An Anniston man was charged Friday after he allegedly assaulted a man in April until the victim lost consciousness.

Demarius Devon Whorton, 20, was charged by Anniston police with second-degree assault.

Burnett was arrested April 26 and also charged with second-degree assault.

Wharton and Burnett remained Monday in the Calhoun County Jail. Wharton’s bond was set at $7,500, and Burnett’s bond on a previous charge was revoked. Whorton is scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. May 20.

Second-degree assault is a Class C felony, which can result in a 10-year-prison sentence and up to $15,000 in fines, according to state law.
