A Columbus man is facing charges of kidnapping and domestic violence after he reportedly attacked a woman over the weekend.
Charlie Tamar Owens, 35, of 227 Gregory Road, was arrested Sunday after law enforcement received a call about an assault in the parking lot of an apartment complex on William Robers Road, according to a Lowndes County Sheriff's Office press release.
When deputies arrived at the complex, Applewood Apartments, shortly after 5 a.m., they found the victim, a 31-year-old woman, who had been assaulted and held against her will.
The victim told deputies Owens had been preventing her from leaving the apartment.
Deputies arrested Owens later that day. He is currently in custody at Lowndes County Adult Detention Center. His bond has not been set.
Facing charges in a separate case over the weekend is an Ethelsville, Alabama, man who put a deputy in the hospital when the deputy tried to arrest him for breaking into a home.
David Glenn Cassidy, 33, has been charged with attempted burglary of an occupied dwelling and simple assault on a law enforcement officer, according to a LCSO press release. Deputies received a call at about 8:30 a.m. Friday and found Cassidy attempting to kick in the door of a residence on Mac Davis Road.
He resisted as deputies tried to arrest him, assaulting one deputy who was trying to get him into a patrol vehicle. The deputy had a laceration on his hand and was given stitches at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle. The injured deputy has since been released from the hospital.
Cassidy is currently in Lowndes County Adult Detention Center with bond set at $30,000.
Deputies also arrested a Macon man for 11 counts of false pretense on Friday.
The suspect, Antwin Minye Edwards, 41, is accused of falsifying the number of days worked by employees 11 times while he worked as manager for Maxx Holdings in Lowndes County from fall of 2018 until February, according to a LCSO press release. The company lost more than $9,000.
Edwards is out of custody after posting $27,500 bond.
