Third person arrested in woman’s assault in Warner Robins

WARNER ROBINS — Another person was arrested Wednesday for accosting a woman with a high-powered BB gun last week outside a Warner Robins duplex apartment, police say.

Curtis Randle, 36, of Warner Robins, was charged with aggravated assault in the May 6 incident at Woodland Apartments at 314 Brady Drive, said Houston County sheriff’s Sgt. Ronnie Harlowe.

Randle and Quentavious Anderson, 22, of Warner Robins are accused of firing a high-powered BB gun at the woman. She was struck in back of the neck and arm. Anderson was previously charged with aggravated assault.

Adam Ward, 17, of Warner Robins, was accused of throwing an unknown object at the woman. He was previously charged with misdemeanor battery.

The woman had gone to the duplex about 10 p.m. to visit her son. He was not at home. She was accosted by four males on the porch, who started to taunt her and give her a hard time, according to the sheriff’s incident report. One of those was Randle, the boyfriend of the other person who lived at the duplex who also was not at home, Harlowe said.

The woman was told to leave because she was “on their turf” but she refused, the report said. At some point, she was struck in the back of the head with the blunt object and shot with the BB gun. The males fled. Harlowe described the incident as a “random act of violence.”

Randle and Anderson were being held Wednesday at the Houston County jail. Ward was freed on a $1,100 bond.
