A young Warrenton woman wanted by Thomson authorities on an aggravated assault charge stemming from an incident in January has turned herself in to police.
In an unrelated case, a Thomson woman was arrested last week in connection with a separate assault on a victim.
In the nearly six-month old case, Amesha Renae Reynolds, 22, of the 200 block of Macon Highway, surrendered to authorities last Wednesday, according to Thomson Police Department Investigator Capt. Jamie Bridges.
Ms. Reynolds was charged with one count of aggravated assault and placed in jail at the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center.
In a Jan. 12 report filed by Officer Pat Sanders, two women reportedly got into a fight at the Sprint Food Store in Thomson. One of the women received a severe laceration to her left arm after being cut by a woman with a box cutter. The victim was taken to the emergency room of McDuffie Regional Medical Center where she received initial treatment. She later was transferred to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital in Augusta.
In the latest case, a Thomson woman was taken into custody following the reported assault on a local man. Capt. Bridges said Emily Zellers, 23, of the 600 block of Adams Avenue, was arrested June 6 and charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of criminal trespass. She was taken to the McDuffie County Law Enforcement Center following her arrest by Sgt. John James.
Ms. Zellars is accused of stabbing her step-father, 51-year-old Jim Jones at a residence on the 600 block of Adams Avenue on June 5 about 11 p.m. Ms. Zellars reportedly told the investigating officer that her step-father had been "messing" with her mother, police records show.
