According to a GPD incident report, one of the victims — a 26-year-old black female — stated that four males kicked in the back door of the residence and entered the home armed with guns.
The suspects then reportedly separated the female victim and her four children from her 32-year-old boyfriend. While the female victim and her children were moved into the living room, the boyfriend was beaten and pistol-whipped. Police officers later called EMS to the scene, but the boyfriend refused medical treatment.
The suspects reportedly went through the whole house looking for something and ended up taking the boyfriend’s cellphone as well as prescription drugs — one bottle of Klonopin and three bottles of Tompox.
One suspect was described as having light skin and a tattoo of Batman on his inner calf. Another suspect was described as having dreads with gold or blond stripes.
The case is still under investigation, and the GPD is asking anyone with information concerning the case to contact Sgt. Dwayne Hancock, who is heading the investigation, at 770-229-6452, Extension 526.
In another incident that took place Friday afternoon, police responded to a hit and run at the intersection of North Ninth Street and West Chappell Street.
When arriving at the scene, an officer made contact with two males who stated that they were traveling south on North Ninth Street, getting ready to turn onto West Chappell Street, when their vehicle was struck in the rear by another vehicle.
After their vehicle came to rest, the two males looked behind them and saw a green Ford Ranger turn right onto West Chappell Street, leaving the scene. They could not provide any additional information, other than reporting that the driver of the Ford was a white male.
After officers completed the accident report on the hit and run, one of the two males — Thaddeus Jackson of Griffin — was arrested for driving on a suspended license. The hit and run case, meanwhile, is being investigated by the GPD’s Uniform Patrol Division.
