Assault this Morning by Unknown Person

 The Laurens County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched on an assault case at 12:10 this morning. A Waterloo woman said she was walking along Pine Ridge Road near Neely Ferry Road when she was hit in the head from behind and fell to the ground. She indicated she was temporarily unconscious from the assault, and that she did not see who hit her. After coming to, she called her roommate to come pick her up and came to the Laurens county Hospital Emergency Department to be seen. Deputy Mike Seigler notes the woman had a visible gash over her right eye. There didn’t seem to be sufficient information to further investigate the alleged assault at this time.
