LAGRANGE, Ga. (WTVM) - The LaGrange Police Department has made an arrest in connection to an aggravated assault.

Police responded to a Wright Street residence around 11:30 a.m. Sunday in reference to an unrelated incident. While on the scene, police say an officer made contact with a woman suffering from a severe cut on her hand.

When police questioned the woman about the cut, she said she was assaulted by another woman on Johnson Street earlier in the day. The victim told police the other woman attacked her with a knife, causing the injury to her hand.

After an investigation, Jaqueline McCauley was arrested and transported to the Troup County Sherriff’s Office. She faces one count of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a knife during the commission of certain crimes.
