A Moultrie man was hospitalized after his girlfriend reportedly stabbed him during a Saturday afternoon domestic dispute at their residence.

Linda Rivera, 34, 409 Third St. N.W., was charged with aggravated assault in the incident.

She is accused of stabbing 44-year-old Frank Pinion.

“This seems to be a family violence incident and she stabbed him,” Moultrie Police Department Inv. Steven Colgan said Monday. “She stabbed him in the arm. It appeared he lost a lot of blood.”

In a Sunday incident at about 1:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Seventh Street Southeast, Melvin Dillard, 55, reported that he was the victim of a robbery at the hands of two women.

Further investigation revealed that Dillard apparently assaulted one of the women, who did not wish to press charges against him, Colgan said.
