Man charged in possible machete attack
Victim listed as parent
Edward Michael Davis

Bulloch County sheriff's deputies arrested a man Thursday on charges of aggravated assault after they responded to a reported domestic disturbance at an Old Register Way mobile home park.

Edward Michael Davis, 24, of Cedarwood Acres Mobile Home Park, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of simple battery (family violence) after Deputy Michael Wade Lewis arrived at the home around 11 p.m. Thursday and found in the home a male victim "bleeding from the ear," according to reports.

There were two victims listed - a man and a woman, both 40. Reports listed the relationship with the offender as "parent" but did not give details of any further injuries.

Lewis stated in reports that the man's injury was sustained when he was "possibly struck with a machete."

Davis was arrested after Lewis obtained "physical and testimonial evidence" of the attack, including "abusive language and threats," according to the report.

Davis was taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where he remained Monday with no bond, according to jail records.
