‘I need help’: J.C. stabbing suspect says no one’s listened to him

Sanders L. Dixon

A Massachusetts man told a Washington County judge during his arraignment Tuesday on attempted murder charges that he needs help and no one would listen to him about it.

Sanders L. Dixon, 22, 38 High St., Apt. 101, Springfield, Mass., was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. According to police, Dixon stabbed his pregnant girlfriend, Toni Johnson, 18, of Johnson City, in the back as she was about to board a city transit bus following an argument between the two.

Court records indicate that Johnson and Dixon were in the process of breaking up and he was having a problem with it. She told police Dixon was waiting for her outside her East Watauga Avenue residence Monday morning when she left for a doctor’s appointment.
