Brooks Road Incident Involves Knife

A male suspect wanting a little more than conversation with a young woman ended up going to jail after a struggle Friday afternoon. When deputies arrived near the area they found the female victim waiting in her car. She was covered with blood, her face was swollen, and her clothes were in disarray. Deputies, concerned for the victims well being, were told by the victim that the blood was not hers. Sheriff Keith Royal says the victim had fought with a male suspect, later identified as 54 year old Kevin Pratt.
