An Akron woman stands charged with one count of felonious assault after allegedly stabbing a fellow motorist following a dispute Monday morning. Kisha Jackson, 36, is accused of stabbing a man in the chest with a pair of scissors during an argument in at a North Main Street gas station.
Jackson and the man were reportedly driving in separate cars in the North Hill neighborhood when the dispute escalated and the drivers stopped their cars at the gas station. At some point during the altercation, Jackson pulled out a pair of scissors, stabbed the man, and fled the scene. Akron police later identified her and made the arrest.
Jackson was being held in the Summit County Jail under a $50,000 bond set in Akron Municipal Court.
Section 2903.11 of the Ohio Revised Code defines "felonious assault" as knowingly causing "serious physical harm to another or to another's unborn" or knowingly causing or attempting to cause "physical harm to another or to another's unborn by means of a deadly weapon or dangerous ordnance." If convicted of felonious assault, a felony of the second degree, Jackson faces up to eight years in prison.
