The Ponca City Police Department reports that co-workers getting together for a fish fry Saturday evening ended with a 53-year-old man with multiple stab wounds and a 54-year-old man in custody.

Personnel at Ponca City Medical Center contacted police at 9:51 p.m. Saturday that a man was seeking treatment for multiple stab wounds. An officer responded and the investigation led officers to a home in the 300 block of South Oak Street.

Police gathered evidence, including the spring-loaded knife believed to have been used. Witnesses were also interviewed. A fight between the two subjects, who had both been drinking, was broken up by another co-worker.

Police said the victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was held overnight at the hospital.

Gregory D. Hoyt, 54, was arrested at his home on South Seventh Street at approximately 11:18 p.m. Saturday.
