A Dresslerville man is scheduled to be arraigned on April 29 in the February stabbing of two men outside of a Carson City bar.

Marvin Dressler, 29, was bound over to trial on two felony charges of attempted murder and two charges of battery with a deadly weapon.

According to police records two men - Terril Smothers, 29, and Daniel Crocker, 23 - were leaving Katie's Bar on Highway 50 East just before 3 a.m. Feb. 16 when Dressler came outside and allegedly motioned for them to roll down their car window.

The men said when they did, Dressler began punching Crocker. Smothers jumped from the vehicle to pull Dressler off his friend and Smothers and Dressler then fought, said Carson City Sheriff's Detective Bob Motamenpour.

En route to the hospital, both men discovered they'd each been stabbed numerous times in their torso, head, shoulder and back, the detective said. Crocker suffered a collapsed lung.

Motamenpour said that Dressler claims Crocker told him to get off the car, and then Smothers smacked Dressler in the face before the fight ensued.

Dressler denied using a knife in the assault. He remains in custody in lieu of $30,000 bail.

Katie's Bar owner Kil Ye Chew was arrested on obstruction charges after police allegedly found a man on probation hiding in Chew's back office.

Last week, supervisors suspended the liquor license for Katie's Bar for at least two weeks and told Chew that in order to regain her license she needs to develop a plan to increase security.
