Alleged Assault Lands London Man Behind Bars


Following a report of an injury assault, Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a south London residence located on Barbourville Road Thursday morning.

When officers arrived at the scene, they located a female victim who appeared to have a broken nose. The suspect had apparently fled into the residence when police arrived.

The male suspect, 28 year-old Nathan Davidson, was located by a K-9 unit. Police say Davidson was hiding in the attic, and was taken into custody following a struggle with deputies.

While being escorted to the police cruiser the suspect began swearing and attempting to pull away from authorities, before being placed in the police cruiser where he attempted to kick the windows out.

Davidson was lodged in the Laurel County Correctional Center where he was charged with 2nd Degree Assault, 2nd Degree Fleeing or Evading Police, 2nd Degree Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest.
