Kenner man stabs wife

 Kenner-On Saturday, February 20, 2016, the Kenner Police Department arrested and charged Damon Fleming, 50, of 800 27th Street, Kenner, with the crime of aggravated battery involving domestic violence. 

 Damon Fleming and his wife began arguing shortly after midnight Saturday morning.  Damon Fleming had returned home intoxicated.  The arguing escalated into a physical altercation.  Damon Fleming armed himself with a kitchen knife and stabbed his wife. The victim sustained a laceration to her cheek/temple area and a stab wound to her left knee/thigh area before she grabbed the knife away from him. The wife was transported to Ochsner Kenner where she was treated and released. Damon Fleming sustained a minor laceration to his hand.  

 The investigation revealed Damon Fleming was the dominate aggressor concerning this domestic incident, thus his wife was NOT arrested NOR charged with any crime.  It should be noted that at the time of arrest; Damon Fleming had an existing warrant for the crime of aggravated battery.  Damon Fleming had battered the same victim on January 20, 2016, in the 4600 block of Airline Drive, in Metairie.  The victim in that incident also received medical treatment and stitches.    

 At the time of this press release, Damon Fleming remains in custody, no bond has been set.
