(London, KY) - On Saturday August 16, 2008 at approximately 5:15 AM the Kentucky State Police Post 11 and the Laurel County Sheriff's Office responded to an Assault Complaint on Douglas Boulevard, in southern Laurel County KY.

The Laurel County 911 Center received the complaint from the victim, Marietta Smith, 38, and her friend, Myrtle Smith, 24, both of London but the exact location of the assault was unknown due to their lack of co-operation.

The victim was transported to Saint Joseph of London and transferred to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, for treatment, with non-life threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made at this time in reference to the Assault.

KSP Detective Millard Root is continuing the investigation, as lead investigator, and was assisted by officers of the Kentucky State Police, the Laurel County Sheriff's Office and the London City Police.
