Information regarding a few significant cases being investigated:
Oct. 5: Troopers were dispatched to Marion regarding a domestic assault. A 13 year old girl had assaulted her wheel chair bound mother, striking her with several household items. A neighbor had witnessed the assault and called Meceola Dispatch Center, who dispatched the troopers. Upon arriving, the troopers interviewed the victim and witness outside the residence. The suspect juvenile had locked herself in the house, and troopers were forced to make entry through a window. Once inside, the juvenile would not comply with troopers and had to be physically restrained. She was lodged in a local youth detention facility pending further probate court action. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Troopers were dispatched to a Reed City residence regarding a child endangerment situation. The complainant called Meceola Dispatch after finding two young children (one of which was naked) playing in the dirt near an active and dangerous construction site. When the caller asked the children about their parents, they ran into a nearby open door. The caller attempted to wake a woman inside the residence, and called 911 when the woman would not wake. When troopers attempted to contact the occupants, no one would answer the door. Child Protective Services was summoned to the scene, and the occupants were eventually contacted. Investigation revealed there had been a party at the residence the previous night. Two subjects were cited for Minor In Possession of Alcohol. Child Protective Services is conducting further investigation regarding the child neglect issue. The complaint will be sent to the Osceola County Prosecutor for review.
