A stabbing incident Saturday evening resulted in the arrest of a man at Guest House, 204 E. Felton Road.

According to the incident report, about 7 p.m. a K9 officer observed Jovan Jones, 22, of 30 Rydal Drive, Cartersville, striking a female in the head and slamming her head into a brick wall.

The officer, and his canine, approached Jones and told him to release the woman. Jones attempted to pull the victim into room 316, continuing to strike her in the head and kick her. When the officer continued to make requests for Jones to release the woman, he said, "I am going to kill her. Then I'm going to kill your [expletive]."

The victim then yelled that Jones has stabbed her and the officer observed blood coming from the woman's chest. Because Jones did not comply with the officer's commands, the canine was commanded to apprehend Jones.

The dog first made contact with Jones on the upper left arm with Jones hitting the dog in the head and kicking the animal. Jones then approached the K9 officer, striking him on both sides of the head.

Once backup arrived, Jones was placed under arrest and charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and acts, obstruction of an officer, false imprisonment and battery of a police dog.

Jones was taken to Cartersville Medical Center for his injuries. The victim was also transported to CMC for stab wounds and other injuries from the altercation. She was later transferred to Floyd Medical Center where she was listed in stable condition Sunday night.
