Ga. woman attacked, tortured

  • Follow Latest News

LOVEJOY, Ga. — Police are searching for man they say tortured a woman for hours and nearly killed her in Lovejoy, just south of Atlanta.

WSB-TV reports that the woman remained hospitalized after what police describe as a severe beating in her home on Saturday.

Lovejoy police Sgt. Michael Gaddis said there was blood everywhere in the woman’s house when investigators arrived.

Gaddis said a frying pan with a large hole in the bottom is among evidence collected. Police believe it cracked after being repeatedly smashed on the woman’s head.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation developed a sketch of the suspect. It shows an “NY” tattoo on his neck and another tattoo of two tear drops coming out of his right eye.

Lovejoy is about 25 miles south of Atlanta.

Tattoos

Tattoos can be identified but can't tell race or approximate height, weight or age? This doesn't help the public much in possibly helping to identify the suspect.

Then let's find him, and make sure he is never capable of doing this again. I hope he runs. I hope they take him out, painfully. I hope they make an example of him, that we are done with this type of behavior. And lastly, I agree 'seenitB4'.
