Frisbie plea hearing scheduled
A plea hearing has been scheduled in Bradford County Court for Jeremy Michael Frisbie, the man accused of stabbing two people in Barton in June and fleeing to Sayre.
The hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 30 before president judge Jeffrey Smith, according to court information.
Sayre borough police charged Frisbie with aggravated assault, burglary, escape, flight to avoid apprehension, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance for incidents that occurred as police attempted to place Frisbie into custody, according to a criminal affidavit.
New York state police said Frisbie received a ride to a residence on Olive Street in Sayre after he stabbed two men June 11 on Middle Road in Barton. One victim, Mike Pierce, 25, was treated at the scene for a laceration, police said. The other, 30-year-old Dale Gesford, underwent surgery at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre for a life-threatening evisceration injury and spent several days in the hospital's intensive care unit, police said.
Sayre police said officers followed Frisbie from the Olive Street residence over a fence, traveling along Lincoln Street before locating him inside a Linden Street residence he had forcibly entered. Police said Frisbie struggled with officers as they attempted to place him into custody, injuring a Sayre officer and a New York state trooper.
Frisbie, who remains in the Bradford County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, will be charged in New York state following his extradition from the county, according to New York state police.
