JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

Deputies in Washington County are investigating a fight over a woman that happened Wednesday night on Methodist Ridge.

The victim, a 51-year-old man from Jonesborough, TN, was found on Telford Road after the attack with blood all over him. The victim asked a citizen for help, who then called police.

Police said the victim had severe lacerations on his head, face, and left arm. The victim told police that he had been attacked with an unknown object and a liquor bottle after he allegedly hired a woman earlier that day. EMS took the victim to the hospital to be treated for his lacerations.

The citizen who called police, told investigators he saw a grey Dodge van parked across the street from where the altercation occurred – but he could not make out the license plate number because the van drove off.

The Jonesborough Police Department later stopped a silver Dodge van on Jackson and Headtown Roads. Police questioned the driver and the passenger of the van. The passenger, Jack Johnson, told officers he was in a fight with the victim over money that was owed.

According to a police report, the victim allegedly hired Johnson’s girlfriend earlier in the day. The driver of the grey van signed a statement saying, after Johnson discovered where his girlfriend had been, Johnson asked him to take him to the victim’s residence with the intention to fight.

The victim stated he was also attacked by a dog during the fight, but the dog belonged to another person who lived in the home.

Johnson has been charged with aggravated assault and was served two outstanding warrants. The driver of the van was charged with accessory.
