser.
The first shock didn’t subdue Foucht . The officer then used his Taser to give Foucht a drive stun to his neck and shoulder area. When he continued to resist, officers gave him a third.
When that did not work, officers turned to pepper spray to subdue him. He continued to struggle. Officers eventually gained control and Foucht was able to walk to the police cruiser.
Meanwhile, Foucht told officers the victim, Ricky Perry, began punching him during an argument and he simply grabbed the fork to defend himself.
Officers took both men into custody.
The report notes officers determined both men had the smell of alcohol on their breath.
