A Flowery Branch man is accused of stabbing his neighbor in the abdomen with a kitchen knife, according to authorities.
Hall County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said the victim was stabbed once Saturday, Aug. 11, with a fixed-blade kitchen knife. The man underwent surgery at the hospital, and Ware was unsure if he had been discharged as of Monday afternoon.
Ware did not release the man’s name. The Times has requested the incident report.
Authorities said Gordy Ronald Orr, 54, was armed with a knife and “aggressively approached” his neighbor before causing him “serious injury.”
Orr appears in his mugshot to have been beaten. Ware said the victim “defended himself after being stabbed.”
No information was released by the sheriff’s office on a potential motive.
Ware said the incident took place in the 6900 block in Deaton Henry Road in South Hall.
Orr was charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. He was booked in to the Hall County Jail, where he is being held on a $1,300 bond for disorderly conduct.
No bond has been set on the aggravated assault charge.
Ware said the case is still under investigation.
