MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man was hospitalized after being stabbed with a pen during a domestic dispute.

When police responded to the scene at Houston Levee Road and Pisgah Road, they saw a woman down on the sidewalk and a man with stab wounds to his shoulder.

The woman, Jessica Johnson, told police she stabbed her boyfriend, William Jones, with a pen because he hit her and beat her.

Jones was transported to Baptist East in noncritical condition, police said.

Police couldn’t determine who was the primary aggressor, so they arrested both Johnson and Jones.

Johnson is charged with aggravated assault, and Jones is charged with domestic assault causing bodily harm.
