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.
