Police are investigating a report by the mother of a 15-year-old girl who she said was sexually assaulted. No other details are being released at this time.
While on patrol at 3:04 a.m. Saturday, officers saw a man come from a suspected drug house on McKinnon Avenue and believed he had an outstanding warrant. After stopping the vehicle he was driving, officers were speaking to the driver when another officer noticed the back seat passenger had a gun. All occupants were ordered out of the car with their hands up, but the back seat passenger, later identified as Graylen L. Thornton, 26, Globe Street, reportedly kept his hands at his waistline and began arguing with officers. As Thornton was told to lie on the ground, a gun fell onto the ground, according to reports, which said he then advised officers he holds a concealed weapon permit and the gun was on the seat when they stopped the vehicle, so he attempted to hide it by sticking it into his pants. He was charged with improper handling of a firearm.
DaNeil U. Prentice, 21, Wedgewood Street, was charged Sunday afternoon with obstructing official business after officers were called twice about him causing problems outside a residence on Mapletree Street. According to reports, officers responded earlier in the shift then, on the second call, found Prentice in the middle of the street, in a shouting match with two men. Officers said they attempted to calm him down and at one point, Prentice jerked away from an officer, advising him not to "put your (expletive) hands on me." He reportedly continued the disruptive behavior and was arrested.
