WAGNER - A Wagner man is in stable condition after being stabbed in the forehead on Friday, and one person has been charged with aggravated domestic assault.

Wagner police responded to a 911 call on Friday morning reporting a male was stabbed in the forehead by a woman who was still armed, according to court documents.

Upon arrival at the North Street Northeast residence, officers found a man standing on the porch bleeding from the forehead.

He said Wileen Rouse stabbed him and he took the knife away. Rouse then allegedly picked up a 13-inch knife and began choking the victim with it, according to court documents.

The 29-year-old victim told police he could not see out of his left eye following the attack, but court documents list him in stable condition after receiving treatment at a Wagner hospital.

Rouse later admitted to hitting the victim in the face with an object, but said she didn't know what the object was.

Rouse is being held on a $5,000 cash bond at the Charles Mix County Jail and was appointed attorney Jake Fischer, of Corsica. She is charged with felony aggravated domestic assault, which carries a maximum punishment upon conviction of up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
