MOULTRIE -- Physical asssults, alleged sexual misconduct with minors involved and numerous reports of thefts kept Moultrie and Colquitt County lawmen busy over the holiday weekend.
One Moultrie resident reported being injured after a male acquaintance threw knives at him Saturday.
Anselmo Hernandez reported the incident to police after it took place at a residence on Magnolia Avenue between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday.
Police reports said several people were at the residence, and Hernandez stated he was trying to eat. The male acquaintance picked up several knives and threw them at Hernandez, police reports stated.
The knives struck Hernandez in the right lower back, and reports said he had four or five small puncture wounds. It was unknown if he was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
The stabbing was initially reported as happening at 11 p.m. Friday, but reports said the time was changed to Saturday morning. Hernandez was intoxicated at the time when police obtained his statement through an interpreter, police reports stated.
Hernandez was asked to complete a report with a Colquitt County sheriff's investigator Monday after he had sobered up, reports said.
In other investigations, three Moultrie residents reported their 15-year-old female relatives were molested by older men. Two of the residents complained of sexual activity between the girls and older men, and the last person complained her 15-year-old relative was inappropriately touched.
One woman reported Saturday her 15 year-old granddaughter had been seeing a 20 year-old man for several months, and reports said the two have been involved in sexual activity together. The woman said he had notified DFCS of the possible sexual activity between the two.
Another woman reported Saturday her 15-year-old daughter has a 19-year-old boyfriend, and reports said they had been involved in sexual activity despite the mother forbidding her daughter from seeing the 19-year-old. The mother has no evidence that the two continue to see each other, but her daughter had previously admitted to sexual activity with the 19 year-old, she told police.
A third woman reported her 15 year-old daughter had been inappropriately touched by a 35-year-old male acquaintance on several occasions. She stated she knows the man through their church, and he would take the 15-year-old several places, such as football games or shopping.
Police reports said the 35-year-old man has on at least three occasions inappropriately touched her in private areas, despite her expressing her displeasure to him.
