Sheriff's deputies are investigating two reports of home assaults over the weekend.
A Gregg Mill Road man told deputies that he was at home about 9:30 p.m. Sunday when he heard a noise at his front door.
"When he went to check the door, a man had opened the door and come into the house. He then struggled with the man and (he) did manage to get him out of the house," Deputy John Stills said in a report.
The suspect is described as being about 30 years old and having a stocky build and wearing a black hoodie.
"The victim was hit in his chest with a door knob during the struggle," the report said.
In another incident, a woman living on North Broyles Street told deputies a man came to the door and asked to use her cell phone.
"All she remembers is being knocked to the ground," a report said.
The victim had "deep cuts" in her forehead. Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services was called to the scene.
"The front door looked as if it was kicked in," the report said.
A neighbor saw a "short, stocky man running from the victim's front porch all the way to Whitehouse Road," the report said.
The suspect was reported as being in his early 20s and wearing blue jeans and a long-sleeve, dark shirt.
