Dalton Police Department Investigating Report Of Man Harassing Girl At Kroger

Friday, May 17, 2019

The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a man that investigators say harassed a teenage girl while she was shopping with a family member. The incident was recorded by store surveillance.

The incident happened Wednesday evening at the Kroger on West Walnut Avenue. While a 17-year-old girl was shopping with her grandmother in one of the store’s aisles a man ran up to her suddenly and lunged, as if to hand her a dollar bill. The girl tried at first to ignore him, but then later reached out to take the bill in hopes of getting the man to leave her alone. The man then snatched the bill away and continued to stand by her. The girl said she was frightened and told the man she would call police if he didn’t leave. The man appeared to be smiling. The man then left, and witnesses said he left the store riding a bicycle in the direction of Dug Gap Road.

The man is described as an Hispanic male, wearing camouflage pants and a short sleeved white polo style shirt. He has short dark hair and a mustache.

If anyone knows this man, they are asked to contact Detective Charles Williams at 706 278-9085, ext. 9280.

Warren Mackey: Why I Will Be Voting For County Commissioner Discretionary Spending - And Response

Because I am taking the lead on the County Commission in reinstating discretionary money, I take it that a Commissioner’s comments in the Chattanoogan.Com on July 13 where he asserts that giving discretionary money is a way of currying favor with voters in the next election was aimed at me. We haven’t had discretionary money for over five years now. In spite of not having the ... (click for more)

The name of the commissioner who gave it to the school ... (click for more)
