Bond has been denied to a 23-year-old man
charged with aggravated assault for attacking a female worker at the Ameristar Casino in Vicksburg.

Police Chief Walter Armstrong says Clarence Jones is accused of using a pocketknife in an attack on 23-year-old Jordan Melton Friday night.

Armstrong says Melton is in stable condition at a
local hospital with multiple stab wounds.

Armstrong says Melton is Jones' ex-girlfriend. Police say there was already a restraining order against Jones from Warren County.

The police chief says Jones showed up at the casino, followed Melton around and then attacked her. He says casino security and patrons pulled Jones off the woman. The attack was caught on casino surveillance cameras.
