A Racine man did not appear in court Tuesday, where he was to have made his initial appearance on charges that in August he cut someone with a box cutter.

Jordan Monet James, 24, is charged with burglary while committing a battery, second-degree reckless injury while using a dangerous weapon, substantial battery while using a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct while using a dangerous weapon.

The charges were originally filed in January, and in February, they set the initial appearance date. A warrant is out for his arrest.

According to court records, Mount Pleasant Police were sent to the 1300 block of Oakes Road on Aug. 28, for a report that someone had been cut with a box cutter.

Police found several bloody items – including the box cutter – inside the apartment. Witnesses told officers that James came into the apartment and attacked someone else. The victim left the house with blood coming from his head. He needed staples to close two cuts on his head, according to the complaint.

The renter of the apartment where the incident took place said James was believed to have broken in through a window.
