Reginald Patillo was sentenced Friday. he had pleaded guilty last November to aggravated assault charges stemming from the February 2019 incidents in Lakewood's town hall. The 48-year-old Lakewood man initially stabbed another person in an unprovoked attack. A panic alarm was soon triggered by someone in the building, and when officers started to speak with Patillo, he suddenly stood up and punched an officer in the eye. The person Patillo stabbed was treated for undisclosed injuries.
