The U.S. Marshals Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) arrested a Mansfield man wanted for stabbing that occurred this week on Popular Street.

David King, 34, was arrested Thursday afternoon on the 900 block of E.19th Ave. in Columbus. King was wanted by the Mansfield Police Department for a felonious assault, resulting from a confrontation and stabbing.

The arrest warrant was turned over to the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force Richland County Division. Task Force Officers initiated a fugitive investigation to locate King, which led them to the Columbus area.

In coordination with SOFAST, Task Force Officers were able to locate and arrest King.

Mansfield Police Chief Dino Sgambellone was notified of the arrest and stated, "It is the ability of the Marshals Task Force, to reach out and apprehend violent offenders, that continues to pay extraordinary dividends towards the safety of our community."
