JAMESTOWN -- A Jamestown couple who allegedly assaulted each other with weapons -- a knife and a fireplace poker -- were charged with felonies Monday in Southeast District Court in Jamestown.

Rodney Dale Daulton, 49, was charged with aggravated assault and three counts of terrorizing. Barbara Lynn Daulton, 39, same address, was charged with aggravated assault.

Jamestown Police Chief Scott Edinger said police officers were called to the home twice on Sunday -- the first at 9:12 p.m. then again at 11:44 p.m. The first time police officers were at their house, Barbara said she wanted Ronald out of the house. Officers asked Ronald to leave, but he refused. He agreed to move to another room, which he did.

Later that evening Barbara found text messages on Ronald’s phone from another woman to Ronald, according to court documents. Barbara allegedly stabbed Ronald’s phone and threw it at him and allegedly cut his ankle with the knife.  Ronald allegedly grabbed a fireplace poker and chased Barbara through the house and knocked her down, according to court documents. He allegedly hit Barbara in her side with the poker, causing bruising. Relatives in the home eventually broke up the altercation as police were called.
