Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched this past week to another stabbing at a residence in the 200 block of SE Bagley St. in Siletz. Deputy Gautney was in the area and arrived on scene and located an adult male subject inside of the residence with badly bleeding stab wounds to the head. Deputy Gautney escorted the subject to an ambulance that had arrived in the area. There were three other adult males inside the residence at the time of the stabbing.
The investigation revealed that Ricky Pharr, 58, of Siletz was in the residence with the other three males when he attacked the victim with two knives. After he stabbed the victim, Pharr turned toward one of the other males and threatened him with the knives as well. When Pharr put the knives down one of the subjects exited the house and went to a neighbor’s house for help.
The stabbing victim was transported to Pacific Communities Hospital where he was treated for two stab wounds to the head, and released. Pharr, who was on scene during the investigation, was arrested and lodged at the Lincoln County Jail on one count of Assault in the second degree and one count of Menacing. His bail was set at $115,000.
