Patrick Clark Long, 21, of Mustang was charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon after a stabbing on Monday night.

Managing Editor 

A Mustang High School senior was hospitalized after police say he was stabbed on Monday night.

Police arrested Patrick Clark Long, 21, of Mustang on charges of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon. The victim, Justus Elliot, 17, is currently being treated for his injuries at OU Medical Center.

The incident occurred at the volleyball courts just south of the First Baptist Church.

“At 9:30 p.m., the reporting person told us that a juvenile male had been stabbed by another male at a volleyball court at the 900 block of North Mustang Road,” Mustang Police Captain Willard James said. “Once officers were on the scene, the victim had already been transported to a local hospital by one of his friends and the suspect had left the scene.”

James said the incident occurred after an altercation between Long and Elliot.

“Our investigation revealed that the suspect and victim were yelling at each other and it turned into a physical altercation,” he said. “The victim was stabbed at least two times in the torso area by a knife before the altercation was broken up. There were several witnesses at the scene.”

The suspect was identified and later found to be at Canadian Valley Integris Hospital

“He was seeking treatment for a stab wound he sustained during the altercation,” James said. “Our investigation reveals there was only one weapon involved.”

Long’s bond was set at $10,000.

Word of Elliot’s injuries spread rapidly over the Mustang High School student body.

“The student received medical attention and is reported to be in stable condition,” said Mary Leaver, Mustang Public Schools Communication Officer. “Our crisis counselors are on standby, ready to assist any student who may need help during this time. Teachers and staff have been encouraged to remain vigilant and let counselors know if they see a student who may need to talk to someone. On behalf of the district, our prayers for a full recovery go out to the student who was injured.”

You know.. I read these comments and my heart goes out to all of you. Doesn't the Bible say "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" ? And doesn't it say "A new commandment I give unto you is that you love others as I have loved you"? And also, "We all fall short of the glory of God not some of us." ? So since we all know the Bible is truth, why are the people so quick to put a label on someone they don't know? Why is it the people are busy praying for the victim but not taking heed to the fact that the defendant needs prayer too? Patrick is a wonderful guy and he's so sweet, he cares about others, He loves everyone, and doesn't try to hurt anyone! Patrick has a bright future ahead of him, He's in prison and he's doing the right thing now. He's staying out of trouble, and doing what's best for him. Patrick might have gotten involved in drugs and lost himself within the hard times he was going through but that doesn't make him a bad person. Everyone has done things they wish they could take back but unfortunately we can't take back the things that wr have done were not proud of. All we can do is pray for forgiveness and move on, God had forgiven Patrick and so should everyone else.

If only you guys saw the potential this guy had before he was introduced to drugs. Pat was my brothers best friend since first grade, and its sad watching someone you grew up with go downhill. I dont approve of what he did, but it sucks he had to push it this far to learn a lesson. You did it to urself pat.

Jaxton, are you part of the problem or part of the solution? You admit that you bought beer while under age and to where you bought the beer. Did you ever report it to the police? You admit to seeing teens smoke "meth" and are drunk? Did you dial 911? Where do you draw the line? I see the police handing out tickets all the time. I do agree with you in the fact that the Mustang Police should be more proactive in policing the side streets and neighborhoods but you can't be everywhere at once. So here is another question to you Jax. Do you want them to hand out tickets or be proactive looking for crime? It's your tax dollar at work. Have you called your Mayor, to ask him to look into it. Did you even vote when there was a election? This is the beauty of America. If you don't like Mustang, move. If you find a town where the police can be everwhere at once, there are plenty of activities for teens so they won't get into trouble and the stores don't sell beer to kids like you. Please feel free to share the name of this town. All I have read in this blog are people taking sides. Well I'm just as guilty. I have taken a side. I don't want anyone stabbed in my town. I don't want thugs roaming, preying, and victimizing people in my town. I do vote and I have called the police and I have responded to fight calls, homicide calls, suicide calls, shooting calls, domestic violence. You name it I've been there. How have you helped Jax?

As stated in the Mustang Times, "The suspect was identified and later found to be at Canadian Valley Integris Hospital", why did Patrick wait to go to the ER if he was stabbed. I believe he would've went to the ER immediatly the injury. I notice that Patrick states he was stabbed, or "I was stabbed too", however, he never states he was stabbed by Justus. Again, the idiot stabbed himself.

THE REASON I AM SHOUTING IS THAT I AM TIRED OF EVERYTIME I OPEN THE MUSTANG TIMES, DAILY OKLAHOMAN, OR THE LOCAL NEWS SOME PUNK LIKE PATRICK IS ROBBING, STEALING, OR KILLING SOMEONE FOR DOPE, OR STABBING SOMEONE WHILE PLAYING VOLLEYBALL AT CHURCH. GET THE PICTURE, FRIEND. THIS CITY, THIS STATE, THIS COUNTRY IS GETTING TIRED OF SUPPORTING TRASH LIKE PATRICK. CHECK OUT ALL OF THE NEW WONDERFUL LAWS WE ARE PASSING TO DEAL WITH PATRICK TRASH. I.E. MAKE MY DAY LAW, STAND YOUR GROUND LAW, CONCEALED CARRY LAWS. THESE LAWS ARE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE WHO ARE TIRED OF BEING VICTIMIZED BY "CONVICTED" TRASH LIKE PATRICK. SINCE THIS INCIDENT MUSTANG HAS HAD ANOTHER STABBING. SO FRIEND WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THIS? AS YOU STATED IN YOUR POSTING WE HAVE ALL DONE THINGS AND HAVE NOT GOTTEN CAUGHT. THIS IS TRUE! BUT I HAVE NEVER COMMITTED A FELONEY, I HAVE NEVER STABBED ANYONE, I HAVE NEVER SMOKED POT OR TAKEN ILLEAGLE DRUGS. CHECK OUT PATY'S FRIENDS POSTINGS HE HAS DONE THEM ALL AND HE IS ONLY 21. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE END PRODUCT.

Yes, in this case I do believe you can believe the Facebook, it's PATRICK'S Facebook, he posted it, he posted the pictures of his weapons....is it really judging when it is the person who owns his facebook that is doing the posting!!!!!!

TO JAXTON: Seriously you think mustang is bad?? ha that is funny, I grew up in a town where this stuff happened every day. And they were not just doing meth, they were doing every drug in the book. Plus the poverty level was insane, pretty sure mustang is not lined with homeless people. Be thankful you live in a place that has clean water, that is not littered with trash, and that majority of people here have a bed to sleep at night. And about patrick let god judge him, he is the only one who has the right. We all act like we are so perfect and are making him about to be this horrible person, (not to say what he did was not bad) but seriously judging in gods eyes is just as bad as what he did. We all need to step and look at our lives. Gluttony, sloth, wrath, greed, pride, lust, envy. Now which one of you who have posted any of these comments (including me) can say we are not guilty of these, if you can honestly tell me that you are sin free than feel free to say what you like, otherwise leave the judging up to god and stay out of it.

I believe the police report states "The investigation reveals there was only one weapon involved." Did they figure out who the weapon belonged to? This is the person that did the stabbing to both of these guys.

Honestly I have seen kids fighting just because they feel like it on that specific day its like they wake and are like today I feel like getting in a fight so they pick on someone else until the other person has had enough and they throw punches. I'm sorry but no one should judge someone based on thier Facebook, its internet and haven't we all been told u can't believe what u hear on the internet? I know I have. I know more ppl then just Patrick long have records in this town so why be judging him on that, think about it what if ur child was the one who had the record........

PRISON, WHY ALL THE SHOUTING, AND NICE NAME! Patrick has had his run-ins with the law and did "get caught" doing some pretty stupid things and I am not syaing that this is not a stupid thing that he did as it was. But he is no different than any of us as we have all done stupid things, but just haven't gotten caught doing them. Both of these kids (reagrdless if they are 21 or 17, that is what they are) made a mistake. If Patrick felt threatened by a group of kids, then the law will decide if he was warranted in doing what he did, not you or I. It is a little disheartening that this could even happen in Mustang, but it seems like this is one of a handful of things that has been happening there lately. I hope both of them learn from this incident and that the rest of Mustang can learn from it as well. I have kids that go to Mustang High School who come home almost daily and talk about the latest incident at school and how things are getting out of control. Of course a football player, especially at Mustang, will always get the benefit of the doubt in any altercation, but again, lets see what happens. I am glad that both kids are ok and hope that they realize what a mistake this was and will think twice in the future.

Jaxton- Be thankful that you do live in a town like this where people do know your name. Marijuana is a drug that is bad. Does the person who buys the weed know what chemicals are in it? No, they don't have a clue. It could be mixed with any numerous highly intoxicating chemical drug like PCP, Angel Dust, and so on. So people may say oh pot is fine. Its healthy for you. Do the research and find out what many lace it with.

Patrick, a caring and sweet person, now.....I've never laughed so hard... caring and sweet by my definition and Webster's definition certainly isn't stabbing someone. Justus doesn't to try to be a BadA, it is what it is...Justus is a leader in this community, through sports, students assisting students (SAS), ect...He is well respected by all his fellow classmates, as proven by the fact the School opened the doors after hours for all student body to come and support each other, while awaiting the results of Justus' condition. All I know is the facts about Character don't seem to be pointing the same way about Patrick. He wants to pose as a BadA with guns and knives, and he chose to stab a kid, which included stabbing himself. I think the idiot did it on purpose to have a "self-defense" strategy because he knew he screwed up "big-time". LIke Prison stated, he wouldn't last to the end of the street in LA,and neither would any of his punk friends, and will be somebodies punk in prison, guaranteed!

It wasn't "convenient" for Justus to have all those people there. They were witnesses to his stabbing by a thug who shouldn't have been there in the first place messing around with a bunch of kids. My son was present, along with many others, and he went immediately to the police station and filled out a witness statement. Funny, all the witnesses saw the same thing. Patrick wasn't jumped and had no need to pull out a knife. Justus had no defense wounds and no one else was stabbed. Patrick stabbed himself. That's already been determined.

Just like most people in mustang that judge before the whole story and they think they are christians. You can't judge someone just because they have a record, of "pot". People really dont see how much this town is messed up , i have lived here my whole life. The police do nothing until they are called, They rarely go and look for speeders , they never patrol all you ever do is see them at taco mayo or wendys overeating. Oh well you all can go hide in your houses pretending this is a great town. Only us youth know how bad it is and im the only one that will admit it. Any minor can get cigarettes or beer at bronco 66 trust me i did when i was 12 and they still ID noone. You cant even walk at our small town park around the pond at night without having to see teens drunk or smoking meth. This town needs some refurbishing.

Why would you defend this kid? We were there, we were being civil with Patrick before all of this. We didn't jump him? Justus doesn't need help in a fight or a weapon, this kid might of been scared because there were a lot of us there, because as soon as Justus touched him he started stabbing, instead of taking a beating. We aren't the type of people that need to jump someone, we can handle our own.


Submitted By: Submitted: 4/21/2011
Think about what some of you are saying.... Patrick has a record, Justus does not. Justus is a minor, even if he did have a record it wouldn't be visible to us because......he is a minor! Besides that, not having a record doesn't mean you aren't a punk...it means you haven't been caught or tried as an adult. NOT saying that Justus is this type...but just because Patrick is a pot head, doesn't mean he is violent person who should be thrown in jail forever. Lets be realistic. The only thing we know for sure is the two got into a fight and both were stabbed, but for some reason only one person is receiving the lash. Everyone involved in the fight should suffer some type of consequence. Just saying.

Hey Friend....These kids were at a church volleyball sand courts playing volleyball, I don't think they were there waiting for this moran to come and stab someone, just so they could be witnesses. These kids will have to live with this traumatic experience for the rest of their lives. Seeing one of thier friends hurt very badly by a loser. 3 years ago, a bright future...he traded his bright future for a thug lifestyle. As far as the thug pictures on facebook, they do prove that Patrick is a loser, idiot and no good dirty rotten dog.

I think those kids will do fine in front of the judge. They only have to tell the truth about what happened. Unlike someone who has already had a record. Supposed to be an adult now. Yet hanging out where the kids are at. Doesn't seem like Pat learned his lesson.


Submitted By: Submitted: 4/21/2011
If we are going to look at his record, we should look at ALL of it. Everybody assumes that a bad kid can't turn good, but a good kid can turn bad.. He got into some drugs, but he was an awesome person before that. And now, he is so caring and sweet.. I know Justus as well. He tries to get the BadA image, even though he is also a good kid.. I think we should find out the real story before jumping to conclusions, and pray that the truth will come out.

Well, 3 years ago Patrick was the kid with the bright future and scholarship at Mid American University to play soccer. As far as the "thug" pictures on Facebook, who cares as that proves nothing! Again, let's see what happens when this group of witnesses (kinda convenient to have a group of this kids friends there to see everything isn't it) will actually say when they are in front of a judge!

You have a point but nothing has been set in stone that, that is what happened. No one is sure of the true story. So everyone should wait for what turns out of this until we start judging the wrong people. Im not saying anyone is right or wrong in this but no one really knows at this point


Submitted By: Submitted: 4/21/2011
I would like to say first of all the kids where not driving around looking for something to get into. This group of kids are good kids with NO RECORD or have ever been in trouble with the LAW..For posting comments of hate and treats on your facebook is not very smart and saying that krama will be served in time. REALLY that is a good kid that you want your kids to be hanging out with. NO!!! I think you are a chicken if you have to use a knife due to the fact you are getting an old fashion butt wheeping.

really? self defense? after talking to all those witnesses. Geez, if that was ur kid who got stabbed, I hope you wouldnt be singing the same tune. And thats why the newspaper is PUBLIC news, so we can KNOW about people like this in our community and judge to keep our children safe from them.

I will be praying for both, the young man who was stabbed for healing. And for patrick that he will find God. No one is perfect, we are all sinners. All we can do is pray and give it up to God.

I do not think that any of you should be judging, when no one really even knows what happened. Just be thankful that everyone is okay. And there are no facts. Just because he has a record does not mean that he intentionally stabbed the kid. It could very well possibly have been self defense. And it could possibly not have been. But who are any of you to point fingers. I hope that both are okay and nothing more comes out of this.

Really, people, really!! Especially the one calling other idiots, look at Patrick's facebook page with all the pictures he has of guns....posing like he is going to shoot someone, or as he has "finishing them off" and posing with a hand gun placed to his own head. Also, all his thug friends placing threats, stating the high schooler's don't know who they're messing with. Patricks facebook is full of hatered, calling other haters and telling every one "f" off. Justus facebook has many people praying for him, stating how he has changed their lives, missing him and can't believe that this would happen to such a great kid...hmm, facts, I think personal testimony of the character of people tells alot. Justus is the kid everyone loves,a leader. Patrick is nothing but a thug, druggie, gangster wanna be, a menice to society.

Does anyone commenting on this story have any of the facts? The story I've been told is that Patrick was being jumped by seniors that had nothing better to do and think this type of thing is funny. If this story is true, then it's very sad someone was hurt by getting stabbed but if it was in self defense then so be it. A car load of students should have better things to do than to drive around looking for an innocent victim to try to hurt for no reason. I'm sorry there is a child in the hospital over this but hopefully he will be okay and has learned a valuable lesson.

Yes, Patrick has a lot on his record, but that does not mean he is a bad person. The group of kids that told the police their story, are all friends with the boy who got stabbed.. Of course they are going to defend their friend. Patrick stabbed Justus in self defense because he was getting jumped. Idiots.

On paper Patrick Long doesn't look good. I've known him for almost 8 years and know Justus briefly. Patrick may have gotten into drugs and fell back on what Im sure he originally wanted in life but he has never been violent and it seems surreal to me that this type of altercation would even happen. I agree with 'friend' before everyone is quick to judge Patrick Long or Justus ('the victim') the story needs to be set straight. I don't think that either of them were right for getting involved physically and a knife never should have been involved but it happened and I just wish they would figure out the whole story and set this all straight. I can't stand hearing and seeing all the hatred. My heart goes out to Justus and his family but also to Patrick and his family.

Patrick Long obviously is a troubled person. Not too smart of a person to post on his own facebook about the incident, actually admitting guilt.

For such a "christian community" folks sure are quick to judge! How about we wait to see what actually happened before we rush to a conclusion. Also, I am sure that Patrick started the whole thing by himself right? Lets hope justice is served for both involved.
