Sheriff's Beat - Deputies take child abuse report

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies this week took a report of possible child abuse.

A man at a local hospital told deputies his children had been with their mother, who shares custody of the children with him. When he went to pick up the children, they were crying and upset, and one told him she’d been pushed by a man and that he also held her head under water at the river and threatened to do the same to the other child. Deputies said one child also had bruising and cuts in various places on the body.

In other matters, deputies took a report Wednesday after a 15-year-old boy said a woman threw a 32-ounce soft drink on him. The boy said he’d gone to visit a girl at an apartment, and when he was knocking on the door, a woman pulled up in a vehicle and began to yell at him. He said he “flipped off” the woman, and she threw her drink on him.

Ashley Oosahwe reported theft from a vehicle Tuesday.

Juan Halguin told deputies this week that a thief made off with four fishing poles, a concrete mixer and a tiller.

Fred Smith this week said vandals destroyed a mailbox.

Paula Smith spoke to deputies Tuesday about medication being stolen from her house.

Deputies spoke to a woman Tuesday about a possible sexual assault.
