DUNCAN — A September 2023 Stephens County jail beating that left an inmate battered and bleeding has led to an arrest warrant for a 44-year-old Duncan man.
The injured inmate told investigators he was beaten after being accused by other inmates of using the shower as a bathroom.
The Stephens County District Court issued a felony arrest warrant for David Glynn Reed for a felony count of aggravated assault and battery after two or more felony convictions, records indicate. He faces between four years to life in prison if convicted.
Stephens County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Yokley stated he was called to investigate the assault on Sept. 30, 2023, after taking the injured inmate to seek medical attention. He stated the inmate had a swollen black eye and learned he suffered multiple breaks around the eye socket, nose and facial area, the warrant affidavit states. He was taken to OU Trauma Center for treatment.
A jail shift supervisor who first responded asked the injured man why he’d been assaulted, and he said the other inmates accused him of defecating in the shower, the affidavit states. He denied doing so.
A review of jail security camera footage showed it was Reed who assaulted the inmate, Yokley stated.
A $500,000 cash warrant bond was issued upon Reed’s arrest.
