The Charleston Gazette

CHARLESTON, West Va. — A Charleston man is charged with malicious wounding and obstructing an officer after he assaulted a man at his ex-girlfriend's house in South Charleston on Sunday, police said.

John Paul McCormick, 30, went in his ex-girlfriend Joakima Ruth Stanley's house in South Charleston and found Michael Manns in a back bedroom, according to a criminal complaint filed by Kanawha County Magistrate Julie Yeager.

McCormick started punching Manns and struck him in the head with a drawer from a dresser, according to the complaint. Manns had to go the hospital to get stitches, according to the complaint.

McCormick fled from the house, but was quickly located at a Save-a-Lot grocery store. McCormick didn't admit who he was until police showed him a photograph of himself given to them by Stanley. Police found McCormick's wallet in a nearby trash can, according to the complaint.

McCormick was in South Central Regional Jail Monday evening.
