Aggravated Assault, Lexington Road

On January 6th at 2:34 am, ACCPD responded to an Aggravated Assault in progress at a residence on Lexington Road. Upon arrival, ACCPD could hear a struggle inside the residence. ACCPD dispatchers advised our officers that the victim, a 46-year-old female from Athens, reported that she was being attacked. Dispatchers relayed to our officers that she said, “He’s got a baseball bat.” Due to the exigent circumstances, ACCPD forced entry into the residence, locating the suspect and victim. The suspect was detained and ACCPD began providing aid to the victim.

To provide quicker access for an EMS crew, an ACCPD officer forced the back door of the residence open. EMS entered through this door and began providing aid. The EMS crew determined that the victim needed immediate transport and the ACCPD officer helped move and load the stretcher into ambulance. Noting the victim’s condition and need for immediate care, the ACCPD officer drove the ambulance while the EMS crew provided life-saving care.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment. After an ACCPD investigation, the suspect, 51-year-old Christopher Warden of Athens, was arrested for Aggravated Assault and Aggravated Battery.
