Texas County authorities are searching for a 37-year-old Mountain Grove man wanted following an assault early this morning at a Texas County bar.
Casey B. Blair, 37, is charged with second-degree assault following an altercation at the Midway bar east of Mountain Grove on U.S. Business 60.
Texas County Sheriff Carl Watson said a white male was stabbed numerous times and made his way to the Mountain Grove Police Department to seek medical aid shortly after 1 a.m. The victim was flown to a Springfield hospital.
Watson said an investigation found that two males had a verbal confrontation inside the bar. One was asked to leave. The second left a short time later and was approached by the suspect in the parking lot.
Watson said anyone with information should call his office at 417-967-4165.
