St. Paul man arrested in domestic battery case

Bartholomew County sheriff deputies have made an arrest in a domestic battery case in which the victim was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital.

Deputies were sent to the hospital at 5 a.m. Thursday after being told a female had been stabbed and jumped from a moving vehicle in the northwestern part of Bartholomew County.

Detective Will Kinman said the victim had visible injuries to her forehead and hands. The victim also had a leg wound that the victim said was from the stabbing, deputies said.

The victim also advised that the injuries were caused by her ex-boyfriend, later identified as Joshua Jones, 35, of St. Paul, Indiana, and occurred while she was the passenger in his vehicle.

The victim advised that she had to jump from the moving vehicle and was later picked up by a female that was driving in the area who took her to Columbus Regional Hospital.

Jones was located by Decatur County Sheriff’s Office a short time later and taken to Decatur County Hospital to be treated for injuries.

Jones was later arrested on charges of domestic battery and criminal confinement and transported to Bartholomew County Jail, deputies said. Formal charges were filed Friday for domestic battery with a deadly weapon and criminal confinement.
