An argument over shoe sales led to a man being stabbed and taken to the Atlanta Medical Center.
According to a press release from the Griffin Police Department, officers responded to a man needing medical assistance at 805 North Ave. early Monday morning.
The injured man, Tyrone Billingsley, was airlifted to the medical center. Shortly afterward, Ciara Lafayette Settles and Lisa Denise Walden were located, interveiwed and arrested.
According to the release, the two women were purchasing shoes from Billingsley when an argument broke out.
Billingsley punched Walden and walked away. Walden attempted to run over Billingsley, then retrieved a knife from her husband’s fantasy knife collection, which she had in her car.
The two women then attacked Billingsley, Walden with the knife and Settles with blows from a board to his head. Billingsley received an abdominal wound resulting in evisceration, as well as other wounds on his arms and body.
As a result of his injuries, Billingsley was airlifted to the Atlanta Medical Center, where he remains in critical condition on a ventilator. It is unknown whether or not he will recover from his injuries.
Settles and Walden are in the Spalding County Jail, awaiting preliminary hearings on charges of aggravated assault.
