Man in Wheelchair Shot By Cops Now Faces Assault Charges

The 55-year-old man in a wheelchair who police shot last week after he stabbed an officer with a knife is now facing charges of assault with a deadly weapon. 

On Jan. 4, at about 10:20 a.m., police received calls about reports of a man in a wheelchair who had been yelling and stabbing the tires of city vehicles on 10th and Howard Streets. When police arrived they found Randal Dunklin with a buck knife and a large piece of cement. 
Police ordered the man, who was described as “highly agitated” to put down the knife.
