Robbery suspect accused of assaulting elderly man

Man stabs woman trying to deflate her airbag


An Urbana man is accused of stabbing a woman while trying to pop her airbag with a knife following a traffic accident.

The 31-year-old allegedly struck the woman's vehicle when he ran a red light around 2 a.m. Feb. 20 at Upper Valley Pike and Saint Paris Pike. He told police he was texting while driving, but later failed a sobriety test, according to police.

Immediately after the accident, he approached the victim's vehicle and told her "he needed to pop her deployed airbag," according to a police report. While trying to deflate the airbag, he stabbed her in the thigh with his knife. He then tried to pull her out of the vehicle by her leg even though she objected. The woman was admitted to Springfield Regional Hospital.

The man was charged with aggravated vehicular assault, negligent assault and OVI. He pleaded not guilty at an arraignment today in Clark County Municipal Court.
