Man allegedly stabs friend in face and neck after drinking session
The Daily Courier


A man is in jail on charges of attempted second-degree murder and an unidentified male victim is in the intensive care unit of a Phoenix hospital after an alleged fight involving a knife early Saturday at a mobile home park, a Chino Valley Police Department spokesman said.

When officers arrived, they found a 42-year-old man with lacerations to his face and neck at the home of the suspect, Chino Valley resident Hershell Roy Scott Jr., 44. Two women were also at the home.

Witnesses told police that the group was hanging out at the residence and consuming alcohol after meeting at a local bar.

Statements from witnesses indicated that Scott's alleged attack on the victim was unprovoked. The victim's injuries were caused by a sharp object, which was later recovered when police obtained a warrant to search the home.

After treatment by Chino Valley Fire Department and Life Line Ambulance medics, the victim was taken to Prescott and then flown to a Phoenix hospital where he underwent surgery.

Police said all parties involved had consumed high levels of alcohol before the incident occurred. Scott was booked into the Yavapai County jail in Camp Verde, police said.

Did the "powers-that-be" not do a background check on this guy? All you have to do is check the AZ Courts website to see this guy should never have been trusted.

At least nobody had a gun. Nothing good happens after people within stumbling distance of a trailer park come home stinkfaced after midnight.

I happen to live in the very nice park where this occurred. We do not have a nutty man running around peeking in windows, and yes it is a senior park. The man mentioned as the person with the knife was a worker who was allowed to live in the park. He was thought very highly of. We will miss him, but would never trust him in our homes again.

The Over-55 mobile home park across Road 2 N from Safeway is a very nice park. The park on Road 1 W between Center and Road 1 S is not so nice. There are other parks scattered throughout Chino Valley especially off of Hwy 89 that I have never been through so know nothing about. The article does not mention in which park the incident took place. If I had to guess I would guess the one on Road 1 W since a bar is not too far away.

Nothing good ever comes from drinking in a trailer park.

Umm, I am guessing you are incorrect in your statement that the park is for 55 and over. Unless, Hershell Roy Scott Jr. age 44, is living there on some kinda of special waiver.

I just think that Ban That Park stuck a nerve and tells a bit more truth than you like.

You need to shut your mouth - the mobile home park is run by two very nice couples. It is also for 55 and over. So don't talk unless you know what you are talking about

That park is nothing but trouble! A weirdo manager who walks around with binoculars around his neck, Its not a safe feeling place! For a single woman with peeping toms! I think its the drug haven of Chino Valley. Chino Police need to look at the habits of the ones who manage and own it..

@ dilemma time! ...............

Do your homework. The headlines always read: Man stabbed by friend. Man shot by friend. Man runs over friend. Friend kills man's dog. etc. etc.

It's obviously "friends" that need to be banned.

Do we outlaw knives or alcohol? Or both? Knives don't have a safety on them? Alcohol has no safety either........oh, I'm so torn right now I don't know what to call for banning?
