Owensboro police are investigating an assault that occurred Tuesday, where the victim says he was assaulted over allegations of missing marijuana.
OPD reports say officers were called to a home on Hughes Avenue Tuesday to respond to an assault. Reports say the victim told officers he and an acquaintance got into a disagreement, after the acquaintance accused the victim of stealing some marijuana.
The victim protested his innocence, OPD reports say. The victim told officers he even “got butt naked” in order to show his friend that he was not hiding any marijuana on his person, reports say. The victim told officers the acquaintance then picked up a belt and began beating the victim.
The victim did not require medical treatment.
