RAY COUNTY, Mo. — Bond is set at $100,000 for a Richmond man accused of threatening to stab a victim with a knife in Orrick on Monday.
According to a probable cause statement filed in Ray County Tuesday, Ray County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a residence on North Creason Street in Orrick Monday around 2:40 p.m. after Andrew Leon Sutton, 18 allegedly threatened to stab a man.
Witnesses at the scene told investigators that Sutton threatened to stab a man when he arrived at the residence and bystanders held Sutton down in order to avoid conflict.
Deputies were also advised that Sutton had allegedly threatened a woman with a knife the evening prior.
Officers reviewed text messages between one of the victims and Sutton, which appeared to show Sutton encouraging a person to harm themselves and threatening to stab the father of one of the victims.
The female victim told investigators when she had been threatened with a knife the night before, she was forced to lock him out of her residence.
Sutton is formally charged with felonies for first degree domestic assault and armed criminal action and a misdemeanor for property damage in the second degree.
Sutton is currently held at the Ray County Jail on $100,000 cash only bond. Future court dates have not yet been set.
