Valdosta man hospitalized after assault

Aggravated Assault on Mary ST.

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A man is in the hospital after being injured during a fight in Valdosta.

According to the Valdosta Police Department, it happened near the 240 block of Knox Drive.

Two men were involved in a heated altercation late Sunday night when one assaulted the other with a “knife cutting tool.”

Neighbors said that this type of incident is unusual for their neighborhood.

“That’s crazy. In the world today, we all need to get along. All that right there was probably just senseless. Whatever it was, it could’ve been worked out, talked through, instead of physical violence," said resident Thomas Bethay.

The police department said this investigation is active and ongoing but there has been a person of interest identified in this case.

The victim is still receiving treatment at a hospital nearby. There has been no word on his current condition.
