Vicksburg police say a man is facing assault and drug charges after he went to the police department to report a robbery.

Officers say Darius Wade went to the police department around 1 a.m. Friday and said he had been robbed.

An investigation into his complaint found that he was renting a room with a woman at the Relax Inn on Walnut Street.

While talking to Wade, police received a 911 call saying a female at the Relax Inn had been assaulted. Police and paramedics arrived and found the woman with lacerations to the head and a broken arm.

They believe she was hit with a toilet lid that was found on the bed. She was taken to River Region Hospital.

Wade was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and possession of cocaine. He was scheduled for a municipal court appearance Friday.
