Woman accused in boyfriend’s stabbing


A North Charleston man is recovering from stab wounds after arguing with his girlfriend on Sunday, police said.

Luciana Iesha Jackson, 33, is charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, jail records show.

Officers responded to an Otranto Road apartment complex about 11:30 p.m., an incident report states.

A 33-year-old North Charleston man stood in the parking lot grasping his left arm, according to the report. Blood ran down his arm and dripped onto the sidewalk, police said.

The wounded man told investigators that Jackson, his girlfriend, stabbed him as they argued about their relationship.

Jackson still had blood on her hands when officers arrived, the report said.

A witness reported seeing the couple argue in a parking lot at the complex.

Jackson’s boyfriend pushed her away from him and sat on top of her, pinning her to the ground, the witness told police.

The boyfriend stood moments later and yelled that he had been stabbed, police said.

The wounded man grabbed a brick and held it up and threatened to hit Jackson, who was armed with a knife, the witness reported.

Jackson told officers that she never stabbed her boyfriend with a knife.

She reported that her boyfriend grew angry with her because she was pursuing custody of her four children.

Her boyfriend picked up a brick and held it to her head, Jackson told police. She reported she only grabbed the brick and jabbed it into his shoulder.

A deep slit the shape of a knife was noticeable on the man’s left shoulder, police said. A similar wound was found on the man’s left biceps, according to the report.

A knife was also found at the scene, police said

Paramedics transported the wounded man to Medical University Hospital for treatment, the report states.

Jackson was held at the Charleston County jail.
