Lufkin police respond to stabbing on Wilma Street

by Taylor Hemness

LUFKIN (KTRE) - Lufkin police responded to a domestic dispute tonight that ended with a man being stabbed.

The call came in just before 10:00 from a home at 112 Wilma Street. According to police, 26-year-old Joe Nathan Jones of Lufkin came to the home to speak to 31-year-old Shalatshia Vinson of Lufkin. Vinson left the home after talking to Jones.

When Vinson returned to her home with a male and female friend, Jones was waiting on the porch. While talking to Vinson, Jones shoved her into the house, and locked the front door. He then began to physically assault Jones.

At that time, the male friend, 31-year-old Terrance Blakey of Nacogdoches, broke into the home and began to fight with Jones. Jones stabbed Blakey in the leg, but Blakey was able to restrain Jones until police were called.

Jones was arrested at the scene and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and Class A assault family violence. Blakey was treated for his wounds at the scene.
