The city’s police department says the stabbing occurred Wednesday evening at a Sonic. It ended with the arrest of another man who has been charged with felony maiming. Police say the pole entered the victim’s head beneath his jaw and exited the other side of his head near his right temple. The American flag was still attached the pole.
