Police: Man off his meds threatens woman

A Duncan man is in jail on $75,000 bond after he was accused of being off his medicine and acting violently with a knife.

Kevin Anthony Sandefur, 33, made his initial appearance Tuesday in Stephens County District Court where he was charged with a felony count of domestic assault with a dangerous weapon after conviction of two or more felonies, according to court records. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

Sandefur was arrested Saturday after Duncan police were called to a domestic disturbance at 317 W. Mulberry. On arrival, the victim told Duncan Police Officer Jacob Roller that her boyfriend, Sandefur, was "off his suboxone medication and being very violent," according to the affidavit filed in court. She said they had been arguing about her attending a pool party and he threatened her with a knife. She left and told her daughter to call police.

A neighbor witnessed the verbal argument and saw Sandefur with a knife, the affidavit states. She yelled at the victim to get away from him and that's when, she said, Sandefur put the knife away and threw a cup of water on his girlfriend. 

Sandefur told police he'd never had a knife during the argument, Roller stated. He was arrested and booked into Stephens County jail.
