STILLWATER, Okla. — A Stillwater man was in critical condition at OU Medical Center Monday after he was stabbed multiple times during a Friday night assault near Stillwater.

According to the Payne County Sheriff’s Office’s probable cause affidavit, the assault was the result of a marijuana sale gone sour.

Stillwater Police and LifeNet Ambulance responded to an automotive repair store in the 100 block of Perkins Road at approximately 3 a.m. Friday where they found two stabbing victims in a gold pickup.

The victims, Steven Wayne Kent and Christopher Blundell, were hospitalized. Kent is in critical condition at OU Medical Center, while Blundell was treated and released for stab wounds to his back at Stillwater Medical Center’s emergency room.

A third person in the gold truck, identified in the affidavit as Michael Hardin, told law enforcement officers that Kent went into an apartment on East Redbud Lane to purchase marijuana. After 15 minutes, Kent left the apartment, telling Hardin he wouldn’t buy anything from the suspects.

A few minutes later, a white pickup started chasing the gold one on North Perkins Road, according to the affidavit. It forced the gold pickup to stop on Lone Chimney Road. A fight ensued.

During the fight, an 18-year old Stillwater resident identified as Alexander D. Hutson and Jordan Robinson in the affidavit, fought with  Kent and Blundell.

According to the affidavit, Robinson stabbed Kent and Blundell.

Hutson was arrested. Charges haven’t been filed in Payne County District Court, but the probable cause affidavit lists anticipated charges as assault, battery or assault and battery with any sharp or dangerous weapon.
