Weekend investigations yield numerous arrests

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman reported a man sitting on her porch for more than an hour on Saturday and then breaking a window with his head when she would not let him in.

Desaria Ashworth, of the 900 block of Seventh Avenue Southeast, reported that the man came to her residence at about 3:45 and that she refused to let him in because he was drunk.

Ashworth told police that the man eventually realized she was not going to let him in so he broke the window and left in a gray car.

Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
