Loganville Police Department personnel responded to a report of a domestic violence situation involving a person with a knife at 230 Randy Road, City of Loganville spokesman Robbie Schwartz said.
“Initial reports were that one person had been stabbed and that pepper spray had also been used at the scene. Officers arrived to find a large group of people and, as they were unable to determine immediately who was involved, detained everyone. LPD personnel were able to determine that Amber Joy Swain, 22, of Loganville, was reportedly wielding a knife and at some point, pepper spray was used on her, though it was determined this was done in self-defense,” Schwartz said. “A large-scale altercation ensued as people attempted to restrain Swain. LPD officers were able to determine that no one, in fact, had been stabbed and that Swain had only suffered minor cuts in addition to being pepper-sprayed.”
Schwartz said Loganville Fire Department personnel also responded to the scene to treat multiple persons, including a small child for exposure to pepper spray. Swain, 22, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of cruelty to children. Also charged was Wilton James Breax, 42, who was charged with one count of aggravated assault stemming from an incident during the large-scale altercation.
A large contingent of Loganville Police vehicles was seen heading down Highway 78 in the city on Thursday afternoon, March 12, 2020. Officials have confirmed that officers from Loganville Police Department are currently working a domestic situation on Randy Road. This is currently an active investigation and no further details are available at this time.
