Two arrests made in three reports of assault cases

Police made arrests in two of three reported felony assaults over the weekend in Joplin.

Tiffenystet L. Gardea, 34, was charged with first-degree assault in the alleged stabbing of a man Sunday morning in Gardea’s home at 2012 S. Joplin Ave.

Police Cpl. Chuck Niess said Tyler D. Bressie, 21, was stabbed in the back with a screwdriver when he entered Gardea’s home without permission. Bressie, who at one time rented a room at the address, was cited for trespassing after the incident, according to police reports.

Niess said the reports do not indicate whether Bressie was taken to a hospital after the stabbing or what his medical condition was.

Clarence P. Daugherty, 54, was arrested and charged with second-degree assault after he allegedly hit his roommate in the head with a fireplace shovel about 1:30 p.m. Friday inside their home at 2824 S. Highland Ave. The roommate, Kenneth Patton, 47, declined medical treatment, Niess said.

A reported assault of a 46-year-old man on Sunday at a home on West 15th Street remains under investigation. Mark Anthony Curl told officers that he was hit on the head from behind by an unknown assailant outside his home. Curl was taken to Freeman Hospital West for treatment of a cut to his head and a possible broken arm, police said.
