Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies recently went to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center to meet a woman who was allegedly assaulted by her step-brother at their residence on Chandler Bridge Rd.

The woman said she made a comment to the step-brother about him eating the last portion of a meal and that reportedly made him mad. The woman said he hit her in the head above her eye and she was knocked unconscious. She said she didn’t wake up until she got to the hospital.

The woman’s step-father took her to the hospital. He said he heard the argument, but didn’t witness an assault. Deputies went to the residence, but did not find the step-brother.


A woman on Cabin Creek Rd. complained to JCSO deputies about a suspicious neighbor claiming he was looking for a dog. Other neighbors had the same complaint as the woman.

The woman said the man came to her back door and asked if she had seen his dog. The woman told him no and said the man asked her if anyone else was in the house. When he asked, she said she closed and locked the door.

The woman said on an earlier date, a friend was house-sitting for her and the man came by asking about his dog. On that incident, the man reportedly demanded the friend let him inside. In another incident, the woman said she heard someone under her front porch when her children were walking to the school bus. When she went inside, she heard someone yell, “why did you go over there? Are you crazy.”

The man denied the allegations when he was served a criminal trespass warning.
