Mahoning Dog Warden stabbing suspect has prior police assault conviction
A sixty-year-old Youngstown man has been jailed for allegedly stabbing the Mahoning County deputy dog warden.
Squire Glenn Jr. was booked into the Mahoning County jail on a charge of felonious assault, according to Youngstown police.
Deputy Dog Warden Dave Nelson was stabbed in the arm on Tuesday around 3:20 p.m. in the area of West Myrtle Avenue and Oak Hill Avenue.
Authorities say Nelson was stabbed while responding to a call with Animal Charity in reference to a man allegedly dragging a dog by a chain.
Nelson was taken to the hospital and is listed in stable condition, police say.
This isn’t Glenn’s first brush with the law. According to Mahoning County Court records, in 1995 Glenn was given a sentence of ten to 25 years in prison after being convicted of four counts of assault on a police officer.
