DeKALB | An argument between two roommates ended in a physical confrontation leaving one injured from knife wounds Sunday, around 10:39 p.m. Feb. 27.

Jasmine A. Evans, 21, of the 1000 block of Regent Drive, was charged with aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony punishable by up to seven years in prison and aggravated battery, a Class 3 felony and could face up to five years in prison.

A witness was present at the scene and was able to grab Evans and hold her to the ground after she refused to give up the knife, according to court documents.

“The victim was treated with a couple of minor wounds above her eye and the back of her neck before being released from Kishwaukee Hospital,” said Dekalb Police Lt. Gary Spangler.

Evans, an NIU student, was charged with domestic battery because the victim was a member of the same household, Spangler said.

Evans bond is set at $20,000. She was released Monday.

She is due in court on March 8 and will be represented by the public defenders office.
