A Hall County man is accused of holding a woman against her will and breaking several bones with brass knuckles, according to authorities.

Timothy Craig Edge, 42, was arrested and charged Friday with aggravated battery and kidnapping.

Edge is accused of holding a woman June 30 “against her will and (assaulting) her with brass knuckles,” Lt. Scott Ware wrote in a news release.

Ware said the victim suffered multiple broken ribs and a broken tailbone.

“After the assault happened, it’s my understanding that she was left there,” Ware said, when one of Edge’s relatives took the victim to Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

The victim has been released from the hospital, according to authorities. The person that took the victim to the hospital is not a suspect, Ware said.

Investigators sought warrants in the case and arrested Edge on Friday. He remains in the Hall County Jail.

Edge’s girlfriend Erica Dean, 37, of Hall County, was charged with hindering the apprehension of a fugitive, authorities said.

“She lied about him being there and was covering up for him, when he actually was at the residence,” Ware said.

Dean has posted bail from the Hall County Jail.

An attempt to reach Dean for comment was unsuccessful.
