Lowndes County investigators are searching for a suspect in a weekend aggravated assault.
A woman was hospitalized after a man slashed her throat on Sand Road Saturday night, said Lowndes County Sheriff's Office investigator Tony Cooper.
Cooper said the victim and suspect, who had been dating, were sitting in a vehicle outside the suspect's residence when the assault occurred. The suspect attacked the victim when she told him she wanted to break up.
The victim needed stitches, but Cooper said she will recover.
The case is still under investigation by LCSO.
