Authorities investigating child neglect

A 4-year-old child may have been neglected at a Fort Mill daycare, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

The report states police on March 7 were asked by Department of Social Services to investigate an injury sustained by a 4-year-old boy while he was at a daycare center off Tom Hall Street in Fort Mill.

The allegations included reports that the boy had been injured and neglected for seven weeks, the report states. The report lists a 33-year-old worker as a suspect but no one has been charged with a crime.

No other details have been disclosed. Fort Mill Police are investigating.

Report: Teen caught with handgun

A 17-year-old boy was arrested by Tega Cay Police after they say he was caught with a handgun while driving illegally, according to a Tega Cay Police report.

The incident happened during a traffic stop in Tega Cay last month. Police say they stopped a Toyota Celica driving without a brake light. The driver was identified as 17-year-old Cristian Emmanuel Rodriguez of Charlotte. He was determined to be driving without a license and was arrested.

While preparing his vehicle to be towed, officers noticed someone had tampered with a fuse box inside the vehicle. Inside the box was a .38-caliber silver handgun. The driver told police he didn’t know who the gun belonged to. He was charged with driving without a license and unlawful possession of a handgun.

Police called after man spit on girlfriend

A Fort Mill man has been accused of domestic violence after he allegedly spit on his girlfriend, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

The report states the couple began arguing at their home on March 7. During the dispute, the 49-year-old suspect allegedly hit the woman in the head and spit on her. The woman texted a friend about the assault and the friend called police.

Police responded to the home and talked to the victim. She requested that no charges be filed, so that she could move out and end the relationship peacefully. Police interviewed the man and he denied the assault took place.

Police reports of all felonies and any major misdemeanors are compiled weekly from local reports. Charges do not necessarily result in a conviction, and people who are arrested are innocent until proven guilty.
