Four Arrested After Molestation – Canton-Sixes Patch
Four young men from Canton were arrested last week on various charges in connection with the molestation of a child.
According to a Canton Police Department incident report from May 27, deputies from the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office alerted local authorities of a possible child molestation that occurred at the Hampton Inn hotel on Transit Avenue.
The report, which is redacted, is scant on details. The age of the victim is not listed.
Puppy Found in Park Trash up for Adoption – Stone Mountain-Redan Patch
Peyton, the shepherd mix pup, who is just barely four months old, was discovered last month in a not-very-heavily traveled part of an Atlanta green-space. He had been dumped into a park trash can by someone and left there.
A cat trapper (community volunteer who traps feral cats for TNR programs) was scouting the area and heard odd noises coming from an oil-drum trash barrel just off the beaten path.
What he found when he checked out the source of the unusual sounds was a young dog covered in trash, tar and grime.
LifeLine Animal Project stepped in and immediately took the puppy and cleaned him up. He was put in a foster home until he could get all his vaccinations and was old enough to keep in their no-kill Dog House in Avondale Estates.
