Man stabbed; he and woman face charges
Latoya Patrie Darien

    A man who was stabbed and cut during a fight Thursday was jailed after medical treatment, and the woman responsible remains behind bars without bond.
    Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said Andrea Levelle Young, 34, of Williams Road in Millen, suffered cuts to his head, shoulder and hand after a fight with Latoya Patrie Darien, 27, at her Miller Street Extension home Thursday.
    Deputies responded around 8:45 p.m. Thursday to a call about a domestic dispute involving a knife, he said.
    They found Young, bleeding from stab wounds, who said Darien attacked him with the knife.
    Investigators questioned him and others further and determined he was also at fault, Anderson said.
    “Investigators documented the scene and recovered the knife used in the assault. Based on the follow-up investigation, it was determined that both Young and Darien had committed criminal offenses during the altercation.”
    Bulloch County EMS took Young to East Georgia Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for injuries before being taken to the Bulloch County Jail. He was charged with simple battery and later posted bond.
    Darien was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a knife during the commission of a crime. She is being held without bond at the Bulloch County Jail.
