HARRISON COUNTY (KYTX) - Harrison County 911 received a call to the address of 210 Hillside Dr. in Harleton, Texas on June 9, 2013 at approximately 1 a.m. for an ambulance and deputies. The call was regarding a stabbing victim at that address. The caller stated the stabbing had occurred at 109 Sid Craver Rd. in Harleton which is the home address of the victim, Rickey Don Johnson, 53.
Johnson had left the location of the stabbing and drove himself to his brother's home at 210 Hillside Dr. for help. He stated he had been stabbed by his girlfriend, Doretha Bowman, 45, after they had been outside the house drinking and she became irate due to a female neighbor wishing him a "Happy Birthday".
Bowman allegedly went inside the residence of Rickey Johnson and when Johnson came into the residence, Bowman reportedly stabbed Johnson in the upper left arm.
Upon arrival at the address where the assault had occurred, deputies found Doretha Bowman on the porch, crying and very upset, while she was waiting for her daughter to come to the location. The suspect then produced a knife that is believed to have been used during the assault.
Johnson was transported to Good Shepherd in Marshall and was treated and released. Bowman was arrested at the location and transported to the Harrison County Jail. She was arraigned by Judge George and bond has been set at $50,000.00.
