Covington man hospitalized after alleged beating, robbery by girlfriend's ex

CONYERS -- Police said a 39-year-old Covington man was seriously injured Sunday when he was pistol-whipped and robbed by his girlfriend's ex.

The victim was taken to an Atlanta area hospital by ambulance with serious injuries to his head after he was struck multiple times by the suspect, according to a report by the Conyers Police Department. The suspect also allegedly stole the victim's cell phone, jewelry valued at $450 and $400 in cash.

An armed robbery warrant has reportedly been issued for Norris Bernard Turner, 25, whose last known address was 2813 Williams Place, Snellville.

According to the incident report, Turner went to a residence at Millcrest Walk at about 4:15 p.m. Sunday apparently to drop off children he has with a woman who lives at the residence. Another woman at the residence told police that Turner dropped off the children, went back outside and then returned and began asking if anyone was in the bedroom. Turner allegedly forced open the locked door to the bedroom to find the victim sitting on the bed. The woman said the suspect began hitting the victim in the head with a handgun and checking his pockets for money.

The woman said the victim managed to get up and make his way out of the room, but that the suspect kicked him, causing him to fall down the stairs.

The officer observed large amounts of blood on the victim's neck, shoulder and head and blood stains on the sheets, pillow and carpet.

According to witnesses, Turner fled in a white older model Honda Accord a few minutes before police arrived.
