CHARLESTON, Mo. (AP) – A southeast Missouri man is charged with felony domestic assault in connection with a screwdriver stabbing that injured a woman.

The Sikeston Standard Democrat reports that Mississippi County prosecutors also have charged 30-year-old Anthony George of East Prairie with first-degree burglary and armed criminal action.

East Prairie police say that officers responding to a reported domestic dispute before dawn Friday found the victim with two stab wounds in her chest in her home.

Police say the woman reported that George kicked in her front door and assaulted her before injuring her with a screwdriver.

Investigators later found George riding a bicycle and arrested him.

Online court records do not show whether he has an attorney.
