Man arrested on assault charge


A Williamsburg man was recently arrested on a charge of assault that stemmed from an alleged February incident.

According to an affidavit filed with Hillsboro Municipal Court, the Highland County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a possible assault at a SR 134 residence at around 11 p.m. on Feb. 22.

Upon arrival, the deputy reportedly spoke with the alleged victim, a minor. The alleged victim reported that three males came into the residence without permission and that “two males assaulted him,” as stated in the affidavit.

The affidavit added that the minor was “familiar with all three of the suspects.”

The alleged victim also reported that he “(tried) to get out of harm’s way … (and) ran outside,” according to the affidavit. While outside, one of the suspects allegedly “hit him in the head with a broken shovel handle,” the affidavit stated.

One of the suspects was identified as Shane Cash, 32, according to the affidavit.

The deputy also reported that while investigating the alleged victim’s injuries he observed a red scratch on his shoulder and a red knot on his head. The affidavit added that the scratch was “about five inches,” and the knot was “about two inches in circumference.”

According to the affidavit, “the injuries were consistent with (the alleged victim’s) statement of being assaulted.”

Court records showed that a warrant was issued for Cash in March.

He was arrested Monday afternoon, according to jail records. Cash is scheduled to be arraigned in municipal court on Wednesday.
