SUSPECT ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT WITH A SAW

On 27 Dec 07 deputies were dispatched to 3570 Highland Ridge Road, Lowell, in response to an assault. Upon arrival, the deputies found the victim, Ronald Hoke, age 39, with several lacerations. Mr. Hoke stated Rodney Lockhart, age 44, inflicted the injuries upon him with a weapon later identified as a serrated blade saw with a handle. After being transported to Marietta Memorial Hospital, Mr. Hoke further explained that Mr. Lockhart awakened him by swinging the saw, struck him with it and ordered him to leave the residence. Hoke suffered severe cuts to his head, face, hands, and right arm which required stitches and staples.

Read his rights and questioned by detectives, Mr. Lockhart admitted striking the victim with the saw and stated he was upset that Mr. Hoke was sleeping in a bed and he had to sleep on a sofa. Mr. Lockhart said he struck the victim at least ten times and threw the saw in the front yard. As a result, Lockhart was arrested for felonious assault and transported to the Washington County Jail.
