The Sherman Police Department announced the arrest of a man Tuesday in connection with an aggravated assault which occurred last week and sent a woman to the hospital.

In an emailed statement, the department said officers arrested John Kennedy, 57, of Sherman, without incident on a felony charge of assault on a family or household member, while impeding breath or circulation.

The alleged assault occurred at a residence in the 600 block of Contemporary Street on Jan. 5 and led to the hospitalization of a 53-year-old woman. The woman, who was not identified in the release, was initially taken to Wilson N. Jones, but was later flown to a hospital in the Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex by air ambulance.

The release did not detail the extent of woman’s injuries, but Mullen said she was still alive as of Tuesday morning.

Kennedy was arrested at the home where officers initially responded. The investigation ongoing.
