‘He continued to stalk her,’ brother of stabbing victim says of ex-boyfriend

A Macon woman’s tires were slashed, then she wound up in the hospital with a stab wound Monday.

Ike Jackson Jr., 30, was arrested later in the afternoon on charges including aggravated assault and armed robbery, authorities said.

Just before noon, Bibb County sheriff’s deputies were called to a stabbing in the 3600 block of Hillcrest Avenue.

Tameka Burrell, 33, was wounded in the side in a confrontation with her ex-boyfriend, said Cedric Rozier, Burrell’s brother.

“She was trying to get away from him,” said Rozier, who took off from work and rushed home after getting his sister’s call.

Deputies had a man in handcuffs at the scene.

Macon-Bibb County firefighters tended to his bloody hand as paramedics took care of Burrell in an ambulance.

Rozier said his sister’s car tires had recently been slashed after she broke off the relationship.

“She took all the precautions she needed as far as pressing charges and to get away from him,” Rozier said. “He just showed up today insisting they be together and she said ‘no.’”
