The Knoxville Police Department is looking for a Sevierville dentist who allegedly raped and stabbed a woman at a Knoxville motel then fled.
Attempted first degree murder and rape warrants have been issued for 47-year-old Dr. David William Gary, of Knoxville, after police identified him as the suspect in the stabbing of a woman last week.
According to a statement from the Knoxville Police Department, officers responded to call at the Inn of Knoxville, 1500 N. Cherry Street, just before 9 a.m. on Nov. 17, 2015 to find a woman who had just been stabbed in the torso. The woman told police that she had accompanied a man to the motel where an argument ensued. As the man was leaving in his late-model brown and black Porsche Cayenne, he stopped the car, got out and ran back and stabbed her. He fled the scene before officers arrived. The victim was transported to UT Medical Center where she was treated for serious injuries.
Gary works as a lead dentist at Aspen Dental in Sevierville. He is described as a black male with brown eyes and black hair, 5′ 10″ tall and weighing about 225 lbs. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Knoxville Police Department’s crime information line at 865-215-7212. Callers can remain anonymous. Police warn that Gary may be in possession of knives and/or guns.
All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
