Police are investigating the alleged assault.

21-year-old from DeKalb ‘jumped’ in downtown Athens, police say

A 21-year-old man from DeKalb County and his friends were attacked by a group of people in downtown Athens, according to a police report.

The victims told police they were “jumped” by a group of three or four men and three or four women early last Sunday, April 28.

The man from Lithonia suffered “multiple injuries to his head and he was bleeding,” the Athens-Clarke County Police Department incident report stated. He was taken to the hospital, and his current condition is unknown. His friends suffered minor injuries to their faces.

It’s unclear if he is a University of Georgia student.

Police are investigating, but “due to the lack of descriptions and information, the case has no leads at this time,” the report stated.

The alleged attack happened about 2:15 a.m. last Sunday at the corner of Pulaski and Clayton streets.

The victims said the fight was unprovoked on the street, but the two groups previously had a “disagreement” at one of the bars they were in.
