Stabbing Suspect Arrested

According to court documents, a Philadelphia man, who is wanted in connection to a stabbing incident in Altoona in early November, was arrested in Harrisburg.

Authorities say Moses Jones Jr., who Altoona police say was stabbed on Nov. 9 after he assaulted a woman in her apartment, was arrested on Nov. 15 in Dauphin County on felony drug and gun charges.

Police say Jones broke into the woman’s apartment and assaulted her over a “stolen bike,” which investigators say the woman knew nothing about, as she did not even know who Jones was.

Investigators say Jones had fled from UPMC Altoona after being treated for injuries sustained when the woman stabbed him.

Jones is currently being housed at the Dauphin County Prison on $50,000 bail.
