A refill clerk at the Fort Leonard Wood PX pulled a knife on the supervisory pharmacist Friday, Dec. 3, stabbing the Army staff sergeant repeatedly before fleeing the scene, federal prosecutors said.
Robert E. Sapp, 63, stood before US Magistrate Judge David P. Rush Monday morning, charged with assaulting US Army Staff Sgt. Jaime Malasig with a deadly weapon Friday.
Witnesses told US Army Criminal Investigation Division agents that an argument between Sapp and Malasig exploded into violence, with both men tumbling on the ground before Sapp got to his feet and began stabbing the soldier.
A co-worker told investigators she heard Malasig ask Sapp, “What the fuck are you doing?” before Sapp allegedly struck the soldier multiple times, according to the criminal charge sheet.
Two CID instructors in military police school heard the commotion and chased Sapp to the parking lot, where he allegedly jumped into a vehicle and backed toward one of the instructors before speeding away. MPs activated an installation shutdown, raising barriers to prevent anyone from exiting the sprawling Missouri military base. They detained Sapp after he allegedly abandoned his vehicle and tried to flee on foot.
MPs allegedly seized a knife from Sapp’s pocket, the blade coated in blood and hair. Malasig was transported to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital, where he was treated for what authorities called “non-life-threatening injuries,” including stab wounds to his head.
According to his criminal complaint, both Sapp’s clothing and the driver’s side door of his vehicle were splattered with blood.
No attorney is listed for Sapp on the federal court docket. A cell phone listed in his name did not appear to be working when Coffee or Die Magazine called it Monday.
