The Georgia Bureau of Investigation continues to investigate the Monday morning aggravated assault that left two men wounded, but some information has been made available.

Spalding County Sheriff Darrell Dix, whose personnel initially responded to the High Falls Road scene, soon after requested the GBI conduct this investigation.

“Because Sheriff Dix felt as though because it involved an elected official that we needed to bring in the GBI. Solely for that purpose,” explained Capt. Dwayne Jones.

Jones also reported that there are no outstanding suspects in this incident.

“Please stress that we are not looking for any suspects related to this. The Sheriff says that we consider both these to be victims, so there was not a third party involved,” Jones said. “I’m not speaking for the GBI. This is their criminal investigation. The Sheriff has put this out already – there were two parties involved. There was not a third party.”

Asked if that means investigators have identified one of the injured men as the perpetrator, Jones said, “That’s something that the investigation with the GBI will have to determine – who was the primary aggressor or if they both were aggressors, I really don’t know, but we are not looking for anyone else related to the incident that occurred yesterday.”

Syntel Brown, age 33, a teacher and member of the Griffin-Spalding Board of Education, was critically injured in the incident. He sustained multiple stab and cut wounds and was transported to the Atlanta Medical Center Trauma Unit.

A second man, 24-year-old Devontae Perkins, also sustained multiple stab and cut wounds. He was transported to the emergency room of WellStar Spalding Regional Hospital.
