Officers booked Jimmy Dale Briggs Jr. on complaints of assault and battery with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, first degree burglary and threatening to perform violent acts to a police officer and family, according to the Tahlequah Daily Press.

Briggs broke into a room at the Oak Park Motel at 706 East Downing Street and stabbed a man repeatedly in the face, neck and back with a syringe, according to police.
