Haskell student suffers broken jaw in attack

A dormitory disturbance early Tuesday landed one Haskell Indian Nations University student in Lawrence Memorial Hospital and another in the Douglas County Jail.

Phillip H. Kamolty, 24, was booked into the Douglas County Jail for aggravated battery after police were called about 4 a.m. to Blalock Hall, 155 Indian Ave., police spokesman Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. Kamolty lived at the dorm.

Kamolty allegedly knocked on a dorm room door and then pushed to the floor the 19-year-old man who answered, Pattrick said. Kamolty then allegedly kicked the victim in the face, breaking his jaw.

The victim was in fair condition Tuesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Kamolty was charged with aggravated battery Tuesday in Douglas County District Court. He is jailed on $2,500 bond.

Iola parolee arrested

An Iola man wanted for parole violation ran from a Douglas County Sheriff's deputy Tuesday morning after the deputy stopped to check on a car.

The suspect, Leslie J. Chapman, 41, was one of two people in a car parked about 10:30 a.m. in the area of East 100 and North 1100 roads near Clinton Lake, Sheriff's Lt. Kathy Tate said. Chapman ran when an officer approached.

After a search by sheriff's officers, the Kansas Highway Patrol and Kansas Wildlife and Parks officers, Chapman was caught about 12:35 p.m.
