A senior citizen and a juvenile girl were assaulted in their home early Tuesday morning when two people broke in.

When a Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to the scene on Howard Avenue, he saw blood from the end of the driveway going into the residence. According to the incident report, the victim said he was asleep in bed when he heard the juvenile yelling for help. The victim said he saw a white man on top of the juvenile, allegedly hitting her with a gun. A piece of rope was already around the suspect’s neck, according to the report, and the victim used it to pull the suspect away from the juvenile.

As the victim struggled with the suspect, another man allegedly began hitting the victim with a baseball bat. The victim said he hit one of the suspects with the gun, which he believed to be a pellet gun that looked like a rifle.

Both of the suspects reportedly fled the scene in a dark-colored SUV.

The deputy noted “multiple wounds and blood from multiple injuries” on the victim, who was pressing a towel to the wound on his head. The deputy also found blood on the living room floor, the kitchen floor, the victim’s bedroom floor, an upstairs loft area, the juvenile’s bedroom and the juvenile’s closet. Marijuana was found on a kitchen counter.

A neighbor said he used the victim’s vehicle earlier that night to take the juvenile to a Dollar General store. The neighbor said he forgot he had the keys and returned them to the juvenile. Approximately 15 minutes later, according to the report, when the juvenile knocked on the neighbor’s door she was covered in blood.

The scene was later turned over to an investigator.

Man arrested for pandering in jail parking lot

After asking women to take nude pictures of him, one man ended up getting a mugshot Wednesday night.

According to the BCSO incident report, a witness approached the visitation window at the Bartow County Jail and said a man, later identified as Richard Davis, told her he would pay her to take nude photos of him. Two other women also said Davis approached them and offered to pay them if they took nude photos of him.

The witness said she was waiting for the 10 p.m. visit when Davis approached her and asked if she was religious. When the witness said she was not, Davis allegedly asked if she would be willing to take nude photos of him in exchange for $75.

The witness said she cursed Davis out and went inside to report the incident.

Three deputies went out to the parking lot and found Davis parked in a car. When asked why he was at the jail, Davis said “it was a personal issue and he would rather not say.” A deputy confronted Davis about him asking women to take nude photos of him. Davis admitted to asking the women to take nude photos of him, adding that he did not mean “any disrespect,” according to the report.

When asked why he was at the jail, Davis said he had talked to someone who recommended the location because there were people who needed money. The deputy noted Davis had a pornographic magazine and a bottle of wine in the car’s front seat. Davis reportedly apologized and said he did not know his actions were wrong and he did not mean to disrespect anyone.

Davis was arrested and charged with pandering and loitering.
