Man Faces Several Assault Charges, Including Attempted Murder

Attempted murder charges were filed Thursday against a 41-year-old local man in the severe beating of a man back on October 9.

Henry "Sonny" Paul, 54, was unconscious for several days in a local hospital after he was found beaten in an alley in the Glenwood area of town.

Panama City Police charged Victor Scott with attempted murder in the beating.

Scott was already in jail when he was charged. He was arrested last Thursday on aggravated assault, aggravated battery and attempted kidnapping. These charges involved a 41-year-old local woman Melody Porter.

Scott remains in the Bay County jail this evening
