Several Sapulpa area law enforcement agencies were busy late Sunday night and early Monday morning with a stand-off and stabbing that sent one victim to the hospital.

It happened in Sapulpa. The call came in around 8 o'clock Sunday night and ended more than three hours later.

Authorities were told the stabbing suspect had locked himself in a house near Denton and North Ross in Sapulpa. Authorities tried to make contact with the suspect, but didn't get any response. Sapulpa special ops teams went in but found that the house was empty. Two witnesses were taken into custody for questioning, but Sapulpa Police caught the suspect early Monday morning when he tried to sneak back into the house. The suspect has been identified as Roy Allen Reed.

He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon. The victim was stabbed once in the chest. He was taken to a Tulsa hospital. It's believed his wounds are not life threatening.
