by Wes Mayer

A man suspected of assaulting another man with an axe handle was arrested by Coweta County authorities on Monday.

The incident occurred around 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 5, when the victim was helping Jimmy Shawn Reagor, 26, move some items at Reagor’s residence on the 100-block of Brandy Lane, said Lt. Col. Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office. At the residence, while the victim was helping Reagor, Reagor allegedly accused the victim of stealing from him and proceeded to hit him in the face two times with an axe handle.

One of the victim’s eye sockets and nose was broken in the assault. The victim has been released from the hospital, but may require plastic surgery, Yarbrough said.

On Monday, authorities received information that Reagor was making threatening phone calls, Yarbrough said. Deputies were then able to locate Reagor at his residence.
