Man charged with domestic violence

BILOXI

A man has been charged with felony domestic violence after a stabbing at his home on Grandmother Lane.

The victim, who wasn’t identified in a news release from the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department, received treatment at a local hospital for what deputies described as stab wounds to the leg.

Deputies said Joshua Hughes Sr., 25, came home and ransacked his house Saturday morning. The victim was able to go into a bathroom and lock the door until Hughes allegedly kicked it in and stabbed her.

Hughes left the home before deputies arrived, but returned shortly and was arrested there. Justice Court Judge Melvin Ray set his bond at $100,000.
