Key Largo – A man who intervened in a domestic dispute Thursday night was cut on the face with a pocket knife. The suspect is still at large.
The victim, 38 year old James Galloway, told Deputy Darnell Durham he and his live-in girlfriend babysit her sister’s children while she works. On Thursday night at 11:15 p.m., the sister and her live-in boyfriend, 29 year old Leon Davis, came to their house on Cindy Place to pick up the kids. Galloway said the couple got into an argument in the driveway and when the sister came inside, she said she was afraid to drive home Davis because he was drunk and aggressive. Her sister told her she’d take her and her kids home.
Davis became more upset at this turn of events; he shoved his girlfriend against their truck. Galloway then intervened and the two men began to fight. Galloway walked away from the fight and, as he reached his house, he heard Davis yell. When he turned around, Davis cut him on the face with a pocket knife.
Davis fled the scene in his truck; the victim called the Sheriff’s Office. Galloway received stitches on his face. Deputies searched for Davis, but did not locate him. A warrant will be issued for his arrest.
