TIFTON -- A Tifton man was jailed Monday after a domestic dispute which ended when he allegedly kidnapped and assaulted the mother of his infant Monday afternoon.
Woodrow Henderson, III, 22, of Tifton was allegedly trying to reconcile with the mother of his child, 20-year-old Aja Nichols, when he showed up at her residence around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon.
According to Senior Patrolman Ricky Day of the Tifton Police Department (TPD) after Nichols and her mother, Mamie Billington, repeatedly told Henderson to leave, he went around the back of the home and broke in through the back door.
"It appears then that Henderson, in his overzealousness, shoved Mrs. Billington to the ground while trying to get to Nichols. He then preceded to assault Nichols and drag her out of the house and across the parking lot to 13th Street," Day said.
According to a witness, Henderson then flagged a car down, and paid the driver two dollars to drive him to his uncle's house on Martin Luther King, Jr., Drive.
Once officers arrived at the home, Henderson walked out the back door -- hands in the air -- and was promptly arrested by TPD officers. He has been charged with burglary, kidnapping, battery (family violence), and simple battery and is currently being held in the Tift County Jail.
Nichols was taken to the TPD for questioning and her medical condition was unknown as of presstime.
