Man injured in fight between girlfriend, ex

by Wes Mayer

A victim was taken to the hospital Thursday after attempting to stop a fight between his girlfriend and ex-girlfriend, according to authorities.

Around 4:23 p.m., Officer Doug Jones with the Newnan Police Department met with the victim at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. According to Jones' report, the victim was assaulted while trying to break up the fight.

The victim told Jones that he and his girlfriend had gone to a home on Frank Street to hang out with friends earlier that day.

The victim's ex-girlfriend showed up at the home later and began to argue with the victim's girlfriend.

The fight escalated into a physical fight in the middle of Frank Street.

The victim tried to break up the fight, but the ex-girlfriend turned on him, the victim told Jones.

According to Jones' report, the ex-girlfriend scratched the victim's inner thigh with her nails, grabbed his scrotum and pulled, tearing it open.

The fight ended and it wasn't until later when the victim realized he was injured. He was then taken to the hospital.

According to Jones' report, the victim refused to write a written statement and did not want to press any aggravated assault charges on his ex-girlfriend.
