Griffin Police were attempting to arrest Folds, 53, on a warrant for aggravated assault under the Family Violence Act, when he reportedly stabbed a police officer and was shot in the woods at Thomaston Mills Village Park, at Georgia Avenue and North Ninth Street at about 9:15 a.m. April 23.
According to the incident report from April 22, Folds’ estranged wife, age 26, told police that she had taken the children out of the residence that she, Folds and the children shared on D.F. Fuller Drive and had returned with a friend Sunday evening to gather some of their belongings. Her friend told police that after a short time, the wife ran out of the house yelling and screaming for someone to call 911 and said Walter Folds had cut her and was hiding in the house.
