A Newport man was charged with felony assault with a dangerous weapon after he allegedly attacked someone with an ice pick early Saturday morning. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.
The incident occurred shortly after 1 a.m.
Jamere M. Wilkins, 35, of Newport, was arrested around 8:20 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8 and was also charged with domestic disorderly conduct, domestic simple assault and domestic breaking and entering.
