Augusta landlord reports attack while seeking rent


A landlord seeking rent Monday said she was struck in the throat and punched in the neck at a house on the 2100 block of Alfred Lane.

The victim, Linda Kitchens, told deputies that she was discussing the overdue rent with Melanie Kaye Love when Love attacked her, a Richmond County sheriff’s report states.

Love, however, maintained that Kitchens came into her house without permission and refused to leave without the rent so she “escorted” Kitchens out of the house, a report states.

Kitchens was instructed on how to press charges.
