Man wanted for felonious assault

STEUBENVILLE - City Police are looking for Sir Damien Harris, 29, of Steubenville on a felonious assault charge in connection with him allegedly throwing a woman through a glass window on Sunday.

Police reported the woman suffered severe cuts on her shoulder and head and will require future surgery to remove glass from her body.

Harris was sentenced in Jefferson County Common Pleas Court to six years in prison in 2006 after pleading guilty to having a weapon as a convicted felon, tampering with evidence and assault. He was released a couple months ago, according to police.

Probation ordered in drug case

STEUBENVILLE - Willis H. Stackhouse, 23, of 104 Wilma Ave. was placed on two years of probation on Monday by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge David Henderson after Stackhouse pleaded guilty to single counts of trafficking in heroin and possession of heroin.

Stackhouse was charged with selling heroin to a drug task force confidential informant on May 25 in the city. He was arrested later at his house and showed officers where a small amount of heroin was located in his bedroom.

Stackhouse, who has no prior convictions, had spent more than four months in the county jail since his arrest.
