Man is charged with molestation
Authorities arrested an Evans man on Wednesday for allegedly masturbating in front of his niece and another girl last year.
A Grovetown woman called authorities April 25 after overhearing a conversation between the girls, ages 10 and 11. They said that Glenn Morgan Allison, 44, of Skeeter Lane, masturbated in front of them multiple times last summer and fall.
The girls told investigators that Allison would leave the door to a pool house open while the girls swam, and he would expose his genitalia and masturbate.
Authorities believe Allison intentionally masturbated in front of the girls, including once during a trip to a pond, where he was alone with them. They said he masturbated from across the pond where they could see him.
The girls also said that Allison put his hands down his pants and wiped them down the 11-year-old’s face and sucked on her toes.
Allison was charged with two counts of child molestation and was being held in the Columbia County Detention Center Thursday without bond, according to jail records.
Couple fight over hair in sink
Authorities arrested a Martinez man Tuesday after he choked and fought with his wife during a fight over hair in the sink.
Travis Dent, 24, of Ridge Crossing, was charged with simple battery, family violence.
Dent’s 22-year-old wife said that at about 2:15 p.m., they got into a fight because he dumped hair in the kitchen sink after she told him not to. She told Dent to leave and opened the door for him, but he pushed her arm.
The woman said she pushed Dent back, but he pushed her to a sofa and choked her. She hit Dent in the face, knocking off his glasses.
Dent went to the bedroom, started packing the woman’s clothes and said she’d be leaving. When his wife began packing his clothes and telling him to leave, Dent allegedly pushed her down, wrapped his arm around her neck and choked her.
The woman said she bit Dent’s arm because she couldn’t breathe. He also tried to put her in handcuffs.
The fight happened in front of their two children.
Dent was released from the Columbia County Detention Center Wednesday after posting $1,100 bond, according to jailers.
Woman reports naked neighbor
A Grovetown woman recently told deputies that her neighbor might have been naked in front of his window Monday evening.
The 32-year-old woman said Tuesday morning that on the previous evening she saw her male neighbor standing in front of his second-story window possibly naked.
She said that her neighbor finished cutting grass just after 7:30 p.m. She said he then stood at his back window for a few minutes and she was unsure if he was dressed.
Tire falls off woman’s car
A woman called deputies Monday when a tire fell off her car as she drove in Martinez.
The 29-year-old woman said she was driving her Chrysler PT Cruiser on Davis Road at about 1:15 p.m. when the front driver’s side tire fell off. The tire rolled across two lanes of traffic into a parking lot, where it hit a Dodge Caravan and a Chevrolet Avalanche.
The woman said she’d just picked her car up from an auto repair shop. The shop owner provided his insurance information.
