When police officers arrived at the scene, they made contact with the victim, a 28-year-old female, who stated that she had to run out of her back door after she had been cut with a knife by her live-in boyfriend — 36-year-old David Neal, of Griffin.
According to a GPD incident report, the victim told officers that she was woken up by Neal, who was holding a knife to her neck. When she attempted to get out of the bed, she was cut on one of her fingers by the knife.
The victim, who did not need EMS to respond to her injury, stated that Neal left the area and was last seen wearing a pair of grey jogging pants. GPD officers spotted him as he was returning to the residence, sweating heavily.
Neal, who was intoxicated when speaking to officers, reportedly told police that he and the victim had argued over sex, as he got out of the bed and left the location. He was then arrested and transported to Spalding County Jail, with officers stating in the report that they intend to take out warrants for aggravated assault under the Family Violence Act.
On Friday, police responded to a location on North Eighth Street in reference to another aggravated assault.
As officers arrived at the location, they made contact with the victim, a 29-year-old male. The victim stated that he heard a knock at his door around 1:15 a.m. that day, and when he opened the door, a black male struck him in the head with a gun.
In a GPD incident report, the suspect was described as a light-skinned man, wearing a grey hoodie, who goes by the street name Boo Man. The victim advised he recognized Boo Man but couldn’t provide Boo Man’s actual name nor his residence.
