A Brown County man is under arrest after he allegedly broke into a woman’s home and stabbed a man several times with a knife.
The incident happened between late evening Saturday, Nov 14 and early morning Sunday, Nov 15 on Oakland-Locust Ridge Road in Pike Township.
According to a probable cause affidavit written by Detective Chad Noble of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Justin Wayne Moore, age 34, burst into the woman’s home and picked a fight with a man in an upstairs bedroom.
Moore allegedly produced a knife and stabbed the man several times, according to Noble.
Noble said the homeowner’s son was able to get the knife from Moore, who then left the home and waited for a man to pick him up.
The victim was taken to Clermont Mercy Hospital by the woman. Staff at the hospital informed Brown County Communications Center about the stabbing.
Information on the victim’s condition was not available.
Charges are pending against Justin Moore, who is currently being held at the Butler County Jail per contract with Brown County.
In February 2015, prosecuting attorneys dismissed a third-degree felony domestic violence charge against Moore, citing insufficient evidence and the victim claiming her injuries were an accident as reasons for dismissal, Brown County Court of Common Pleas records indicate.
That incident allegedly occurred at the same residence as the stabbing, and the homeowner and her son were also involved in the case, according to court records.
Records from that period also suggest Moore had lived at the residence at that time.
