A twenty year-old man from Kimberling City was charged with assault after allegedly stabbing the husband of his girlfriend on August 25th.

Court documents say that after Darrell Jesse Palmer, his girlfriend Nicole Toolson and her husband Michael Toolson left a campground after washing clothes, a verbal fight inside a vehicle quickly turned into a physical altercation.

According to the probable cause statement, Michael Toolson told Kimberling City police officer Aaron Hoft that Darrell punched him in the face.  Toolson says that when he leaned over the seat of the car to fight back,  Palmer stabbed him with a pocket knife above his eye, forearm, back and stomach. 

None of the injuries were life-threatening, according to the probable cause statement.

Palmer is also facing charges of second and third degree and misdemeanor assault in unrelated cases.

He is due back in court on all the charges on September 4th.
