DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The man stabbed in a fight outside of the M&J Beauty Store last Thursday has been arrested on an assault charge.

Dentavious Jamal Givens, 24, had gotten into an argument with his older sister, Jasmine Coleman, which turned violent when he reportedly began hitting her over the head with a stick.

A law enforcement official said she then grabbed a box cutter and proceeded to cut him on the arm, neck and chest.

Givens is also a suspect in a murder investigation and has also been charged for failing to appear for that charge Friday, according to his jail record. He is now in the Houston County Jail for no bond.
