Thomson man indicted in Clarke

A Clarke County grand jury has indicted a Thomson man on charges he assaulted a Winterville woman during an attempted carjacking last month at a Westside shopping center.

The woman thwarted the March 19 attack at the Beechwood shopping center on Alps Road by fighting back and attracting the attention of passersby, including an off-duty police officer, Athens-Clarke police said.

Grand jurors charged Harold Dean McCannon, 48, of McDuffie County, with armed robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault and three counts of possession of a knife during the commission of a felony in the indictment.
