A man accused of stabbing his cousin in July was recently apprehended after a police officer found him hiding under attic insulation, according to a Macon police report.
Reginald King, 24, is charged with aggravated assault and is being held at the Bibb County jail on $25,650 bond.
King allegedly stabbed 24-year-old Christopher Jones in the chest during a fight in the 500 block of Grenada Terrace on July 25, 2009, Macon police Lt. Eric Walker said.
A police investigator went to a house in the 3700 block of Travis Boulevard on Jan. 14 to arrest King after getting a Macon Regional CrimeStoppers tip that he was hiding at the house, according to the police report released Wednesday.

When the investigator knocked on the door, 21-year-old Tiffany Paul said she hadn’t seen King in two months. Police describe Paul as King’s girlfriend and the mother of his young children, according to the report.
Members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force searched the house and found King hiding under insulation lining the attic. King was arrested without incident.
As the police investigator attempted to arrest Paul on charges of hindering the apprehension of a wanted fugitive, she grabbed the investigator’s genitalia, according to the report.
Paul continued to attempt to grab the investigator again and was verbally abusive as he walked her to a police car. Additionally, she is charged with sexual battery and simple battery on a law enforcement officer, according to police.
Paul is being held at the Bibb County jail on $9,610 bond, according to jail records.
