A neighbor called 911 to report that she heard screams and looked out her window to see Williams being attacked by her grandson’s pit bull two doors down.
Several neighbors attempted to stop the attack, which reportedly lasted for 10 minutes. The pit bull did not stop mauling Williams until it was shot by a neighbor and ran behind the house where it is usually tied up.
Police arrived on the scene and ended up shooting the dog. Paramedics arrived shortly afterward, but it was too late for Williams. She would be pronounced dead shortly after being transported to South Pointe Hospital.
“All I know is there was blood everywhere,” one neighbor said. “He did a nasty job.”
Investigators are not sure what prompted the attack and have not filed charges against the dog’s owner at this time. One neighbor said they’ve rarely seen the dog and that it usually stays chained up behind her neighbor’s house.
“It was unbelievable. It felt unreal; it felt like you know, you live on a nice peaceful street,
you hear kids screaming and then you hear a woman being attacked by a dog. It’s unbelievable,” said Phyllis Quarles. “I can’t even imagine being attacked by a dog.”
Undercover sheriff’s deputies arrested 68-year-old Michael Crawford after they say he traveled to Arizona to have sex with a horse, as well as having some shirts soaked in horse piss.
Investigators in the Animal Crimes Investigations Unit where alerted and an undercover officer posed as a horse owner who was interested in Crawford’s proposition.
Through e-mail and phone-call conversations, Crawford admitted to having sex with animals since the ’70s and has traveled extensively to various cities locating horse owners who would grant him access to their animals.
Thinking he had found another one of these owners who would let him perform sex acts on a horse, Crawford purchased a non-refundable plane ticket to Phoenix.
He told the undercover officer he was looking forward to the visit and was bringing five shirts he wanted the horse to piss on. His plan was to mail the urine soaked shirts back to his home in Pennsylvania so he could wear them for arousal purpose, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.
“Perversion has reached a new level,” Arpaio said in a statement.
Crawford was met at the airport by undercover deputies and taken into custody. He told the deputies he didn’t understand why he was being arrested as he hadn’t committed any sex acts. Regardless, he was booked into Maricopa County Jail on a suspicion of bestiality charge — a Class 6 felony.
“I take this crime seriously; these animals are not meant to be sex toys for the perverted,” Arpaio said. “He would have gotten away with it if he’d picked the wrong county and the wrong sheriff.”
Arpaio went on to say this is the eighth time Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies have made a bestiality arrest in the past five years.
Police have arrested 22-year-old Christopher Muller after witnesses pulled him off a screaming 14-year-old girl on a dark trail, and held him until police arrived.
The three friends say they were parking their car at a Greenway Trail near Wilson’s Creek when they heard a girl screaming for help. Using their cell phones as flashlights, they followed her screams until they found Muller on top of her wearing only his boxers.
As evident by Muller’s mugshot, a small scuffle ensued as the friends pulled him off of the girl and held him at the scene until police arrived. Police say when they arrived, the girl was completely unresponsive from either drugs or extreme shock. She is currently i stable condition.
Muller was taken into custody and would tell police that he thought the girl was 15, and although she was “hot” he never tried raping her. He said he was half-naked because he’d just finished swimming. He said he was walking back to his car when some unknown assailant tackled him.
I’m not sure police bought Muller’s story, as he was arrested and charged with rape or attempted rape and attempted statutory rape. He is currently being held in the Greene County Jail on $250,000 bond.
A 13-year-old boy has been charged with three counts of first-degree rape after police say he sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl on a school bus.
The victim’s aunt, her legal guardian, had taken the girl to the doctor’s office after she came home from school bleeding, and finally told her aunt what the boy had been doing to her on the school bus. While exact dates of the assaults are not known, the resulting investigation determined the girl and the boy rode the bus together from Sept. 3, 2014 to Feb. 25, 2015.
In April, the information the sheriff’s department had gathered had them recommending the boy be charged with child rape in the first degree, child molestation in the first degree, and indecent liberties.
The boy was expelled from Chimacum Middle School and was released to his family pending his trial. If he’s convicted of all charges, the maximum sentence he is facing will be 2 years and a month in a juvenile facility.
“It’s important that he has an attorney to protect his rights,” Prosecuting Attorney Michael Haas said. “We also need to consider the rights of others, any other kids who could be subject to future violations by this person.”
The girl’s aunt says she is still “trying to wrap her head around” what happened to her niece. She wants to know how she was assaulted on a school bus, on multiple occasions, with no one noticing; not the other students, and not even the driver. She also wants to make sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else.
The Chimacum School District’s Director of Transportation said that while there is no written policy requiring older kids to sit apart from younger kids, it is generally done in practice. Ultimately, that decision is left up to the bus driver’s discretion
This particular bus driver was once given a letter of reprimand for not realizing a kindergarten student had fallen asleep and failed to get off the bus.
Beijing police are searching for the mother of a newborn baby girl who was apparently abandoned in a public toilet on Sunday.
State newspaper People’s Daily reports that witnesses called officers to the toilet in the Chinese capital’s Xicheng District after they heard crying. Police said the baby was inside the sewer of the squat toilet.
“The baby’s head was upside down and the whole body has fallen into the sewer. I could vaguely saw the baby’s feet from the side,” police officer Qian Feng told the newspaper.
At first police thought they would have to destroy the toilet to reach the baby, but then Qian reached into the sewer and carefully pulled her to safety.
Video stills from the harrowing incident capture the moment when the policeman rescued the girl. Police believe the newborn’s mother gave birth in the facility and then abandoned her.
The baby girl was taken to a Beijing hospital but did not appear to be injured.
An estimated 10,000 unwanted children are abandoned in China every year, Reuters reported in 2014. Although some are dropped off at “baby safety islands” and taken to orphanages, others are abandoned in public places such as toilets and train stations.
At one time, Chinese orphanages were mainly filled with unwanted girls, due to a cultural preference for boys under the country’s one-child policy. Now, officials said, most abandoned babies are sick or disabled.
Last year,the body of a newborn girl was found in a public toilet in North Point, Shanghai.
In May 2013, a newborn baby in the eastern province of Zhejiang survived after being dropped down a toilet by his mother. Rescuers were forced to saw away a section of pipe with the boy inside, according to Agence France-Presse.
