Hall authorities aid in capture during manhunt

Hall County authorities assisted in the search and capture Friday evening of a suspect who was considered armed and dangerous.

Alton Lee Davidson was taken into custody around 6:40 p.m. Friday. He was charged with two counts of kidnapping and aggravated assault in Banks County, according to authorities.

Banks County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Carissa McFaddin said the department was requested to Wilson Shoals Wildlife Management Area near Grant Mill Road and Yonah Homer Road in Alto.

McFaddin said the Department of Natural Resources was working in the area.

“They happened to see a man chasing a female,” she said. “They got out with the man and the female to check on their welfare, and as they did, the man ran from them.”

Preliminary investigation led the authorities to two women, and the lieutenant said there was a “violent domestic (situation) between him and the two women.”

Davidson had active warrants for aggravated assault on a police officer in Franklin County and false imprisonment in Habersham County, according to authorities.

Davidson was considered “armed and dangerous,” as he was believed to have a handgun, McFaddin said.

Authorities assisting in the search included: Hall and Habersham counties, Alto Police, the dog units from Lee Arrendale and DNR; and the Georgia State Patrol aviation unit.

The Banks County Sheriff’s Office set up a tight perimeter around Grant Mill Road and Yonah Homer Road.

“We had tracking dogs down there and were able to track him to where he was hiding in the woods,” McFaddin said.
