A domestic dispute in Sherman left one woman hospitalized and a man in the Grayson County Jail this week.
Sherman Police Sgt. Brett Mullen said the incident began Wednesday at around 6:30 p.m. when the Sherman Police Department received information from Grayson County Sheriff’s Office in reference to a stabbing that occurred in Sherman.
The victim, who was not identified in the public statement from SPD, called the sheriff’s office from a location outside of Sherman stating she had been stabbed while she was in the 800 block of East Houston Street. The victim was transported to the hospital with a cut across the front and side of her neck. She was treated and released.
Mullen said Sherman patrol officers and detectives responded to the hospital and began an investigation. The victim reported being cut on the neck by her boyfriend, Steven Lynn Yancy, 43, of Sherman, while the two were outside of Wilco Auto Repair at 803 East Houston Street.
The victim was fleeing from Yancy, she said, when he reached into a vehicle and cut her on the neck with a knife before the vehicle could drive away. Mullen said an arrest warrant was obtained for Yancey for aggravated assault date/family/house with a weapon, and immediate actions were taken to determine his whereabouts.
Police arrested Yancy at around 1:45 p.m. on Thursday outside of a residence in the 1800 block of West Houston Street. Yancey was taken into custody without incident or resistance. He was booked into the Grayson County Jail.
Grayson County court records did not list an attorney of record for Yancy on this case and the Herald Democrat could not find a way to contact him regarding this report.
When asked for further information on the case, SPD officer Nic Emmons said police have had prior interactions with both the victim and Yancy in the past. Emmons said he didn’t know the length of the relationship between Yancy and the victim.
