Default Chattanooga coon pours boiling bleach on wimman and mane


Affidavit: Chattanooga man pours boiling bleach on woman and man


Chattanooga Police are charging a 37-year-old man after an affidavit says he poured boiling bleach to wake a man and woman, and attacked the man with a hammer.

Johnny Dewayne Dortch is charged with aggravated domestic assault for the incident, which police say happened on May 5th at a home on Wilson Street.

An affidavit obtained by NewsChannel 9 says the woman told police who arrived on the scene that Dortch woke her and another man up by pouring boiling bleach on both them, and attacking the man with a hammer.

The affidavit says Dortch had been living with the woman for the past few weeks, but had not been at home in the moments leading up to the incident. The woman told police he used her house key to get inside.

The affidavit says investigators noticed burns on the woman's face, neck, head, shoulders and back, and saw burns and abrasions on the man, too.

The man told investigators he didn't fight back, and instead told him, "let's just talk," according to the affidavit.

The man told police he was not interested in pressing charges, because "he understood why Dortch was angry."

An ambulance rushed the woman to the hospital with serious burns, and after doctors determined her throat was closing up due to burns on her neck, she was taken to the Vanderbilt Burn Center in Nashville. Right now, we do not know her condition.
