COLUMBIA — A Moberly man was arrested Monday in connection with an attack on his ex-girlfriend, Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Officer Latisha Stroer said.

Between 5 and 7 p.m. Sunday, a woman was attacked outside her home in the 2500 block of Quail Drive. Police believe the suspect, Mark Dwayne Jones, had an unknown woman helping him.

The accomplice grabbed the victim's hair through an open car window while Jones attacked the ex-girlfriend with a straight razor, Stroer said.

The victim suffered a cut to her right hand and head which required medical help.

The victim had a full order of protection against Jones that is set to expire next month. It was issued July 18, 2012, and ordered the suspect not to abuse, threaten to abuse, stalk, molest or disturb the peace of wherever the victim may be; not to go to the victim's home; and not to communicate with her.

Jones is charged with armed criminal action, violation of order of protection and domestic assault. The bond values total $55,500, of which $50,000 is cash only.
