ALBANY, Ga. -- A disagreement led to an ex-boyfriend stabbing a woman in the back, an Albany Police Department official said.

In an unrelated aggravated assault a man is wanted for shooting a gun into the ceiling while robbing a residence full of children.

Police would like the community's help in finding Johnathan Dewayne Ross, 35, aka "J," in connection with a 12:25 a.m. Friday stabbing on the 2100 block of Dervan Street.

"Lashonda Jones, 21, reported that Ross stabbed her in the back after a disagreement," APD spokeswoman Phyllis Banks said. "Afterwards he fled the scene on foot."

Jones was taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for treatment. She was discharged the same day, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Ross is wanted for aggravated assault, the report stated. The report described Ross as 5 foot, 8 inches tall, weighing about 127 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. His last known address is 324 Carriage Lane.

In connection with the shooting incident, police are looking for Jonterria Marquaski Seay, 21, a police report stated. He is about 5 foot, 8 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.

Just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, a man knocked on the door of a residence on the 1400 block of East Second Avenue, the report stated. One of the residents opened the door and had a gun pointed at her.

"The suspect then entered the residence and pointed the gun at several other individuals," the report stated.

The suspect shot the gun into the ceiling while three adults and four children, from 1 year old to 13, watched, Banks said. He then ran away.

No information on what was stolen was immediately available.
