The Messenger. 06.27.08 A Union City man had to receive treatment at the local emergency room after being assaulted by an unknown subject. Amber Nicole Decker and Justin Ryan Thomas told Union City police they were sitting on their porch at about 12:30 this morning when four young white men were walking down the street and allegedly made a demeaning comment directed at Ms. Decker. Thomas reportedly told the men to “go on” when one of the subjects came up the sidewalk and repeated the statement. When Thomas stepped to the sidewalk, one of the other subjects allegedly started throwing punches, hitting Thomas in the head. He received two lacerations, which were caused by a blunt object. One was a deep cut over his left eye, while the other was between the eyes.
