A Winder woman accused a man of poking her in the eye during a confrontation on Capital Avenue.
Police were dispatched to the area after a caller advised a large group of people were fighting in the street.
Upon arrival, the officer met with a woman who said another man was trying to fight with her brother and had poked her in the eye twice.
The officer did not see any sign of injury in or around the woman’s eye.
According to the woman’s brother, he and another man were arguing when his sister walked outside. The brother said the other man poked his sister in the eye three times.
The other man denied poking the sister in the eye, but admitted he had been arguing with the brother. The man said he never touched the sister and several witnesses confirmed his story. Several other witnesses refused to comment on the incident.
No arrests were made “due to the lack of reliable witnesses and physical evidence,” but the man was cited for disorderly conduct.
