A man wanted in three separate aggravated assault attacks ended up in jail Monday after he attacked several victims Saturday in a Pine Street home.

Albert Gustaveous Weaver, 41, of West Jones Avenue, remains in jail without bond on aggravated assault and possibly other pending charges, said Statesboro Police Det. Sgt. Patrick Haralson.

Around 5:10 p.m. Saturday evening, Weaver went to the Pine Street location where the mother of his child was staying, he said. Becoming angry because two other men were there, Weaver kicked in a door, choked the woman and then struck her mother, who tried to intervene.

Then the other men entered the fray, and after a brief confrontation, Weaver “threatened to get a gun and shoot up the house, car and everybody” before leaving, Haralson said.

The home invasion was not the first time in recent days that Weaver reportedly resorted to violent attacks against others.  He was involved in an aggravated battery case previously on Lester Road, where he reportedly struck a man in the head, knocked him out, and began kicking him, causing him to lose several teeth, Haralson said.

On Oct. 17, Weaver is believed to have attacked another man, also on Pine Street, where he hit the victim in the head with a gun and then fired a shot into the ground at the victim’s feet, he said.

Investigations into the incidents are continuing, and anyone with information is asked to contact Statesboro Police at 912-764-9911.
