MARIETTA – A female Marietta Police officer is back at work after being assaulted by an unknown suspect last week during an attempted arrest.

Officer David Baldwin with Marietta Police said officers are looking for Andre Richard Hall, described as a 27-year-old black male, approximately 6-feet tall, 185 pounds with dreadlocks, who is wanted for reportedly assaulting an officer, felony obstruction charges and a probation violation in north Cobb.

Descriptions also indicate that Hall has a “distinctive” dark-colored birthmark on his left cheek and that he has ties to several locations in the Cobb County area so officers believe he is still in the area.

“There was an officer (whose name is not being released) doing a foot patrol at the Marquis Place apartments on Franklin Road … when she encountered three subjects about their activities, one of them (Hall) came back wanted,” he said.

Baldwin said that while attempting to arrest Hall on an outstanding warrant for a probation violation in Acworth last Thursday night, he punched the officer numerous times in the head, then ran from the scene and could not be located.

“The officer is OK,” he added. “She did not sustain any lasting injuries from (the attack) and she’s already returned to work.”

The Marietta Police officer has issued an additional arrest warrant for Hall, charging him with felony obstruction, and anyone with information about Hall’s whereabouts is asked to call the Marietta Police Department at (770) 794-5300, or the Marietta Police Department Tip Line at (770) 794-6990.
