THOMASVILLE, Ga., (WTXL) -- A Thomasville woman claims she was assaulted and robbed walking home from her birthday party.

Police say the victim told them she was robbed and assaulted the night before in the area of Vine and Dawson Streets.

According to the police report, the woman says she was at a party on Kelly Street.  She told them, after the party, she walked back to her home in the 100 block of Cherry Street. 

She says a black man and a black woman jumped out of a white Chevrolet Cavalier and assaulted her on the way home.

According to the report, the victim told police, the man held her hands behind her back while the female cut her with a knife.  The victim says she tried to fight back but couldn’t get them off of her.  She also says the female was trying to cut her neck, but she was able to move back and forth to avoid any cuts. 

According to the report, the suspects then took her money, pushed her to the ground, kicked her, and left in their car.

The victim told police she did not have a phone to call for help, so she knocked on two other doors, but they refused to help or call the police.  The next day, she called police after a neighbor said that they knew who the suspects were.

The suspects were identified as Katherine Bentley, and Otis Jones Jr.

During a traffic stop later that day, two officers pulled Bentley over on Remington Avenue and Broad Street.

The report says, Bentley had warrants for aggravated assault and robbery in Thomasville.

Bentley and Jones were arrested for assault and robbery.
