A 32-year-old man was arrested late Monday night and charged with aggravated assault following an incident on Johnson Avenue where he reportedly stabbed two brothers, injuring both.
Kevin Claude Frasier, of 189 Muddy Branch Road, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of assault under domestic violence, possession of Schedule VI narcotics (marijuana) and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Elizabethton Police Department Ptl. Tonya Range responded to the residence at 518 Johnson Avenue and spoke with Kevin Hicks, age 40, of that residence and his brother, Gregory Hicks, age 38, who resides on Pine Ridge Circle, and both men advised that they had been assaulted by Fraiser.
"The subjects advised that a Marcy Thomas had arrived at their residence approximately 15 minutes before Mr. Frasier," Range said. "The Hicks' subjects advised the female had arrived and stated Frasier had been hitting her." Range further states in her report that Kevin Hicks advised her that he only knew Thomas casually through a friend "years ago" and that neither he nor his brother knew Frasier.
According to the report, Kevin and Gregory Hicks told officers that Frasier arrived at the residence and walked in uninvited asking where Thomas was, and the brothers told him that she was in the back of the residence. "Frasier went in the back and according to (Kevin) Hicks, Marcy screamed and the Hicks brothers went to see what had happened," the report by Range states. "According to (Kevin) Hicks a struggle ensued, Frasier pulled a knife and stabbed both Kevin and Gregory."
Both Kevin and Gregory Hicks sustained stab wounds which required medical attention. Kevin Hicks sustained knife cuts to the left side of his face while Gregory Hicks sustained cuts to the upper left arm. Both brothers received stitches at Sycamore Shoals Hospital for their stab wounds. Further information on their condition was unavailable Tuesday night.
Frasier was arrested at a residence on Beech Street, where he fled after the altercation. Thomas, who is also known as Marcy Andes Matherly, was later located at a residence on Beech Street. According to the report, Thomas advised officers that she had been at the residence for approximately two hours when Frasier arrived. "Ms. Thomas-Matherly advised she and Frasier had been romantically involved for the past year and she and Kevin Hicks had been romantically involved for the past four months."
Thomas then reported to the officer that Frasier came to the residence and entered the back bedroom where she was sitting. "Ms. Thomas-Matherly stated Frasier struck her at which point Kevin Hicks attempted to intervene. Ms. Thomas-Matherly stated she started walking out of the residence because 'I knew something bad was going to happen.'"
At the time that officers spoke to Thomas about the incident, investigators observed redness and swelling on the lower part of her right cheek and jaw.
Officers and investigators working the case requested that warrants be issued charging Frasier with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of assault under domestic violence. When Frasier was taken into custody, he was found to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and was additionally charged with those offenses. He is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on Sept. 30.
