Two more arrested in stabbing case

GREENFIELD — Two more people were arrested this week in connection with a Facebook post that led to a stabbing in Greenfield in early September, according to jail records.

Jacob O’meara, 25, of Greenfield, was one of two people injured during the assault in the 300 block of Tague Street on Sept. 1. He was arrested this week on charges of disorderly conduct.

His twin brother, Joshua O’meara, 25, was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

This is the second set of brothers to be put behind bars and face charges related to the incident.

Brandon Anderson, 33, of Fountaintown, was arrested immediately following the incident on charges of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon and battery.

William S. Anderson, 38, of Greenfield, originally was thought to be a victim after he was stabbed in the hand during the altercation. He was arrested last week on charges of battery resulting in bodily injury and disorderly conduct.

All involved have been released on bond, according to jail records.

Police believe Jacob O’meara and William Anderson were exchanging the messages on social media that led to a fistfight outside a Greenfield home in September. All four men are believed to have been involved with the fight, court records state.

Brandon Anderson pulled a knife during the altercation, wounding Jacob O’meara and William Anderson, police said.
