Man arrested after stabbing teddy bear

Thursday, January 10, 2019

A Warrenton man who told officers he was “having a hard time with the holiday season” was arrested early Christmas Day on multiple charges.

Terry Lloyd Parsons, 65, was booked at Clatsop County Jail for fourth-degree assault, menacing and creating a disturbance.

His female roommate and a man he was allowing to stay on his couch called police about 3:15 a.m. when Parsons began yelling, making threats and stabbing a teddy bear, according to a police report.

When officers arrived at the mobile home in the 100 block of Northwest Fourth Avenue, they found a broken knife on the floor, a bear with its head removed, and Parsons, who had blood on his hands, was staggering and using slurred speech, according to the report.

He had a gash on the back of his head and told police he’d fallen.

Parsons was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital for treatment before being booked at Clatsop County Jail.
