Kyle Eddward McCormick

A Homer man allegedly punched a woman in the mouth and attempted to stab her at a Hall County park, according to authorities.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputies investigated an assault report that happened between 9 and 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 18, at River Forks Park on Keith Bridge Road.

Kyle Eddward McCormick, 22, allegedly kept pulling a 21-year-old woman, with whom he was in a relationship, back into the public restroom, Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth wrote in a news release.

He also allegedly threatened to kill her and himself while he was holding a knife.

“He also attempted to stab the victim with the knife and struck the victim in her mouth with his fist, resulting in a busted lip,” Booth wrote in a news release.

The woman’s friend disarmed McCormick, and a group of them tried to drive McCormick to the hospital.

McCormick, however, jumped out of the car and ran.

Deputies arrested McCormick around 6:50 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20 on West Avenue at Comer Street.

He has been charged with aggravated assault, battery, false imprisonment and terroristic threats and acts. These charges are considered under the Family Violence Act.

McCormick is being held at the Hall County Jail on a $11,800 bond.

The case is still under investigation.
