Bonham police officers arrested 27-year old Dakota Bishop on Saturday night after he admitted that he had “stabbed the other individual (in the neck with a knife) during a fight.”
According to reports, the Bonham Police Department received a 911 call of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon at 328 W. Sam Rayburn Drive (the Juba Pizza bar).
Police say a physical altercation had taken place between the victim and the suspect and, at some point during the altercation, the suspect produced a knife and stabbed the victim in the neck.
When officers arrived, they immediately applied medical assistance utilizing their emergency wound kit until Bonham EMS arrived and tended to the victim.
Texas DPS and the Fannin County Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene and assisted Bonham police.
“After speaking with witnesses and receiving an additional 911 call from someone who had given an individual a ride to Lake Bonham RV campground who matched the description of the suspect, officers located the suspect at the campground,” said Bonham PD in a press release. “The suspect admitted that he had been in an altercation and stabbed the other individual during the fight.”
Bishop was taken into custody and transported to the Fannin County Jail on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge.
“This is an ongoing investigation, and no other information is available at this time.”
