Police: Man hits woman, who strikes back hard

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman who reported being assaulted by her boyfriend gave as good as she got, retaliating with a chair and a brick before the man fled.

Alicia Ware told police that she loaned the man her vehicle and after he did not return it she found him in Southwest Moultrie and they left together, arguing until they arrived at a friend’s residence. When they got out he hit her with his fist and she responded by hitting him with a chair.

They then left together and a short time later got out of the vehicle in the 600 block of Seventh Avenue Northwest, where the man hit her again, Ware reported. She then retrieved a brick from the trunk of her car and threw it at the man, who left after being struck by the brick, police reports said.

Ware did not have any visible injuries, police said.

In other reported assaults:

• Dayana Valdez, 1200 block Fifth Street Southwest, reported Friday that a male acquaintance pushed her while she was holding her baby.

Valdez did not have visible injuries, police said.

• Jessica Mancil, 500 block East College Street, Doerun, reported Saturday that when her 2-year-old daughter came home from spending a night with a baby-sitter the child had a hand-shaped mark on her face.

Mancil initially thought the mark was dirt, but upon bathing her children discovered it was a bruise. Sheriff’s investigators and the Department of Family and Children Services were notified, sheriff’s reports said.

• Misty Strickland, 100 block Lee Courthouse Road, reported Saturday that a male relative threw her to the ground during an argument.

Strickland had a torn shirt and bruise on her right arm, sheriff’s reports said. The man was not there when an officer arrived.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
