CADIZ, KY (WSMV) -

Police in Cadiz arrested Deronta Moss, 28, after a teenager reported being stabbed in an assault at an apartment complex Saturday morning.

According to police, the incident was reported at 5:30 a.m. at Barkley Manor Apartments.

Investigators said Moss, also known as Derrick Bumpus, forced his way into the apartment of LaTosha Woods.

Police said Moss also assaulted a 17-year-old in the apartment with a knife, stabbing the juvenile in the arm. The victim was treated at Trigg County Hospital.

Police said Woods suffered minor injuries, and by the time officers arrived, Moss had fled the scene.

Officers from Cadiz and Murray said they located Moss at a Pine Street home in Murray, where he was taken into custody. Moss had knife wounds to his hands and was treated at a local hospital, police said.

Moss was charged with assault and burglary. He was also served with a warrant for burglary stemming from a Nov. 5 incident in which police said Moss forced his way into Woods' apartment and assaulted her.
