Feb. 5: Aggravated assault — Deputies responded to a call about a stabbing at a McIver Road home. The witness who called 911 said a Midway man had sliced the face of the resident. Deputies found blood on the porch and front door, and the resident sitting in a chair with a bloodied shirt over the left side of his face. Deputies told the resident that they would treat him in an ambulance until air assistance arrived.
The witness told deputies a Midway man came to the house and began arguing with the resident’s wife. When the resident arrived home, he asked the Midway man to collect his belongings and leave. The Midway man began to argue with the resident and pushed him, the witness recalled. The men started fighting and the witness attempted to separate the two, according to the LCSO report. The witness said the Midway man then walked toward the door, grabbed a hammer and swung it at the resident. The witness said he took the hammer from the Midway man, and at that point the men began fighting again. The witness said he again broke up the fight and told the men he was going to call the police.
When he left the room to retrieve his phone, the witness heard the resident’s wife yelling that the Midway man had cut her husband’s face. The witness then called 911.
Violate family-violence order — A Midway woman, who had reported her estranged husband had criminally trespassed several days before, told deputies he had violated a protective order she had against him. Deputies arrested the man for violation of a family-violence order, for theft by conversion and theft by taking.
While in a patrol car waiting to be taken to jail, the estranged husband sent his wife two text messages, according to the LCSO report. The first message was a picture of himself in the back of the patrol car with the words “Thank U.” The second message the estranged husband sent his wife said, “On the way to where u wanted me, love u!” He then placed a call to her cell phone from jail, deputies reported.
Harassing phone calls — An Allenhurst man told deputies a Hinesville woman who had taken a restraining order against him called him 21 times throughout the day. The man would not answer the calls so the woman left messages on his phone.
Verbal dispute —A John Wells Road woman told deputies she and her mother-in-law argued over her husband getting a new job in another state. The woman said her mother-in-law was upset because this meant the grandparents would not be able to see the grandchildren. The woman said she called police because she wanted to end the argument. The mother-in-law told deputies she owns the home and was invited over by her son. She said the home was in disorder and that the rent had not been paid on time. The mother-in-law showed deputies copies of utility bills, which were in her name. Deputies suggested she let magistrate court handle the matter, according to the LCSO report. There were no signs of physical injury and both the woman and mother-in-law were advised to stay away from one another until they could be civil, according to the LCSO report.
