Man charged with punching woman at Jefferson City gas station

Victim knocked unconscious and possibly suffered broken kneecap

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - 22-year-old Jernail Hickmon was arrested on Friday for allegedly knocking a woman unconscious at a Jefferson City gas station.

A car tried to pull into the Break Time on Clark Avenue Thursday night, but a crowd blocking the lot refused to move.

After a long pause, pedestrians stepped aside, and the suspect went to a nearby home. Hickmon allegedly came back with a big kitchen knife and started waving it around.

A woman passenger tried stepping in, but the Hickmon is accused of knocking her unconscious. She went to the hospital in an ambulance for a concussion, serious injuries to her face and a possible broken kneecap.

Police said Hickmon fled the scene, but investigators found him Friday.
