A 33-year-old Georgia man thought he’d found love online and moved to Kentucky to be with her, according to police.
But it wasn’t exactly true love for the Walton County man. Cornelius Jefferson’s new girlfriend wasn’t who she claimed to be online, police said. Jefferson allegedly assaulted the woman around 4:20 Tuesday morning, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department in Kentucky.
“The argument was allegedly because the male subject didn’t think she was like she was on the Internet,” the sheriff’s department posted on its Facebook page. “He allegedly choked her with both hands around the neck and threw food on her and left the scene on foot with two suitcases.”
Deputies located Jefferson walking nearby and he was arrested, according to police. He was charged with fourth-degree assault.
