Man Recovering After Throat Cut In Altercation

Police say a Carrollton man is lucky to be alive, and he is recovering, after—they say his throat was cut by the father of his former-girlfriend.
58-year old David Odell Summerville of Villa Rica faces a charge of aggravated assault after allegedly using a box cutter in an attack on the 34-year old victim.
Captain Jeff Richards with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office says an argument between the suspect’s daughter and the victim ensued on Summerville’s front porch. The victim told police that during the argument, the front door “opened suddenly,” and Summerville eventually lunged toward him with something in his right hand.
Investigators say the victim received a “six-inch gaping laceration” to the left side of his throat and neck.
