Man Attacks Mother and Son With Pitchfork, Piece of Asphalt

Son was struck in the head by the piece of asphalt.

A man looking for money he said was owed to him, attacked a mother and her son with a pitchfork and piece of asphalt after the son said he didn’t have the money. According to Athens Clarke County Police, the suspect threatened the mother and son with a pitchfork he found nearby, then threw it at them when they climbed inside the woman’s car. The pitchfork broke the windshield. The suspect then threw a large piece of asphalt through the windshield, striking the son in the head, which sent him to the hospital with a possible concussion.

The definition of disgruntled: An ex-employee is suspected to have shared his former boss’s phone number on a Craigslist sex ad.

The ad was removed, but the calls kept coming.

Hair burglars! A couple of men were seen on surveillance video smashing through the glass door of a beauty supply store and stealing hair extensions. The men, who had their shirts pulled over their heads, drove up in a car in front of the Beauty & Beyond in unincorporated Stone Mountain, pulled out a cinder block and tossed it through the glass. No value was placed on the stolen hair. Does that mean they're priceless?
