PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) - A Pascagoula man is in jail after what police say appears to be a domestic dispute.

According to Keith Ray Douglas, 32, while he and Joshua Ringl, 21, were working at Classy Chassis in Pascagoula, he stole Mr. Ringl's cell phone and saw where Ringl had sent and received text messages from Douglas' girlfriend, 38-year-old Dixie Nall.

Police say Douglas then drove to the city of Moss Point, to an apartment at 3400 Dantzler Avenue where he assaulted Ms. Nall and forced her, at knife point, into her own truck and drove back to Classy Chassis.

According to police reports, Douglas confronted and then assaulted Ringl with a knife and stabbed Ringl numerous times.

Ringl is in stable condition at Singing River Hospital. Ms. Nall was not injured in the encounter.

Douglas is in the Pascagoula Municipal Jail awaiting his bond hearing. The Moss Point Police Department is assisting in the investigation.
