Jacob Jones, 32, was arrested after police say he stabbed his younger brother in the neck.

About 3:45 p.m., police were called to the 2000 block of Clark Street, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s report. When deputies arrived, Justin Jones, 22, told them he was working on a computer when his brother, Jacob Jones, 32, came out of the bedroom yelling.

Justin Jones said he followed his brother back into the bedroom, but when he entered, his brother jumped out of a chair with a knife in his hands. When Justin Jones tried to run, the report said his brother stabbed him in the neck.

The report said officers found a cut about 2 inches long and located a knife with blood on the blade.

Jacob Jones was arrested on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a knife during the commission of a crime.
