According to a GPD incident report, two sisters — 20 and 33 years old, respectively — had been fighting in the living room of the residence, and when officers arrived at the scene, they learned that the fight started over one sister calling the other sister a “prostitute.”
The 20-year-old female stated to police officers that her sister had called her a “prostitute” and that she didn’t know who her baby’s father was. Admitting in the report that she was hot-tempered, the 20-year old female then jumped in her sister’s face and slapped her.
The 33-year-old female then grabbed her sister’s hair, to which the 20-year-old responded by biting her sister in the stomach.
Police took the two juveniles, who had reportedly witnessed the incident, outside and asked them what happened. Both essentially confirmed the account by the 20-year-old female.
While EMS arrived at the scene to check out bite marks on the 33-year-old female, police contacted a judge to inquire who to charge. The judge advised to charge the 20-year-old because she threw the first punch. Police subsequently arrested the 20-year-old female, transported her to Spalding County Jail and charged her with battery family violence.
In another incident, to which police responded at around 1:30 p.m. on Friday, officers were called to a residence on North 12th Street in reference to a strong-arm robbery.
As officers arrived at the scene, they made contact with the victim, a 55-year-old black male, who reportedly had scraping on his forehead and nose. The victim, who appeared to police to be intoxicated, stated that a friend of his nephew was in the front yard of his house and hit him in the face.
Being knocked to the ground by the hit, the victim stated that his nephew’s friend then took $295 that he was holding in his hand and fled on foot toward Hallyburton Street. Asked why he had the money out, the victim, while opening another beer, stated he was counting it to make sure he had enough to pay a bill.
The victim could not provide an address or contact information for his nephew. He denied medical treatment multiple times.
