The injuries were discovered late last month after the boys, ages 6 and 3, were returned to their foster parents after a visit with their grandmother.
The older child reportedly told police he and his brother were ordered to line up with their tongues sticking out. Grandma then used a screen from the front of a heater to burn them.
After an investigation that spanned nearly a month, Shirley Hagerman was taken into custody on two felony counts of battery. Police say she bonded out the day after her arrest.
No word on the motive behind the alleged incident, but I’m going with crazy.…
The shooting occurred yesterday at around 1:30 p.m. inside a third grade classroom at Armin Jahr Elementary School. The gun was inside the boy’s backpack when it discharged, hitting Amina Kocer-Bowman in the abdomen.
Police are investigating how the boy got the gun and why he brought it to school in the first place, but feel the shooting was accidental. Bowman was in critical condition last night after surgery but her friends and family gave reporters a ‘thumbs up’ signal as they left the hospital later that night.
The boy who brought the gun was booked into juvenile detention for investigation of unlawful possession of a gun, bringing a dangerous weapon to school and third-degree assault. KIRO reported that the husband of the teacher who was in the classroom when the shooting happened, said the student who allegedly had the gun was recently transferred to the school and had been a real problem in the classroom.…
The 52-year-old victim reportedly told police that while arguing with her boyfriend Sunday morning, she was punched in the face several times and choked. Once she was down, the boyfriend, Samuel Cole, stomped on her left breast with enough force to damage the implant, causing serious injury.
In addition, police say Cole placed his hand over the woman’s nose and mouth in an attempt to suffocate her, releasing her only after she had passed out.
Cole then transported the woman to a local hospital for treatment, but threatened to knock the crap out of her again if she told medical personnel about the alleged assault.
Hospital staff contacted police and Cole was arrested on charges of felonious assault. He’s been ordered held on $50,000 bond.
No word on the woman’s condition, but her injuries have been described as “serious.”…
Phoenix, AZ – An Iraqi mother is back in jail without bond on charges of assault against her 19-year-old daughter for allegedly beating the girl with a shoe while she was tied to a bed. Yusra Farhan was recently asked in court to explain her actions.
“I swear I didn’t hit her – only slightly, like any parent would do to their children,” answered Farhan.
So, you can see that this is going to go well for her. But, let’s back up a bit, shall we…
Last November, police were first contacted about an alleged assault of Farhan’s daughter, 19-year-old Aiya Altameemi, at the hands of Farhan and another daughter. Officer James Holmes with the Phoenix Police Department said that, in that incident, Farhan and the girl’s 18-year-old sister “held this young lady down while mom took a hot spoon and burned her on the face and on the chest.” Holmes said the burning resulted in a scar on the teen’s chest. The reason…
“The family wanted her to participate in a pre-arranged marriage with a 38-year-old male,” said Officer Holmes.…
Surveillance video of the bizarre incident shows 32-year-old Verdon Lamont Taylor exiting his vehicle in the store parking lot and stripping down to his birthday suit. He is then seen walking into the store all nekkid-like and approaching the customer service counter. It was there, police say, that Taylor found the socks in question, slipped them onto his feet and continued on his way through the aisles.
Police quickly arrived on scene, and after making contact with Taylor, were forced to subdue him with a stun gun. Once they had him strapped to a gurney, Taylor allegedly spat on the face of one of the officers.
Taylor has since been arraigned on charges of indecent exposure, aggravated assault, simple assault, retail theft, receiving stolen property and disorderly conduct, and ordered held on $50,000 cash bail.
No word on whether mental illness, drugs or alcohol were involved.…
According to Lee deputies, 28-year-old Alicia Martin, left, and her pal Kathryn Rayannic, 24, had run out of cash while getting plastered at The Waterfront restaurant Wednesday, and were offering to bare their boobies for beer money.
“We had five guys that were like, ‘Please, leave us alone,'” said waiter Shaun Bassett. “They actually went up to tables who had their wives there.”
Sadly, the two women had no takers at all.
“Basically when they were turned down, they kind of got a little rowdy,” Bassett said.
After receiving numerous complaints about their bawdy behavior, restaurant staff attempted to remove the pathetic souses from the premises. It was then that Martin allegedly responded by shoving a female employee into a wall. The alleged assault continued after the party exited the building, with Martin punching the same female employee in the back of the head.…
Deltona, FL — Steven Saul, an apparent time-traveler from the golden age of Cro-Magnon man, can boast an extra-ordinarily low hairline, ears of which Dumbo would be jealous, a face that belongs in a bell-tower, and now, a charge of aggravated battery on a person older than 65. He cannot, however, claim to have the strength of even his 84 year-old grandmother, Lucille Cameron, with whom he shares a residence. In my estimation, the only thing this dude is missing is a “Winner” tattoo on his forehead.
It seems as if “Encino Man” Saul found himself short on money, and high on the urge to party. His alleged answer? Solicit some drug funds from his 84 year-old grandma, of course.
When she proved herself unwilling to cooperate, Mr. Saul reportedly got a tad physical with her wrinkly ass and, when she attempted to leave the residence they share, pushed her from behind, causing her to punch her car with her face, at least that’s the story the smudge-marks on the rear passenger-side window are telling.…
LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Here’s an example of why, no matter how much they paid me, I could never be a public school teacher. Video released yesterday shows the assistant principal at an Indiana high school being attacked by a student.
According to reports, a group of kids were goofing off in a hallways of Lafayette Jefferson High School when the school’s assistant principal was hit in the head by a flying bag of Cheetos.
When the assistant principal tried to get the boy responsible to come with him to the office, the teen resisted. When the assistant principal put his hand on the boy’s elbow, the teen flipped and grabbed the man by the throat before they both toppled to the ground.
The video begins shortly after the pair had fallen to the ground with the teen refusing to let go of the older man. When another teacher steps in to pull the student off the assistant principal, he has one hell of a time doing so.
Although nobody was seriously injured in the melee, aside from the teacher seen pulling the student off getting a cut on the nose, the student involved may be facing some serious consequences.…
Rucker’s girlfriend told police the cat was lethargic and unresponsive when she returned home from work Sunday afternoon. Also, in what I would have to assume was an argument over the state of the cat’s health, police say Rucker cornered the girlfriend in the bathroom and yelled at her and repeatedly poked her in the face for about 10 or 15 minutes.
When questioned about the cat, Rucker reportedly laughed as he told the arresting officer he placed a pillow over the critter’s face and punched it. He was trying to kill it, he said, because the damn thing caused him to fail a test.
Rucker admitted to cornering his girlfriend in the bathroom, telling police he wasn’t going to let her out until she listened to what he had to say. He also admitted to poking the woman in the face, but said that because he wasn’t actually beating her, he didn’t think it was a crime.…
CAMDENTON, MO — Police have charged a woman with first degree assault and armed criminal action after she slit her baby’s throat. This came months after she told a minister she was possessed by demons and was afraid she was going to hurt her daughter.
According to the probable cause statement, Tyler Tebrock called police to report that his mother, 39-year-old Bradie Simpson, and his 9-month-old sister were missing. He was concerned because he had found blood and a bloody knife in his mother’s bedroom.
Police searched the area and would find Simpson holding her blood-soaked baby in some woods nearby a few hours later. The infant was unresponsive, suffering from a neck wound and Simpson would not say a word to police.
They were both rushed to the hospital where the baby underwent emergency surgery and is expected to make a full recovery. Doctors say that had it not been for the cold weather and the quick responses of all involved, the little girl would have probably died.
So far no motive has been given, but police did find a plastic baggie and two spoons in her room, one of which tested positive for heroin.…
BETHANY, Okla. — Police say a Southern Nazarene University student was stabbed while feeding the homeless this past Saturday.
Zachary Smith, 21, and another student from the university bought a homeless man a pizza and were ministering to him before Smith was attacked. Reports say Smith placed the pizza on the ground near the man right before the man hit Smith in the head and stabbed him several times in the chest.
The students were able to drive to a doughnut shop and call 911. Smith was taken to the hospital, treated for his wounds and then released. His attacker, described as a white male in his 40s, has not been located.
SNU spokeswoman Sarah Roberts said the students were acting on their own and within the school’s motto of “Character, Culture, Christ Almighty This Asshole Is Trying To F*cking Kill Me”
“We are deeply concerned for the students that were involved in this traumatic experience and are most grateful that the injuries sustained were not more serious. The students involved were acting compassionately, as many of our students do on a daily basis, serving the community and meeting human needs as they encounter them,” she said in a statement.…
Helena, MT – Sherwin Shayegan, 28, admitted in court to jumping on two soccer players at a state high school tournament held in Helena in October and demanding piggyback rides.
“I made a mistake,” Shayegan told Helena Municipal Court Judge Bob Wood. “I was just trying to be funny and get a piggyback ride.”
Innocent fun? You decide…
Deputy Helena City Attorney Luke Berger pointed out at the hearing that Shayegan has already been, in fact, permanently banned from any high school sporting event in the state of Montana by the Montana High School Association. Add to this that Shayegan himself told police at the time of his arrest that he is also banned from school sporting events in the states of Washington and Oregon.
The piggyback attacks are not limited to sporting events, though. In September 2009, Shayegan was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault after reportedly telling a high-school athlete that he wanted to interview him for a term paper. Police said that, after the student noticed that Shayegan was behaving strangely and attempted to leave, Shayegan also jumped on that student’s back and demanded a piggy back ride.…
Erik Cain, 30, apparently got all kinds of slashy with his brother Wednesday evening after learning said brownie had been cut in half. Angered at the sight of the mutilated confection, Cain reportedly armed himself with three steak knives and went to work on his sibling, slashing the man on his forearm, wrist and shoulder.
The slashee, Gene Cain, told police he feared his brother was going to kill him, so he threw a television set at him in retaliation.
Cain was later arrested on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct. Interestingly enough, police say Cain was out on bail on charges he had slashed his girlfriend last month.
Since I can’t seem to find any information on the victim’s condition, I have to assume the wounds were somewhat superficial. If anything, the man learned a very important lesson – never lay a finger on an unstable slasher’s chocolate.…
Radnor, PA — A teacher at Presbyterian Children’s Village, a school that caters to children victims of violence, neglect and other serious conditions, was arrested last week after another school employee witnessed him sockin’ a female student in the face.
According to police, on January 23, 41-year-old Richard Little requested help from an on-duty supervisor at the center for help with a student who was throwing chalk at him. When the supervisor entered the classroom, he saw chalk on the floor and told Little to leave the room.
The supervisor told police Little then grabbed the girl, dragged her into the hallway and began punching her in the face, causing her to bleed. Other staff members intervened and Little was escorted out of the building.
Both Little and the student were transported to the hospital for treatment. The extent of the girl’s injuries are unknown, but police say Little’s hands and fingers had blood and teeth marks indicative of punching someone in face.
Little posted $100,000 bail after being arraigned on charges that included aggravated assault, simple assault and reckless endangerment.…
LANCASTER, SC — A man in South Carolina has been accused of dangling a 5-year-old boy over an aggressive, chained, pit bull after he got angry with the boy for getting dirt on his vehicle.
Police say that 22-year-old Michael Chavis Junior became angry with some neighborhood children who supposedly cursed at him and got dirt on the vehicle he had parked near the victim’s grandparent’s house. In response, Chavis grabbed a 5-year-old boy and held him over a chained pit bull.
The pit bull belonged to the boy’s grandparents and he’d often played with the dog, but in this particular case the dog became aggressive, biting at the boy and nipping his sweater. The dog is normally calm, but Capt. Scott Grant said the Chavis’ actions got the dog riled up.
“The stimulus given to that animal would even cause a more calm type dog to react,” said Capt. Scott Grant.
When police arrested Chavis on assault charges, they found he had another assault and battery charge already pending. He seems quite the guy, having been arrested 23 times for crimes including traffic violations, disorderly conduct, threatening the life of a public official, instigating a riot, resisting arrest, drug charges, discharging a firearm in the city, assault and battery with intent to kill and multiple assault and battery charges.…
St. Croix County, WI – Two sisters in Wisconsin have been charged after a man accused them of sexually assaulting him with pliers and forcing him to drink their urine. Does this sound odd to you? If not, it means that you are ideally suited to sort this one out.
Court documents say that an 18-year-old male was at a Wisconsin residence with Valerie M. Bartkey, 24, and Amanda L. Johnson, 17. Whatever fun they were having reportedly ended when the sisters – who had reportedly imbibed some weed – began punching and kicking him, and then – gasp – putting one of the man’s shoes in the toilet and soaking the other in a sink.
According to court records, the man said the sister’s funfest continued when they later brought him a cup of liquid claiming that was lemonade and ‘forced’ him to drink it. It reportedly turned out to be a cup of the sisters’ urine.
Police say that the man went on to say that the sisters then ‘forced him to undress,’ with the intent of Bartkey having sex with him.…
Greensboro, NC — Kevin Kennedy Gilchrest, 48, was apprehended in connection with the dumping of a nude woman’s body along a city street last Sunday. Police say that Gilchrest did not realize at the time that the woman was not dead.
The magistrate’s report describes the unidentified woman resisting Gilchrest’s attack Sunday. The arrest warrant said the attacker placed one hand on the woman’s throat while pushing her against a wall. The assailant then pushed her to the ground. The strangulation reportedly continued while the victim was raped.
The court records go on to say that – after the rape – the attacker severly beat her. He then reportedly assessed her lifelessness by raising and letting go of her arm. Court documents say that she allowed her arm to ‘flop down’ in a fashion indicating that she had died during the strangulation and beating. Gilchrest also reportedly held his finger under her nose to detect breathing – during which the victim was reported to have held her breath.
Court documents say that the attacker then placed the woman in his car and dumped her nude body on the side a city street early Sunday.…
Albuquerque, NM – U.S. Marshals tracked Moses Sparks, 26, to a trailer park near Mullins, South Carolina on Thursday. Sparks was wanted on charges of criminal sexual penetration, kidnapping and aggravated assault of his then girlfriend after allegedly breaking into her New Mexico home in September and beating and raping her.
Sparks reportedly tried to run last Thursday night as the arrest team approached. The team – made up of Marion County drug agents, Marion County Sheriff’s deputies and deputy US Marshals – apprehended him. Authorities entering the trailer reportedly found an active drug manufacturing operation – as well as the woman whom Sparks had allegedly raped in New Mexico.
Sparks – who had been on probation for kidnapping and aggravated battery at the time of the alleged rape – was given an additional charge of manufacturing a controlled substance. His girlfriend was charged with manufacturing a controlled substance and harboring a fugitive. An additional charge of being a complete idiot is presumably still pending.
