Man beaten in home invasion

QUITMAN COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - A Quitman County man is recovering in the hospital after a man broke into his home, beat him, and then took off.

The GBI hasn't released the name of the victim, but Quitman police caught 19-year-old Toddtavius Manning shortly after the attack and arrested him.

The victim's neighbor Samuel Williams said the break-in happened a few hours after the victim threw a birthday party.

"They robbed him and hit him in the head, it was very wrong, very wrong," said Williams.

Manning is charged with aggravated battery and is being held in the Brooks County Jail. More charges are expected as the investigation continues.
