B1 -B4 75’ Man accused of holding knife to woman By Patti Weaver Joumal Correspondent A rural Perkins man -- accused of holding a knife to a woman's throat, threatening to kill her if she called police and elud- ing two sheriff's deputies -- remained jailed Tuesday on $50,000 bail after being spotted by Perkins police Sunday. John Edwin Pricer, 49, could be incarcerated for more than 11 years if con- victed of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, making threats to kill and eluding an officer, all on Sunday, according to a three-count charge filed Monday. The alleged incident involving a 43-year-old Stillwater woman started at Pricer's rural Perkins residence located in Lincoln County, Payne County Undersheriff Garry McKinnis told the Journal Tuesday. "The assault occurred in Payne County while they were traveling between here and there in his car," McKinnis said. "He dropped her off at her home in Stillwater. We were dispatched at 8: 30 a.m. Sunday," McKin- nis said. Pricer is alleged to have held a knife to the throat of the woman who suffered lacerations to her right hand while trying to get the knife away, according to the felony count filed by Payne County prosecutor Jill Tontz. The woman was also reported to have three broken ribs and a minor concussion, the Payne County undersheriff said. Lincoln County authori- ties have asked that Pricer be held for them while they investigate alleged domes- tic violence there, the Payne County undersheriff said. Pricer allegedly eluded Payne County Sheriff's Deputies Dustin Chadwell and Jared Noles by accel- erating his vehicle to 75 m.p.h, and failing to stop at a stop sign on a county road near Vinco, the under- sheriff said. Perkins Police Chief Robert Williams said, "After some checking, it was determined that he was dropped off at the intersec- tion of Main and Thomas here in Perkins and was last seen leaving the OnCue 1 downtown westbound. "I was called and I authorized Sgt. Collier to call out additional officers to assist in the search and my understanding is that our K9 Handler, Dewayne Hammack, located him walking down the street in the area of First and W. Freeman." Pricer "was picked up by Perkins police Sunday at 2 p.m.," the Payne County undersheriff said. Payne County court records show that Pricer was charged in 1992 with assault and battery in Per- kins on another woman, who alleged in an affidavit that he threatened to kill her and slapped her so hard that she ended up on a kitchen table. "Then he looked on the kitchen table, saw a butcher knife and picked it up and held it to my face and said, 'In fact this is the perfect time to kill you. You know ! can do it,'" the alleged in an affidavit filed in 1992. "He walked out of the kitchen to the living room. I was on the floor by the sink: He turned around fast and ran back with the knife and raised his ann up as if he was gonna throw it at me," she alleged in her affidavit filed in 1992. After threatening he r again, "He then turned around and threw the knife into the bedroom and went out the front door and came right back in and told me to not get up until he left," she alleged in her affidavit. Pricer subsequently pleaded guilty to a misde- meanor charge of assault and battery onthat woman for which he was placed on six months' probation in 1992, court records show.
