Woman Admits Stabbing Man In Head At Stillwater Party

Patti Weaver


(Stillwater, Okla.) – A woman, who admitted stabbing a man in the back of his head with a screwdriver at a Stillwater party in the 200 block of S. Lewis Street at about 2 a.m. on March 8, 2015, was ordered to pay $3,569 in restitution as a condition of a five-year deferred sentence imposed by Payne County Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler.

Almatene Long, 37, of Tulsa, must also have a substance abuse evaluation, follow any recommendations and undergo random drug tests, along with paying a $960 prosecution fee, a $300 fine and court costs, the judge ordered on May 3.

As part of a plea bargain that increased her charge to aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, the prosecution dismissed two other felony counts of first-degree burglary and attempting to elude Stillwater police against Long, court records show.

The victim was transported by ambulance to the Stillwater Medical Center before being transferred to the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City where he underwent treatment, testing and observation before being released, a police news release said.

Long and two other Tulsans, who had fled the scene as Stillwater police arrived at the party, were subsequently arrested, Stillwater Police Captain Kyle Gibbs said in a news release.

Long was allegedly driving a vehicle that struck two parked vehicles and ran a red light at Third and Main Street while traveling west at a high rate of speed before colliding with a police car, the news release said.

Her passenger, I’Eisha Perkins, 23, was arrested for first-degree burglary, a felony that was dismissed by the prosecution six months later, court records show.

A third suspect, Antawan Green, 23, who fled the scene on foot, was also arrested for first-degree burglary, which was dismissed by the prosecution six months later, court records show.

A preliminary investigation indicated that several uninvited individuals arrived at the party, were asked to leave, and then removed by the residents, the news release said.

“According to witnesses, several of the individuals that had been removed earlier returned and forced their way back into the party by breaking open the front door of the residence,” the news release said.

“An altercation took place inside the residence and a male victim was stabbed in the back of the head with a screwdriver,” the news release said.

Since Long was given a deferred sentence, she will not have a criminal record if she successfully completes her five-year probationary period.
