Cartersville police were called Saturday to a domestic dispute where a woman said she was threatened with a gun.

According to the report, the victim and her ex-boyfriend were involved in a dispute over allegations that she was seeing someone else.

The woman said the man walked to his vehicle and she followed. He then allegedly retrieved the handgun, pointed it at her face and demanded to know where the other man was.

The man then fled and an aggravated assault warrant was taken.

Man says he was "jumped" by group of men

Two men who said they left a baby shower to buy some "drinks" when a group of men jumped them.

According to the report, the two left the shower and walked to 501 N. Tennessee St. A Ford F150 and silver Mitsubishi Eclipse pulled into the parking lot and five black males jumped out of the vehicles with baseball bats and sticks and assaulted one of the men.

The man suffered head injuries and was taken to Cartersville Medical Center.

Several woods, grass fires reported

Bartow County Fire Department reported just before 9 p.m. Sunday that the department had worked several grass and woods fires in the 24 hours preceding.

A woods fire about 3:30 p.m. Sunday on East Main Street at Komatsu Drive burned about 3 acres before being extinguished.

BCFD and Cartersville Fire Department worked the blaze, shuttling in water after it was discovered the hydrant at Komatsu Drive was broken, according to CFD personnel.

The Georgia Forestry Commission was called in and plowed a break to contain the burn. Both departments said the cause remained under investigation.

BCFD said low humidity and dry conditions have been a factor in the number of fires reported in recent days.

Included in the blazes reported Sunday were ones in Camden Woods Subdivision, Trimble Hollow Road in Adairsville, Brent Circle in Euharlee and Rolling Hills Drive.
