A 40-year-old Ponca City man was arrested Wednesday night on complaints of domestic assault with a deadly weapon, domestic assault and battery in the presence of minor children, violation of a protective order and kidnapping.

Police received a 911 call at 9:45 p.m. from a woman reporting a fight. When officers arrived in the 1100 block of North Birch Street, they called for an ambulance for a victim who had been assaulted with a bat.

Officers confirmed there was a protective order against Chris Sfragidas and he was arrested.

Police confirmed that because  of his past convictions, he is required to register  as a violent offender.

He was charge in October on a complaint of failure to register as a violent offender. A status review docket on that charge is set for Nov. 23.

A permanent protective order was issued against him in October.

A misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse — assault and battery filed in August 2015 was dismissed in the interest of justice in May 2016. A misdemeanor charge of malicious injury to property under $1,000, filed in November 2014, was dismissed in May 2016 in the interest of justice.

He was charged in September 2008 with first-degree manslaughter and in March 2010 entered a plea of no contest. He was sentenced to four years in the custody of the Department of Corrections.

Sfragidas had prior  felony charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after two or more former convictions in 2007. He pleaded no contest and also was sentenced to serve four years in DOC custody in those cases.
