A Sulphur Rock man, accused of taking property from the convenience store, the Wildcat Station, located in the 6000 block of Harrison Street, is also accused of attacking and threatening the owner of Wildcat Station, as well attacking an arresting officer.
In the Independence County Circuit Court filings, the prosecuting attorney’s office says the incident of theft occurred on Thursday, Sept. 6.
Scott Conger, the owner of the business went to Gabriel Way and make contact with the suspect in the theft, 53-year-old Nicholas Dore. The police report said Dore charged Conger, knocking him to the ground. Dore then threatened Conger with a knife. When deputies went to the Dore residence, Dore still had the knife. He was ordered to discard the knife and go to a kneeling position, which he did. When deputies approached to take Dore into custody, he resisted. The deputies used a pepper gun to help subdue Dore.
When Deputy Ron Thomas moved in to place handcuffs on Dore, he again pulled away and struck Deputy Thomas several times in the face as he continued to resist. Lt. Wayne Green arrived and helped take Dore into custody.
The prosecuting attorney is charging Dore with terroristic threatening — a felony;
theft of property, a Class A misdemeanor; second-degree battery — a felony;
and resisting arrest, a Class A misdemeanor.
Judge Don McSpadden placed Dore under a $75,000 bond
