Police arrested a man Saturday after finding a badly beaten woman in a bathtub in his Lanier Place apartment. She had been held against her will and not allowed to leave, police said.
Ted Ashley Vickery, 38, is being held with no bond in the Bulloch County Jail, charged with aggravated assault/family violence, false imprisonment, and obstructing an emergency phone call, said Statesboro Police Capt. Jared Akins.
Officers were dispatched to Vickery’s Lanier Place apartment off Lanier Drive around 5:25 p.m. Saturday, in response to a reported physical domestic dispute,
“As officers approached the specific apartment they made contact with (Vickery), who told officers that the female involved in the dispute had left,” Akins said. “However, neighbors contradicted this story.”
Officers searched the apartment and found the woman lying in the bathtub, visibly injured and having allegedly “been physically battered by Vickery with a wooden object and prevented from leaving the apartment,” he said.
Anyone with further information about the incident is asked to contact Corporal Nathan Janney at 912-764-9911.
