Anniston police Capt. Allen George said two female victims, ages 25 and 26, told police a man they knew as an acquaintance tried to hit them with his Lincoln Town Car around 1:30 a.m. The women said the man drove over a curb and onto the lawn of their home on the 500 block of Glen Addie Avenue, George said . Neither woman was hurt during the incident, according to a police report.
George said police do not know why the suspect tried to hit the two women. Police were still investigating the incident this morning, the captain said.
The women live in the same apartment complex where a string of crimes took place Wednesday night, including an assault and shots fired into a vehicle. However, George said investigators don’t think this morning’s assault is related.
