Hoffman said that Jones turned herself in on Thursday morning on charges of Assault 1st Degree and Possession of a Deadly Weapon During Commission of Felony for allegedly using a broken beer bottle to cut a 50-year-old male victim’s face and neck.

The victim was transported to Kent General Hospital where he was treated for his injuries. Witnesses and the victim advised officers that the two were arguing for an unknown reason, leading to Jones assaulting the male victim, according to Hoffman.
