A man called deputies Nov. 7 and reported he found out his 13-year-old daughter had been shown pictures of a 53-year-old man’s genitals.
The teen told her father she was out riding her bicycle with the man when he said he needed to stop because he was tired. After they stopped the man took out his phone and told the girl he wanted to show her a picture but she could not tell anyone.
The photo was the man’s privates.
The girl told her mother who told the teen’s father and law enforcement was contacted.
The case is still under investigation. Reported gas theft The owner of Rutledge Trucking in Andrews says he suspects an employee has been taking diesel fuel from the business and “selling it or something of that nature,” the report states.
The owner said he placed 139 gallons of fuel in a truck Nov. 4 and had to place 155 gallons in the truck two days later. He said based on the trips the driver took, “there is no possible way he could have used that much fuel,” the report states. The owner was told the procedure for presenting a case to a magistrate for possible prosecution. Student attacks
elementary principal The Pleasant Hill Elementary School resource officer was in the school office Nov. 7 when he heard Principal Teddy Graham call the front office asking that a parent be called ASAP.
The officer saw a student walking quickly towards the office with Graham walking behind him. The child entered the office and pushed past the deputy.
“I caught him by the arm to keep him from going further because he has a history of destroying property at the school,” the deputy noted.
The 7-year-old student was being escorted to the principal’s office when he allegedly kicked Graham in the thigh. The deputy then picked the kicking and screaming student up and carried him into Graham’s office.
Once in the office, the student started grabbing items off the shelves and was throwing them across the room. Graham told him to stop or his punishment might get worse, the report states.
The student then tore a gift in two that had been given to Graham by some teachers.
He then threatened to punch Graham in the face but backed down when Graham stood up.
The child then grabbed the deputy’s pen and threw it. He was warned he would be held on the floor until his mother arrived if he touched the deputy or Graham again. The student then calmed down and was later released to his mother. Attacked at the DC A 28-year-old inmate at the Georgetown County Detention Center was taken to the hospital after being attacked by a 22-year-old inmate Nov. 7.
A deputy met the victim in the emergency room. He said he was in his cell when the suspect walked in and said “didn’t I tell you to keep my name out of your mouth?”
The suspect then punched the man in the left eye.
The suspect said he was sitting in the day room when the alleged victim walked over and grabbed his genitals. He said he punched the man as a reflex.
The man was asked why he did not contact a guard to report being grabbed. He said he just wanted to go take a shower, so he did not think to do it.
Because of the extent of the victim’s injuries, the suspect was charged with aggravated assault. Truck stolen and burned A man from Kent Road met with a deputy Nov. 9 and said his son was in the hospital and someone stole his truck from his yard. He said some friends notified him the truck was found burned alongside Walker Road.
When the deputy arrived on the crime scene, he saw the interior had been burned but the exterior looked OK.
There are no suspects.
