An Augusta man was arrested Sunday after shoving his two daughters – ages 10 and 6 – and beating their mother.

Byron Jermaine Coleman, 33, of Miller Street, has been charged with battery, cruelty to children in the second and third degree, and obstruction of a law enforcement officer, Richmond County jail records show.

About 11:15 p.m., Rich­mond County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 2000 block of Steiner Avenue, where they met with Monica May, 33, who told police that Coleman had beaten her, according to an incident report.
When deputies attempted to make contact with Coleman, who was walking south on Steiner Avenue, he fled.

Deputies then returned to May, who told them Coleman had been drinking and was upset because she was texting a male friend.

May said that Coleman choked her before pushing her into a door. Coleman’s two daughters then jumped on him to stop him, allowing May to get away, the report said.

May said she tried to escape to a bathroom, but Coleman caught up to her, threw her on a bed and punched her in the face. Coleman’s 10-year-old daughter jumped on his back, and he shoved her into the headboard on the bed, leaving cuts on the child’s arm and stomach.

Coleman’s mother, Mamie McBride, 60, arrived during the fight, and when Coleman’s 6-year-old daughter opened the door for her, Coleman shoved his daughter to the floor, the report said.

May said that McBride tried to calm her son, but he grabbed his mother by her throat and shoved her into a metal gas stove, injuring her right wrist. Coleman left the house after May called 911.

Deputies obtained warrants for Coleman’s arrest, and he was apprehended several hours later.

No, Excrement

Nope, he's excrement. Thanks for the picture -- @ least he wasn't stupid enough to be wearing his wife beater shirt. Now will Monica dump him, and take him to court for child support. If she goes back to him, then I'll have no more sympathy, except for the girls. Mamie needs to have a "conversation" with her excrement son, since he disrespects her. I could go on, but why ??

chascushman this has not one

chascushman this has not one thing to do with politics.It is about scum beating up on those physically weaker than he is. He is on a power trip and needs to get some of his own medicine. People like him come in all colors and all branches of society, rich and poor.Why anyone would stay with such scum is beyond me. Life is too short not to be happy.
