Lincoln County Sheriff's
Office Press Release

LINCOLNTON, N.C. - On Monday, March 4, 2019 the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office charged two women with assaulting an individual with a disability.  The charges came after an investigation into an incident that occurred on February 28, 2019 at a group home the man was living at near the 1700 block of Riverview Road in Lincolnton. 

Detectives say the women had problems getting the man to comply when getting off the group home’s van after returning from an activity.  Witnesses told detectives that is when the women struck him several times about his body with a metal broom handle.

According to detectives, the man had several welts and bruising about his body, as well as a large scrap to his knee after falling from being struck. He was taken to a nearby medical facility for treatment and released the same day.
