Gordon County Sheriff’s Office-
At about 11:30 p.m. last night (January 31) deputy sheriffs were dispatched to a private residence on Singletree Drive in response to a 911 report of domestic violence.
Upon arrival, deputies met with a woman who reported she’d been assaulted and held against her will by her husband, subsequently identified as one Christopher D. Thurman, age 33, of 226 Singletree Drive, Calhoun.
The victim told investigating officers that the events had spanned several hours during the day before she was able to call 911. Thurman fled the scene before the arrival of the deputies, and could not be located in the immediate area of the home.
The woman and her children were removed to a safe haven and the responding officers gathered evidence before obtaining warrants for Thurman’s arrest. At about 3 p.m. today, Thurman was found hiding in a mini-bus near Singletree Drive.
He was taken into custody without incident and lodged in the county jail, charged with Battery, False Imprisonment, and Cruelty to Children, pending bond proceedings.
