Jamestown man cited for assault

Anthony Hardin

Jamestown Police Department has updated information on a reported aggravated domestic assault in Jamestown on Tuesday, saying the case is not likely a stabbing but is still under investigation.

Police responded to 514 1st Ave. S at 7:49 p.m., said Jamestown Police Sgt. Ryan Goff. The residence was the home of Anthony Travis Hardin, 38, and his 58-year-old wife.

Officers detained Hardin without incident at the scene and transported him to the Stutsman County Law Enforcement Center. He was interviewed and placed under arrest for aggravated domestic assault.

“It doesn't really appear at this point that it was an actual stabbing but more so that a knife was involved,” Goff said. “There were not actual stab wounds but more like superficial cuts.”  

It was reported Tuesday night that the woman had knife wounds to her hand and foot that were nonlife-threatening. Jamestown Area Ambulance personnel treated the woman at the scene, according to Tuesday's report.

The woman was transported to Jamestown Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries, according to Goff on Wednesday. The status of her condition is not known at this time, he said.

Hardin is in the Stutsman County Correctional Center as of Wednesday morning, Goff said.

Both Hardin and his wife have had prior contact with Jamestown Police Department, he said.
