Knox County Sheriff's Office said a man accused of stabbing another man and punching a woman in the face turned himself into authorities Saturday morning.

Deputies took David Crist, 26, into custody at his parents' home on Drinnon Road at approximately 10:30 a.m. without incident. Earlier his father called police and said his son wanted to turn himself into authorities.

The assaults occurred Friday afternoon at a gas station on the corner of Asheville Highway and Strawberry Plains Pike in East Knox County. Deputies said Crist had a long-running dispute with the victims.

The victims were treated and released from UT Medical Center. Crist is facing assault charges.
