Deputies investigate report of assault at Augusta residence

A man was hospitalized after a possible stabbing at an Amanda Circle residence Tuesday night.


Deputies responded to the call at 11 p.m. after the report of a possible assault, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

A deputy spoke with the wife of Greg L. Rachels, 40, of Augusta, who stated that her husband had been in a physical altercation with a man, the police report states.

A witness told the deputy that he was inside of his Amanda Circle residence when he heard what sounded like someone fighting and went outside to find Rachels and his wife fighting with a man, according to the police report.

The witness told the deputy that he broke up the fight and saw that Rachels had a small laceration to the lower left side of his back, the police report states.

The deputy was unable to determine who was the suspect or the victim, due to conflicting stories. Rachels was uncooperative, according to the police report.

Rachels was taken to AU Medical Center for treatment.
