Police: Victim jumps from moving vehicle to escape stabbing

Bartholomew County deputies say a victim jumped out of a moving vehicle to get away from a battery in the northern part of the county last week.

35-year-old Joshua Jones of St. Paul is under arrest on charges of domestic battery with a deadly weapon and criminal confinement.

The victim told deputies at about 5 a.m. Thursday morning that she had been stabbed in the leg Thursday morning during the dispute with Jones, her ex-boyfriend. She also injured her forehead and hands when she leapt from the moving vehicle. The victim was picked up by a driver who took her to Columbus Regional Hospital.

Decatur County deputies arrested Jones and after treatment for injuries at the Decatur County Hospital, he was taken to Bartholomew County Jail.
