A Mayfield woman was arrested on assault charges Wednesday after allegedly stabbing a man in the chest.

Mayfield Police Chief Nathan Kent reported that Jessica Coble, 39, was charged with second-degree assault (domestic violence) related to the incident.

Police were called to the Plaza Apartments on Barton Drive here for an apparent stabbing. An unidentified male victim was taken to Jackson Purchase Medical Center with a stab wound to the chest.

A MPD officer contacted Coble at her apartment. The report said she was cooperative. Evidence showed she had followed the victim into the roadway after he had left her apartment. A knife was recovered in her apartment.

The male victim is expected to recover from a non-life threatening injury, the release stated.
