Agents Investigate Pittsburg County Stabbing

OSBI investigators were requested by the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Department to assist with a stabbing that happened early Saturday morning. Deputies were called to 267 Deer Run Road in the Bucks of Gaines Creek Community north of McAlester after a man was stabbed and run over by a vehicle after a physical altercation at that address. The victim, 56-year-old John Edgar "Oscar" Young, ran into a wooded area near the crime scene before law enforcement arrived. Saturday at approximately 10 a.m., Young was located and transported by ambulance to a hospital in McAlester. From there, he was transported to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa. Agents and a member of the OSBI Crime Lab Response Unit spent many hours Saturday interviewing witnesses and processing the crime scene. Investigators have a suspect identified, but no one is under arrest at this time. The district attorney will determine what charges will be filed.
