CUMMING – A 24-year-old man from Cumming sustained what were described as severe injuries to the head after his roommate hit him with a glass bottle during a fight early Tuesday morning.

The two men reportedly were “actively fighting” when deputies from the Cumming Police Department and Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene of the apartment complex on Bald Ridge Road about 2:15 a.m. Jan. 3, according to Deputy Chief Aletha Barrett, a spokeswoman for the city agency.

The victim was transported to an area hospital and was in stable condition as of Wednesday afternoon, Barrett said.

Odilio Lopez-Jimenez, 39 of Cumming, was arrested for aggravated assault family violence and remained, as of Wednesday, in the Forsyth County Jail without bond.

Barrett said the two are not related but do live in the same apartment and work together.

She said both men were intoxicated at the time and had just gotten off work from Kani House in Cumming.

More than one teenaged juvenile, who also live at the residence, reportedly witnessed the incident.
