A Warren County grand jury has indicted a West Chester man who police say attempted to stab another man in a Mason bar brawl.
Joshua Donahue, 35, has been charged with two counts of second-degree felonious assault, three counts carrying a concealed weapon and two counts improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle, fourth-degree felonies, and tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony.
According to police reports, the incident occurred in the late night hours of Dec. 13 at the Lucky Dog Grille on Reading Road in Mason. Police say an altercation erupted outside the bar between Donahue and the alleged victim when Donahue allegedly attempted to stab the man.
Donahue left the scene with his girlfriend and brandished a weapon at the alleged victim from his car before being apprehended by police, according to police reports.
Police say they found two knives on Donahue’s person in addition to a loaded gun found in the purse of a passenger in the vehicle belonging to Donahue and a butterfly knife and gun magazine in the vehicle.
Donahue faces 28 years in prison if convicted of the charges. He is out of jail on a $250,000 bond.
