North Tonawanda man stabbed in buttocks after dispute over cigarette in Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS - A 23-year-old woman was charged Monday night with stabbing a man in the buttocks in a home on the 200 block of 70th Street, according to a city police report.

Shaquana A. Jones, of 70th Street, was charged with second-degree assault after the stabbing, which happened shortly before 10:30 p.m.

The victim, a North Tonawanda man, told police he was in the bedroom with the woman when she asked for one of his cigarettes. He said no, but she took one anyway. When he tried to grab it out of her mouth, she bit him on the wrist, he told police.

The victim was getting his belongings together, according to the report, when Jones told him she was going downstairs to get a knife. She returned with a knife and a struggle ensued. She dropped the knife, but then picked it back up and stabbed him just above the right buttocks, according to the police report.

The victim left and started walking down 70th Street. An ambulance arrived and transported him to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. Jones, who was also wanted on two warrants, was arrested at her home.
