Overnight Stabbing Leaves Man Seriously Injured, 70-Year Old Female Behind Bars

Circumstances Behind the Stabbing are Unclear

Just after 11 PM on the night of August, 24th 2022 Dispatched notified Newnan Police Department units to respond to the area of MLK Jr. Drive and Ball St. in Newnan.

Dispatch informed units that there had been a stabbing, as units rushed to the scene Coweta County Fire Department units were dispatched for an unknown problem, person down call at the same location.

Units arriving on the scene quickly attended to the victim, a male with a life-threatening stab wound to the torso.

Life flight was quickly requested and had originally planned to land at the Central Education Center, however, it was decided by CCFD personnel that the victim would be brought to the helipad at Piedmont Newnan Hospital.

The victim was quickly taken to the awaiting helicopter and flown to a trauma center in Atlanta.

The Suspect, Ashaba Hassan Ali, Arrested at The Scene

The suspect, Ashaba Hassan Ali, a 70-year-old black female from Newnan was arrested at the scene.

She was taken to the Coweta County Jail and is currently being held without bond on the following charges:

Assault Aggravated with Knife
Criminal Trespass

It’s unknown what, if any, connection there may be between the elderly female and the victim, however, the addition of the Criminal Trespass charge would denote that something had caused her to be removed from the property the incident occurred at some time in the past.

A booking photo of the suspect is not yet available, however, we were able to find the following publicly available profile picture on Mrs. Ali’s Facebook account.

We will update with more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE: 10:45AM we’ve received the following booking photo for Mrs. Ali.
