Two charged with assault from fight

Published 12:45 pm Monday, May 22, 2017

Two men were jailed early Thursday morning after an argument led to a fight involving a baseball bat and a knife.

Winchester police went to the residence of Cody Jones, 32 Sylvania Ave., shortly after midnight when dispatchers answered a 911 call, but only heard a fight on the other end of the line.

Officers found Jones, 26, armed with a “large knife” who had been assaulted with a baseball bat. Mark Mooney, 53 of 70 Melbourne St., was wielding the bat and had been assaulted with a knife. 

Police said Mooney is the father of Jones’ girlfriend and the two got into an argument. 

Both men were arrested and charged with second-degree assault. Each is being held on a $50,000 cash bond in the Clark County Detention Center. They will likely be arraigned Monday in Clark District Court.
