Man accused of stabbing woman in the head with glass shard

A Langley man who stabbed a woman in the head with a shard of glass is being held in jail on $10,000 bail, according to court documents.

Just before noon Nov. 19, a man reported to police that his sister was assaulted by 32-year-old Jason W. Bowers at a Langley home.

Deputies with the Island County Sheriff’s Office and medics responded to the home and found the woman had just gotten out of the shower to clean off a large amount of blood from a head injury. She had a rag on her head, but the gash was still bleeding heavily, according to a deputy’s report.

Bowers was not present but was later arrested on suspicion of assault in the second degree.

The woman explained that Bowers had been fighting with another man and tried to stab the other man with a piece of glass. She tried to break them up and Bowers stabbed her in the head with the glass, the report states.

The deputy noted that there was a broken picture frame and a shard of glass in the entryway of the house. He photographed blood all over the bathroom.

Medical personnel bandaged the woman’s head, but the bleeding continued. She was transported to the hospital, where doctors treated the 1.5-inch, gaping laceration on the side of her forehead, the report states.

The report indicates that the woman helps care for Bowers.
