“An inch or more down, he would have gotten my jugular,” Pierson said. “I'm lucky it was a small blade. I'm really lucky.”
Pierson said he ran into the store and found his wife. He was taken to OU Medical Center.
The blade sliced an artery and part of a neck tendon, Pierson said. Doctors cauterized the wound, and Pierson said he received more than 20 stitches.
Warr Acres police officer Dustin Hendrix said police were still looking for Pierson's assailant Saturday and released a composite sketch.
Pierson described the attacker as a white male, thin and pale, with a slender nose and the “typical biker look.” The man was wearing a bandanna and looked to be 5 feet 11 inches or 6 feet tall. He said he did not get a good look at the motorcyclist's female passenger.
The motorcycle had a burnt orange metallic fuel tank, Pierson said.
