2 arrested in trailer park charged with aggravated assault

MOULTRIE — Two Moultrie men were arrested in connection with a Wednesday assault that sent a man beaten with a bat to the hospital.

Jose Aguilar, 38, was beaten by two men when a fight broke out at the mobile home park on Regency Village Drive in a midday incident that apparently involved alcohol, Moultrie Police Department Inv. Raul Leal said Thursday.

“Pretty much there was a fight and two offenders basically beat up another subject with a weapon that resembled a baseball bat,” he said.

Aguilar suffered multiple injuries but was released the same day the assault occurred at Lot 21 in the mobile home park, Leal said.

“They didn’t specify what the fight was about, but what we do know is they were intoxicated,” he said. “These two beat him up and the other one didn’t put up any resistance.”

Pedro Navarette, 47, and Ramiro Flores, 29, both of the same address where the assault took place, were each charged with aggravated assault.

In other arrests:

• Quentin Shawn Cooper, 28, 1957 Sylvester Hwy. Lot 28, was charged Wednesday with probation violation.

• Demetrius Damarian Walden, 32, 619 Third Ave. S.W., was charged Wednesday with probation violation.

• Hortencia Aguilar, 29, 1405 Murdock St., was charged Wednesday with no license and failure to stop at stop sign.

• Willissa Nicole Wilson, 28, 205 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, was charged Wednesday with probation violation and Oneki Ryshawn Huckaby, 17, 607 Lazy Oaks Lane, was charged Wednesday with possession of marijuana.

Police reported that an officer who investigated a truck parked at 10:56 p.m. at Knuck McCrary Park found Wilson and Huckaby in the vehicle.

A check revealed that Wilson had an active arrest warrant on a charge of violating probation, police said. The officer also found suspected marijuana in the front seat of the truck and Huckaby told police it belonged to him.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
