An aggravated battery incident last week led to a manhunt on Memorial Day and an ongoing search for a weapon.

Around 8 p.m. on May 24, Randolph County Deputy Caleb Golding was dispatched to a residence in Phegley Resort (rural Modoc area) in reference to an aggravated battery.

A witness, as well as a victim, noted that a truck had pulled up at the residence, two male suspects got out and an altercation took place with two men who were there.
