Charges have been filed against a Lebanon man who allegedly stabbed another man multiple times during an altercation last weekend.
Brandon Allen Moore, 28, of Lebanon, is charged with a class A felony of assault in the first degree and felony armed criminal action. Moore is being held in the Laclede County Jail in lieu of a $250,000 cash-or-surety bond, according to online court records.
At about 2:02 a.m. Nov. 24, Laclede County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to Mercy Hospital Lebanon to investigate a reported stabbing. A 36-year-old Lebanon man had been brought to the hospital by friends to be treated for multiple stab wounds that he allegedly received during a fight with Moore, according to a probable cause statement released by the Laclede County Prosecuting Attorney today.
The victim, who was in “critical” condition, was flown from Lebanon to Mercy Hospital Springfield for surgery. The man’s injuries consisted of multiple stab wounds to his back totaling 35 centimeters in length, a stab wound to the right side of his neck, a stab wound to his upper left arm, a collapsed right lung and a minor laceration to his liver, the statement said.
Two days later, a detective was able to speak to the victim while he was at the Springfield hospital. The man told the detective that on the night of the stabbing, he got a ride from two men to go to a woman’s residence on Park Ridge Lane. The woman had texted him, asking him to help her carry in some firewood.
After helping the woman with the firewood, he went inside the home and saw his ex-girlfriend’s purse and phone. The man picked up the phone and then got into an argument with Moore, who was already at the home when he arrived. As the man was walking out the front door, he was allegedly struck in the back by Moore, according to the statement.
