Kelvin Leonard Payton, 43, was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Payton is being held on $100,000 bond.

The incident occurred Monday, when Killeen Police Department officers were dispatched to the 2800 block of Tucker Avenue. Police first spoke with a woman who claimed that Payton had stopped her and the victim in an apartment parking lot. Then Payton proceeded to swing a golf club at the male victim, according to an arrest affidavit. The victim and Payton allegedly struggled for a few minutes prior to Payton taking out a box cutter. The woman tried to stop the two men from fighting, which led to her thumb being cut allegedly by Payton’s box cutter. Payton then took the woman’s cellphone, back pack and her sister’s car keys and fled the scene.

The male victim also claims to have been cut near the eye during the struggle with Payton.

Shortly after the investigation, a warrant was issued for Payton’s arrest.

In unrelated cases, three other men were arraigned Wednesday on drug charges:

Stanley Wayne Dunn, 47, on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, less than 1 gram. Dunn is being held in Bell County custody on $30,000 bond. Dunn was allegedly in possession of methamphetamine.

Omar Shaeem Gamble, 20, on a charge of possession of marijuana, more than 4 ounces. Gamble is being held in Bell County custody on $20,000 bond.

Sharif Rashawn McNair, 25, on a charge of possession of a controlled substance, less than 1 gram. McNair is being held in Bell County custody on $20,000 bond.
