MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man reported he got into a physical fight with a male acquaintance Tuesday night because he would not give the acquaintance a knife to kill another man.

Pedro Nabarro reported the incident to police after the male acquaintance followed him to a friend’s residence on Fourth Street Northwest. An officer was called to the residence at 11:14 p.m. Tuesday, shortly after the fight took place.

Police reports said Nabarro and the witness who contacted police were at the witness’ home of Fourth Street Northwest. Nabarro told the officer the male acquaintance had followed him to the house and wanted Nabarro to give him a knife so he could kill another unknown man.

Nabarro refused to give the acquaintance a knife, and reports said the two men got into a verbal argument. Nabarro told the acquaintance to leave the witness’ house, and that was when the acquaintance began the physical fight.

Nabarro was bleeding and had bruises on his neck and left ear after being punched several times by the male acquaintance, reports said. A second officer went to a residence where Nabarro believed the acquaintance was at, but he was unable to find the acquaintance.
