The Cumming Police Department has arrested a local resident after he allegedly attacked and choked a courtesy officer at a local hotel last Thursday.

According to an incident report by the Cumming Police Department, Enes Hamidovic, 38, of Cumming was taken into custody on Thursday night after officers responded to the In Town Suites in Cumming and found one victim with injuries to his neck.

The report states that the victim immediately identified Hamidovic as his attacker, saying that the altercation began after Hamidovic “lunged at him and grabbed him by the throat” when he refused to let the suspect into a room that he was not registered to.

When confronted by the officers, Hamidovic allegedly acted aggressively, attempting to stare an officer down and refusing orders to keep his hands out of his pockets. The report states that after confronting Hamidovic, officers also identified him from an event earlier in the night when he allegedly slapped a cashier at RaceTrac and called her a “bitch” while she was offering him assistance.

As officers took Hamidovic into custody Thursday night, the report states that he fought with them to the ground, attempting to “bite and headbutt” an officer’s knee, “leaving visible injuries.” 

Hamidovic has been charged with aggravated assault, battery and obstruction of law enforcement officers.

He is being held in the Forsyth County Jail under a bond of $17,950.
