A twenty eight year-old Jasper County man has been arrested on charges of first-degree domestic assault after allegedly slitting his girlfriends throat early this morning.
Jasper County Sheriff's Captain Derek Walrod says Josh G. Johnson sliced the throat of his twenty-one year old girlfriend in a friends car during an argument.
The woman was taken to McCune Hospital in Jasper where she received five stitches to close the wound and was released. Walrod says investigators had to track the woman down to get a statement and she is in fear for her life.
Johnson is being held on a 24 hour hold pending the filing of formal charges of domestic assault and armed criminal action.
