    A man suspected of attacking two others with a blunt object at a Metter nightclub Thursday might be in the Portal area.
    Warrants were issued for James Davis, 25, address unlisted, who reportedly attacked two victims at Club 46 , Metter Police Chief Dennis Nelson said.
    “The whereabouts of Mr. Davis is currently unknown, but police suspect he is still in the area,” Nelson said. “Davis has ties to Metter and Portal and also appears to be on active probation out of Bulloch County.”
    The attack took place Thursday night at the club on Metter-Portal Highway and Ga. 46. Davis was identified as the man who struck the victims with an unidentified blunt weapon during an altercation outside the building in the drive-through area, Nelson said.
    Davis also goes by the nicknames of “Pumpkin” and “Goatman.” 
    “The victims of the assault were treated at the hospital and have since been released. Davis should be considered as dangerous, and we will treat him that way,” Nelson said.
    Information from residents helped identify Davis, the police chief said. 
    “We greatly appreciate the numerous tips we received leading up to the identification of Davis, and we hope to have him in custody very soon,” Nelson said.
