Police were called to a report of a fight Saturday night.
Officers were dispatched to the 600 block of North Hill Street around 9:00 PM Saturday night on the report of a fight in progress.
The owners of the home told police they had heard what sounded like men fighting in one of their side rooms. According to the report, the owners found two men fighting with a guest in the house, Matthew Andrews of Chapel Street.
Andrews reportedly told officers he had been working on the side door of the house, when two men came through the door and started punching him. Andrews also stated one of the men had a screwdriver, or some other sharp object, in his hand and was trying to stab him.
It was found that the houseguest, Andrews, had an active warrant for Violation of Probation, 3rd offense and was taken into custody.
Officers found one of the men, Mark Thornburg of Baileyton Road, on the steps at the side of the house, with blood on his face. EMS was called to see to Thornburg, who later said Andrews had stabbed him in the head.
No weapons were found with blood on them, in the vicinity of the fight, police reported.
The other suspect, identified as Randall Phillips, was located a short time later by officers.
Both Thornburg and Phillips were charged with Aggravated Burglary and were transported to Greeneville Community Hospital East to be checked over. Thornburg was cleared, but Phillips was transported to another hospital due to his injuries.
Thornburg was taken to the Greene County Jail, while Philips was assigned an active arrest warrant for Aggravated Burglary.
According to the police report, the altercation apparently occurred because someone had allegedly been hitting golf balls toward Thornburg’s home.
