MOSS POINT -- A person was stabbed during a domestic incident Monday, officials said, prompting the arrest of a Vancleave man.

Jackson County deputies responded to a report of a stabbing in the 8000 block of Mississippi 613 about 7:25 p.m., Sheriff Mike Ezell said in a press release.

A woman at the residence told deputies her ex-boyfriend, Charlie Whitney Jr., came to her house uninvited, stabbed a person who was visiting, then left.

EMT units arrived and took the victim, whom authorities would not identify, to Singing River Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies found and arrested Whitney, 33, on a charge of aggravated assault, Ezell said.

Whitney's bond information was not immediately available.
