Laurel County Sheriff John Root says deputies were called out to a home off Cole Road where a disabled woman had been assaulted. Officers found that a family member, 51 year old Billy Robinson, had hit the woman several times with his fists and had taken her cane and beat her with it. Deputies say she had extensive marks and bruising. Robinson was found hiding in a closet and after a short scuffle with police was taken into custody. Robinson was charged with assault and resisting arrest. He was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
