ST. CLOUD (KNSI) - A man is jailed after allegedly threatening and trying to choke a woman. 

St. Cloud Police Sergeant Jason Burke says officers were called to the scene of an assault in progress Tuesday morning just before 2 a.m. 

When they arrived at the address, located along the 1800 block of 15th Avenue SE, the 28 year-old female victim told them 30 year-old Darrell Dixon of St. Cloud had tried to choke her. 

She said she had tried to defend herself against Dixon by stabbing him in the leg with a pocket knife. 

Dixon was taken to St. Cloud Hospital for treatment of a stab wound and later transported to Sherburne County Jail.

He is being held without bail on charges of gross misdemeanor domestic assault, and the case is being reviewed for possible charges against the victim as well.
