Iredell Deputies Arrest Assault Suspect

 James Vernell Jones
Iredell County deputies arrested James Vernell Jones, of Troutman, September first on burglary and assault charges.

The charges stems from an August incident in which investigators say Jones broke into a house and assaulted the woman inside using knife after tying her up with rope. Jones was targeted because of identifiable tattoos on the back of his hand and through the testimony of the victim, which led to the release of a police sketch.

Iredell County authorities charged Jones with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and first-degree burglary.
