FAYETTE COUNTY (WOAY) – As many concerned, domestic violence incidents are up during the Stay at Home order.
Fayette County Sheriff Mike Fridley says while other crimes are less frequent, they’ve seen a rise in incidents across the area. High stress levels seem to be getting to the best of some people and previously violent homes can be driven to be even worse.
“It’s a bad situation for everyone,” said Sheriff Fridley. “The kids are home from school and everybody’s under stress…so it puts a lot of burden on people.”
The Women’s Resource Center is an essential business and is still open to those in need of its services.
