MOULTRIE -- Three men and a juvenile were charged Wednesday in connection with an assault that took place Saturday night.

Christopher Haggins, 17, of 610-B Ninth Ave. N.W., Jakira Anton Strong, 18, of 612 Eighth Ave. N.W., and Darnell Slaughter, 17, of 502 Fifth Ave., N.W., were each charged with aggravated assault and kidnapping. A juvenile was also apprehended and charged in the incident, but a fifth male involved in the incident is currently at large.

A Moultrie police investigator said Strong, Slaughter and the juvenile were in Juvenile Court for another case Tuesday, so he placed them under arrest for warrants against them. An officer searching for Haggins awoke him Tuesday at his residence and placed him under arrest there.

Bruce Daniels reported Saturday that he was assaulted by five men, including Haggins, Strong, Slaughter and the juvenile, at the intersection of Seventh Street Northwest and Fifth Avenue Northwest at 9:03 p.m. Saturday. Police reports said they pulled him out of a Cadillac and hit him in the head with a bottle and punched him several times.

Daniels was taken to Colquitt Regional, and an emergency room doctor told the officer he had a cut on his right ear, right shoulder blade and small cuts to the back of his head.
