Rimer

A Grande Ronde man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stabbing a Medford man in Klamath Falls on Feb. 23.

True Re Rimer, 21, is charged with second-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.

Court records show Rimer and the victim were both in Klamath Falls to visit the same woman on Feb. 23. She asked Rimer to leave the residence after a heated argument, records show, and Rimer punched a hole in the wall.

The victim also told Rimer to leave, then got in a shoving match with him near the front door of the residence. The two also engaged in a physical altercation outside the residence in which Rimer ran at and tackled the victim, records show.

The victim pushed Rimer off and got on top of him, records show, and the victim felt a sharp pain — he realized he had been stabbed.

Rimer allegedly used a folding style, 3- to 4-inch knife.

Stabbing wounds sustained by the victim were non-life threatening and did not cause internal bleeding, records show.

Rimer was arrested in Polk County on Feb. 27, and is now held in the Klamath County Jail on $50,000 bail.

Rimer has a hearing scheduled for March 13 in front of Judge Roxanne Osborne.

Prewitt also allegedly tossed out and damaged items the victim had in her vehicle, and threw items at her when she drove away, records show.

Prewitt was released from the Klamath County Jail Tuesday after paying $1,800, 10 percent of his bail.

He has a hearing scheduled for March 12 in front of Judge Roxanne Osborne.
