Polk County Sheriff's Deputies arrest subject in stabbing. - 04/04/17

On 04/03/17 at 00:02 a.m. The Polk County Sheriff's Office, assisted by officers from the Dallas Police Department and the Oregon State Police responded to a report of a male who had been stabbed in the chest at 392 N. Kings Valley Hwy outside of Dallas, OR.

Upon arrival deputies encountered the victim, a 39 year old resident of the home with a serious stab wound. He was transported by Dallas Medics to Salem Hospital.

The victim was unable to give much information but implied that it was a stranger who stabbed him. Deputies began investigating the time line for the victim's night and discovered that he had recently been in the company of David Tabler, 54 who also resided on the property. Through investigative interviews deputies learned that Mr. Tabler and the victim were in an argument leading up to the stabbing.

Deputies learned that Mr. Tabler was staying in another building only steps from the main residence and they located him in that building. Mr. Tabler was interviewed as part of the investigation and provided statements regarding a conflict with the victim. Mr. Tabler also was found to have a significant amount of blood on his hands and clothing.

Mr. Tabler was arrested for a Assault I, a Measure 11 offense and Unlawful Use of a Weapon and lodged at the Polk County Jail. A search warrant was subsequently granted to search the property and the likely weapon used to stab the victim was located.

If any person has information regarding this incident please call Deputy Mike Smith at 503-623-9251.
