ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Officers of the Albany Police Department (APD) were called out to a gas station in the 400 block of South Slappey Boulevard just before midnight Saturday, for what is listed as a case of domestic violence, according to an incident report.

UPDATE: On Sept. 30, the Albany Police Department said aggravated assault warrants have been issued against Homer Holiday, 30. If you have any information on this case, call the investigations division of the Albany Police Department.

A woman told police that her ex-boyfriend sprayed her with gasoline from the store’s pump, and held a lit cigarette against her clothing, in an attempt to ignite the fuel.

APD’s report states that the woman told officers that her former partner, Homer Holiday, was angry with her over a paternity test done a few days earlier that casts doubt on her unborn child’s paternity.

The report states that the officers smelled gas on her clothing, saw that it was wet, and saw “black, burnt markings on different spots of (her) shirt.”

Police said after repeatedly pressing the cigarette against her clothes, the gas did not ignite. The suspect then left the scene, according to APD.
