ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Dougherty County's top prosecutor says while the number of domestic abuse cases is down slightly, he's concerned that the cases are becoming more violent.
There were two domestic attacks Sunday night in Dougherty County.
Albany Police charged 37 year old Dana Britton with aggravated assault. They say late Sunday afternoon she cut the woman she lives with several times with a pocket knife. Cerita Stephens was treated at a hospital and released.
Around the same time, Dougherty County Police say 29 year old Aaron Bennet struck Melissa Ann Guzmand with his car on Tiger Court while she was putting their one month old daughter in her car seat in another vehicle. The child was not injured. Guzmand suffered a broken finger, leg injuries, and cuts and bruises.
District Attorney Greg Edwards says he sees a troubling increase in violence in domestic disputes. "It's been remarkable violence, and there is no real explanation for it. But it seems to be a phenomenon that we have to address," said Edwards.
Dougherty County Police issued aggravated assault and reckless conduct charges against Aaron Bennet, who they say lives in Douglas.
If you have any information about him, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
More details now, domestic violence case in Albany are actually down from last year.
