Tribune carrier assaulted

A Kokomo Tribune news carrier was assaulted early Christmas morning just before starting his rounds, Galveston town marshals confirmed Monday.

Deputy town marshal Mike Clark said Kenny Jackson was arriving about 3:20 a.m. at the storage facility, next to the Gas America station on U.S. 35.

Clark said Jackson was in the process of loading newspapers when the assailant walked up and demanded money.

“He wanted money. [Jackson] told him he didn’t have any money,” Clark said.

At that point, the assailant showed a knife, and Jackson apparently tried to take it away.

Clark said Jackson sustained a cut on his hand, and then tried to kick the assailant. But the attacker grabbed Jackson’s foot and stabbed Jackson in the upper leg.

He then fled south toward a local trailer park. Jackson managed to get help at the gas station and was then transported to St. Joseph Hospital, where he was treated and released, Clark said.

Jackson described the suspect as a tall, slender, white male, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and a white ski mask over his face.

Galveston marshals are asking anyone with information on the case to contact them at (574) 699-7453.
