DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A woman is recovering after being stabbed in the face when she went to drop off her children with their father.
Police were called to an apartment in the 2700 block of Triangle View Drive after 11 p.m. Friday.
The victim told police she had stopped by the apartment to drop off her five children with their father, Andre Jones. She said when he answered the door, Ebony Jones thought she was there to start a fight. She stated Ebony pulled out a large kitchen knife and stabbed her in the face. She said at one point, she tried to grab the knife from Ebony, but in doing so cut both of her own hands.
The victim then ran and yelled for neighbors to call the police.
Ebony Jones, 33, was arrested on charges of felonious assault.
The victim was transported to Miami Valley Hospital for her injuries, which police said were non-life-threatening.
When police went inside the apartment, they said there was a strong odor of bleach, indicating someone may have attempted to have cleaned evidence from the scene. Officers located a possible weapon in the kitchen.
Ebony was booked into the Montgomery County Jail. Andre Jones was also arrested for two unrelated warrants.
