A woman said that a man struck her with the door of a truck after an altercation Friday night. The man had come to confront a resident on Monroe Street, whom he had been arrested for allegedly assaulting the night before.
When the suspect was driving away in his truck, the victim walked by and the suspect allegedly opened his door, striking her in the head with the door and causing her to fall and hit her head on the street.

A warrant for battery was issued for the suspect.

A juvenile was accused of hitting a girl in the back of the head with a rock, causing a bleeding wound, at Judgement Journey at Faith Baptist Church, 552 Hammett Road, Saturday night. The victim was treated at West Georgia Medical Center for the injury.
Witnesses identified a 15-year-old, who was on probation for an unruly juvenile charge and banned from the property, as the person who threw the rock. The suspect denied it and the victim said she was unsure who threw the rock, but the suspect admitted to throwing rocks at trash cans and had one in his pocket.

Drunken woman damages car
Police responded to the first block of Union Court, where they found an intoxicated woman in her vehicle at her ex-boyfriend’s residence. The ex said the woman had entered the home with a key and tried to climb in bed with him, but he asked her to leave.
The woman told police the man must have flattened her car tire, but an officer said it appeared the tire and rim, along with the side of her vehicle, were damaged from sideswiping something wooden, like a utility pole. Police were unable to determine where she may have hit something, but she was charged with DUI and striking a fixed object after failing breathalyzer and sobriety tests.
