Warren woman stabs brother on Christmas Eve

Staff report


Jessica Johnson, 22, of 188 Ivanhoe Street NE was charged with felonious assault after police say she stabbed her brother, Antonio Johnson, 24, Monday night in the home they shared.

Antonio Johnson was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence in the 11:45 p.m. incident.

Police said the two were arguing, which led Antonio to smash everything in the kitchen and living room. When he came toward his sister, she stabbed him in his right arm with a kitchen knife.

Antonio Johnson then went outside and smashed out the back windows of his sister’s car with an unknown object, police said.

While this was going on, Jessica fired a BB gun at Antonio, hitting him once in the forehead and once in the back, police said.

Antonio Johnson was taken to St. Joseph Health Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The hospital had no record of him Wednesday.
