— A man is accused of punching and stomping a co-worker before onlookers at Southern Nazarene University, court papers show.

Lonnie C. Frazier, 33, was charged Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court with aggravated assault and battery.

The alleged attack took place about 8:30 p.m. Nov. 12 inside the campus student center, 6612 NW 42, where Frazier and the woman, Flora Urioste, both worked in the food court, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Witnesses, including those who chased Frazier from the student center, said they saw him “attack, beat, kick and stomp a female” in the student center known as “The Commons,” police reported.

“Witnesses said for no apparent reason Lonnie began to punch the victim in the head until she went to the ground and then he began to kick and stomp the victim in the face and head,” Bethany police Capt. J.R. Jencks wrote in the affidavit.

The victim was bleeding from cuts to the face and head, police reported.

The woman's condition was unclear Tuesday.

Officers arrested Frazier, who was detained at gunpoint, according to the affidavit.

Frazier, who is listed as a transient in court documents, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail, with bail set at $8,000, a jail official said.
