A Sandusky man accused of cutting a female acquaintance with a knife at his home Saturday night was arraigned Monday morning in Sandusky Municipal court.

James H. Meadows, 50, 1600 block of North Forest Drive, was charged with felonious assault and two counts of felony domestic violence for the incident.

He is being held in Erie County Court on two separate cash bonds, one for $20,000 and the other for $15,000.

The $20,000 bond is for the felonious assault and the $15,000 bond is for the two counts of felony domestic violence.

Sandusky police responded to Meadows' home at 9 p.m. Saturday.

Meadows reportedly got into a heated argument with a 20-year-old female family member who returned home after being gone for two weeks.

The woman told police Meadows tried to punch her, which is when Meadows' alleged victim, a 43-year-old family member, tried to intervene and was pushed into a door, according to reports.

The 20-year-old woman said Meadows then went into the kitchen and grabbed a knife. The 43-year-old woman again tried to intervene and Meadows allegedly cut her on the hand with a knife.

Sandusky officers responded to the scene and took Meadows into custody.

The 43-year-old woman was treated by Sandusky EMS. Both women signed charges against Meadows at the scene.
