LAFOLLETTE, Tenn. (WATE) — A woman was stabbed Friday, Aug. 5 after attempting to provide mobile crisis services by transferring a man to the Tennova Hospital.

Angela Worley, 54, of Jacksboro, was contacted by Cameron Jones, 40, of LaFollette so that she could help him pick up his truck from the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office parking lot.

Worley is an administrative employee who helps with mobile crisis services. She said that she told Jones that she would pick him up after work.

According to LaFollette Police, Worley was on her way to get Jones, when she saw him walking down the road. She stopped and picked him up.

Worley said that Jones wanted to park his truck at the First Volunteer Bank and then asked her to take him to mobile crisis services. Before going to the Tennova Hospital, they went to a Long Johns drive-through because Jones wanted to eat.

According to the police report, Jones started pointing a BB gun at the Long Johns worker which Worley then took from him and put it under her seat.

Worley drove around while Jones ate and then came to a road near Hollingsworth Meat Market. Worley said that during a conversation with Jones she realized that he had already been to mobile crisis and offered to take him back to his truck to go to the hospital or home.

Jones then changed the gear to Worley’s car to park and started stabbing her.

Worley said that she tried to defend herself then got out of the car and flagged another driver for help. Jones drove away with her car, according to the police report.

A driver stopped and drove Worley to the Tennova Emergency Room where she was later transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center.

Dispatch received a call from the hospital stating that Jones was there. When police arrived at Tennova ER, the suspect was on the ground and visibly upset. Police reported that he was covered in blood and saying, “Oh my God, I can’t believe they did this to her.”

Jones claims that someone tried to pull Worley from the car and he pulled out a knife to protect her.

Worley had reports of injuries on her neck, arm and chest. She is currently in stable condition, LaFollette Police said.

Jones was arrested for the incident and charged with attempted first-degree homicide. He is being held in Knox County Jail and waiting for his court appearance.
