A man and his son are wanted in connection to a battery incident that happened Friday afternoon at a local metals/wrecking yard.
Bulloch County Sheriff’s investigators are seeking James Jeffrey Stubbs, 48, and Kyler James Stubbs, 19, both of Mike Brannen Road in Register, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson.
Deputies were called to Stubb’s Wrecking Yard, owned by the suspects’ family, on U.S. 301 South Friday afternoon around 2:20 p.m., he said. There, a 57-year-old male victim suffering from facial injuries told deputies he had been assaulted by the suspects “for unknown reasons,” he said.
“The victim stated he did not know either suspect and had no idea why the assault had taken place,” he said. The victim was taken to the hospital by Bulloch County EMS, and Bulloch County Sheriff’s Sgt. Kenny Thompson issued warrants for the suspects’ arrests on battery charges.
James Jeffrey Stubbs has an extensive criminal history including prior battery and assault arrests. He is described as standing 5’8”, weighing around 160 pounds, blue eyes, has blond hair and is balding, with a moustache and a graying beard.
Kylar Stubbs is described as standing 5’4”, weighing around 177 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes, a moustache and a slight beard.
Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to contact the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office at 764-1771, asking for Thompson, or 7764-8888, asking for a warrants deputy.
All calls will remain confidential, Anderson said.
