OKLAHOMA CITY -- Charges are filed against a man who allegedly went on a random stabbing spree in Oklahoma City.

Twenty-four-year-old Danny Gene Byars now faces four counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon and one count of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Byars was arrested last week after one of the stabbing victims identified him in a police photo lineup.

Police say Byars would randomly knock on doors between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m., and attack people when they answered the door. The victims told police they did not know the man who attacked them.
