YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A 54-year-old Youngstown woman is charged with felonious assault after allegedly chasing a man from the Union Square plaza, and slashing him with a box cutter.

Police arrested Electa Johnson Sunday evening after a man told police she stabbed him with a box cutter in the face and chest.

Herbert Womack, Jr. claims the trouble began when Johnson began yelling at him outside the Union Square Plaza Save-A-Lot.

Womack told police officers that Johnson started chasing him from the plaza.  He claims she then pulled out a yellow box cutter and began to punch him repeatedly in the upper body. Womack says Johnson then ran away, at which point he noticed he was bleeding.

Police apprehended Johnson outside the Deville Apartment Complex. Meanwhile, Womack was transferred to Northside Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries.

Liberty Police Department informed Youngstown officers at the scene that there had been numerous calls made last week regarding the same two individuals.

Johnson has been arraigned. Her next court hearing is scheduled on July 22.
