North Vernon man arrested after stabbing woman

A 19-year-old Jennings County man was arrested Monday after he stabbed a Seymour woman, police report.

Dalton Cameron Renoll of North Vernon faces a Level 6 felony charge of domestic battery with a weapon and a Level 6 felony charge of criminal recklessness following an incident Monday morning.

Police said Renoll drove to the South Lynn Street residence of an 18-year-old woman with whom he previously had been in a relationship and the two began to argue.

That argument escalated, and Renoll pulled out a pocket knife and cut the woman on her upper left arm, Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott said.

Abbott said the woman got in her vehicle, left the residence and drove to work, where she called police at 4:49 a.m. to report the incident. He said she was treated for her injuries at Schneck Medical Center in Seymour.

Renoll returned to North Vernon, but the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department made contact with him and met Seymour police at the Jackson County line with Jennings County.

Abbott said Renoll cooperated with authorities during the investigation.

He was taken to the Seymour Police Department, where he was interviewed and arrested.

Renoll was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 6:19 p.m. without bond pending his initial hearing.

A Level 6 felony carries a sentence between six months and two and a half years if convicted.
