Man brutalized with 'sock of rocks'

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man says he took a beating, not with a club or a gun, but with a sock full of rocks, outside a bar.

Just before midnight Wednesday, Montrell Williams said a man approached him as he left the Southside Pool Room in the 300 block of West Highland and asked for his phone number.

When refused to give it, the man attacked him with a sock loaded with rocks.

Paramedics took Williams to the hospital where he was treated and released.

No one has been arrested.
