A West Point man is in jail after an altercation with his landlord led to his arrest for aggravated assault.

Officers with the West Point Police Department arrested 24-year-old Keon Devonte Webb on Wednesday, Oct. 11, after a dispute with the male victim escalated into a physical altercation.

West Point Police Chief Avery Cook told the Daily Times Leader the victim suffered a broken nose and a couple of broken ribs in the fight.

"Because it caused those kinds of injuries, the charge was warranted," Cook said. "(The victim) is okay and has since been released from the hospital."

Webb is currently in the Clay County Jail with bond set at $50,000.

Cook said Webb has already been arraigned in West Point Municipal Court and will see his case go to grand jury when the next term begins in April.

If found guilty of aggravated assault, Webb could face up to 20 years in prison.
