Act Of Kindness Turns Into An Assault

A Lyerly man was assaulted while trying to help a local motorist Tuesday, according to Summerville Police reports.

Brandon Bartlett, 30, stopped to offer assistance to a motorist.

“Mr. Bartlett stated that he saw a white Maxima with an Alabama tag off into the grass with the flashers on and he pulled behind them to see if they needed any help. Mr. Bartlett stated he got out of his vehicle and was walking toward the white Maxima when he heard a voice behind him. Mr. Barlett stated when he turned around someone had struck him in the head and he passed out,” Officer Matt Wilson reported.

Bartlett refused medical treatment.

When Barlett awoke, he discovered that someone stole his wallet with $1,000 inside it. The wallet also contained a debit card, two credit cards and other personal items.

    You should ask permission before posting somones full name. Also he didnt hear a voice, he heard someone walking up behind him. He also never turned around. He was struck from behind.

      Reporters dont need permission to publish newsworthy articles. Its likely they got details straight off the police reports, which are public knowledge by the way.

        Just delete my comment if yall are too afraid to post unbiased replies and comments. Why even offer a comment section if you are going to be so choosy about who can and cant comment. The Summerville news isone of the most biased forms of media ive ever seen. Makes me wonder if yall are owned by the Trump organization.

      Police reports are public record. They are reporting news, they don’t have to ask permission.
