A Cement man wanted for a brutal weekend assault was arrested Wednesday evening.
David Wayne Anderson, 30, was arrested by Caddo County Sheriff's Deputies after an arrest warrant was issued Wednesday in the Caddo County District Court. Anderson was charged with aggravated assault and battery after former conviction of a felony, according to court records.
Anderson has prior convictions for burglary and prisoner placing body fluid on a government employee, according to court records.
In Oklahoma, aggravated assault and battery is charged when great bodily injury is inflicted, according to Oklahoma statutes, and carries up to five years imprisonment for the first offense. With previous felony convictions, state statues allow for punishment by imprisonment in the State Penitentiary for a term in the range of 20 years to life imprisonment.
Anderson was wanted for the Friday night beating of James Koehler, 30, of Cyril. The assault left Koehler with several severe injuries including a jaw broken in three places, fractures to both eye sockets and injuries to an eye, a shattered nose, along with rope burns and cartilage damage to his throat. Koehler's mother, Penny Houtz Callahan said she received word of Anderson's arrest around 6 p.m. Callahan said that following surgery Tuesday, Koehler was allowed to leave the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
"He got to come home today," Callahan said. "He has a head and face full of stitches, wires, plates and packing, but he's alive."
