NORMAN — Assault with a metal pipe

A Norman man faces an assault charge after a man was hit in the head several times with a metal pipe early Sunday morning at Bison Witches in Norman.

Jerry Weldon Jarman, 32, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon Monday in Cleveland County District Court.

According to the police affidavit filed with the charge, Jarman was intoxicated at Bison Witches, 211 E. Main St., when he got in an argument with another person.

The argument was allegedly about Jarman pulling the victim’s girlfriend’s hair. The two parties separated, but Jarman came back about an hour later and hit the victim in the back of the head with a metal pipe about three times, the affidavit said.

Jarman then left the scene after another person took the weapon from him. He was arrested at 12:40 a.m., minutes after the incident, at Gray Street and Jones Avenue, the affidavit said.

Trial continues

Testimony is scheduled to continue today at 8:30 a.m. for the second suspect in the stabbing death of a Cleveland County man.

Loretta Hawks, 35, is on trial after being charged conjointly with Eddie Thompson, 35, and Sebastian Shepard, 19, for first-degree murder, two counts of kidnapping and first-degree burglary.

Thompson was found guilty of all counts by a jury last week with a suggested sentence of life without parole.

The three were charged for the death of Arthur Strozewski, 47, who was stabbed more than 20 times, records show.

Kidnapping charges stem from Strozewski and his teenage son being held against their will. Police found them duct taped in Strozewski’s home after responding to the home invasion and assault in August 2012.

The trial is in District Judge Thad Balkman’s courtroom.
