Woman stabbed and severely beaten, man in custody


A man who turned 50 Wednesday was arrested on a charge of felonious assault after police said his live-in girlfriend was stabbed and severely beaten.

Troy Emmert is expected to be arraigned in municipal court Friday. He was taken into custody Wednesday after questioning at the police station and is now in the Mahoning County jail.

Reports said the 31-year-old victim, who police found at her apartment in the 100 block of East Midlothian Boulevard, could not speak to investigators because of her condition. She is being treated at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.
