On Tuesday at 11:47 p.m., an officer responded to a call about a battery with injuries at a residence in the 1700 block of W. 27th Street. 

The caller said that a woman would not leave her property, but that the woman had left the area by the time the officer arrived.

The caller told 911 that the woman had thrown a brick at her. Once the officer arrived at the scene, the caller said no one had thrown a brick and no one had been injured.

Shortly after the officer left the residence, the woman who was initially accused of throwing a brick flagged down an officer in the 4500 block of Moncrief Road and said she had been battered, the police report said. 

The accused woman, who is identified as the victim in the police report, said she had been in the front yard of the home, talking to her boyfriend. She said 19-year-old Gionet Dennis exited the residence and started yelling for the victim to get off her property. 

The victim told the officer that she had begun yelling back, and the two women had gotten into a fight. 

The victim's boyfriend tried to stop the fight by standing between the women. When the victim tried to get into her car and flee the scene, Dennis threw a brick at the vehicle and the brick landed on the victim's toe, the police report said.

The victim was able to leave the area, police said.

According to the police report, the boyfriend told the officer he had been trying to get the victim to leave the residence because he said Dennis was mad and posting on Facebook

The police report said the victim's toe was severely injured and appeared disfigured. The officer noted the tip of her toe was no longer attached. 

The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department responded and treated the victim's injuries. 

Dennis was arrested and taken to a pretrial facility.

Barricades and fencing are in place around a city park in a small metro Atlanta town preparing for a rally Saturday by a Michigan-based neo-Nazi group.

Authorities in Newnan have spent nearly a month preparing for the rally since the National Socialist Movement applied for and received a permit from the city.

The Michigan-based "white civil rights organization" has been labeled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Somewhere between 50 and 100 members of the group will rally in the Greenville Street Park starting at 3 p.m. Authorities are urging residents to stay away from the area between through 5 p.m.

Demonstrators opposed to the neo-Nazis are also expected to gather, but the number is uncertain.

Members of the “No Nazi Newnan” are made up of local and out-of-town activists, which includes Atlanta Antifascists.

"I cannot allow myself to stand idly by," said counterprotester Samantha Binion. "I'm hoping as many people as possible feel empowered to come and join us."

More than 400 police officers and sheriff's deputies will be in and around the park during the rally to make sure there's no trouble. 

Many businesses have closed for the day out of fear that there will be clashes.

Somewhere between 50 and 100 members of the group will rally in the Greenville Street Park starting at 3 p.m. Authorities are urging residents to stay away from the area through 5 p.m.
