The Lyon County Sheriff’s Office reports that on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at about 10:45 PM, Lyon County deputies responded to a reported stabbing underneath the Highway 18 bridge west of Inwood. A Canton police officer, as well as the Canton-Inwood Ambulance, also responded to the location. A twenty-two year old man was transported to the Sanford Canton-Inwood hospital in Canton, SD. He was treated and released.
Nineteen-year-old Damion Lee Williams of Canton is accused in the stabbing. Sheriff’s officials say he fled the scene in A Dodge Durango. Deputies located the Durango a few miles from where the incident occurred, but Williams had fled from that location. A warrant was issued for Williams the following day.
This past Wednesday, (5/15), Williams was arrested in Sioux Falls, SD. On Thursday (5/16), Williams waived extradition and is now being held in the Lyon County Jail. He has been charged with willful injury, a Class D Felony and Aggravated Assault, an Aggravated Misdemeanor.
