Calhoun Police Chief Garry Moss said Friday that three people were arrested in an assault that sent a woman to Gordon Hospital.

According to a press release, Calhoun police were dispatched Tuesday to Harkins Street in reference to a physical altercation. Officers arrived to find the victim bleeding profusely, stating she had been cut by a woman she knew and that the suspects had left the scene in a pink Cadillac en route to Atlanta. A statewide lookout was issued and the vehicle was stopped a short time later by Emerson Police Department.

Ashley Michole Brunson, Quanita Lashea Peterson and Coresha Malasia Henry, all of South Carolina, were taken into custody by CPD detectives and transported back to Gordon County. Brunson and Peterson were each charged with aggravated assault and possession of marijuana less than an ounce. Henry was charged with forgery, giving false information to police officer, possession of marijuana less than an ounce and fugitive from justice in South Carolina.

Additional arrest made in Cartersville burglaries

Cartersville Police Chief Thomas Culpepper said Friday that an additional suspect was arrested in connection with a series of burglaries and entering autos on Thursday.

According to a Friday press release, the fourth suspect is Christopher Vann, 30.

Culpepper said in the release, “This arrest, as well as those made yesterday, appear to have solved several burglaries and entering autos that have occurred not just yesterday, but also in recent months.”

The three additional suspects who were arrested on Thursday are Alex Stephen Durley, 25; Jeffrey Allan Lee, 25; and Santanna Courtney Poppell, 17. All four suspects are residents of Bartow County.

The investigation is continuing.

Woman’s gun moved during attempted burglary

When one woman came home Thursday night, her Smith and Wesson .38 was not where she left it.

According to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office incident report, when the woman returned to her home on Taylorsville-Macedonia Road at approximately 7 p.m., she saw the rear door of her residence was open. She later told deputies she was sure she closed and locked the door before leaving home earlier that day. When the woman walked into her residence, she realized the door to her garage was also open. At that point, she said, she went to her bedroom to get her handgun.

As she entered her bedroom, according to the report, the woman saw the nightstand drawer where she kept the gun was partially open. When she opened the drawer, the gun was not there.

Before the deputy arrived on scene, the woman said she found the gun behind two brooms on the back porch near the rear door.

The deputy did see the gun on the porch. He also took photographs of pry marks on the rear door and door frame, the door leading into the garage and a partially opened window in the front bedroom.
