Cohutta man charged with molesting teen girl

A girl who was initially reported as a missing juvenile returned a short time later to tell her mother she’d had sexual relations with a Cohutta man who has since been jailed, officials said.

Anthony Deparish Quinn, 24, of 1305 North Hills Drive, Lot 12B, was charged Thursday by the Dalton Police Department with child molestation.

The charge stemmed from Quinn having relations with the girl, who is 15, said Dalton Police Department spokesman Bruce Frazier.

“She came home later and told our investigators and her mom what had been going on,” Frazier said. “Our investigation is still ongoing.”

Quinn remained in the Whitfield County jail without bond on Friday.

• In Murray County, the sheriff’s office is investigating the circumstances surrounding an incident in which a man was charged with rape.

Wilbert Ryan Haynes, 26, of 235 Henry Gallman Road, Resaca, was charged Thursday with simple battery (family violence) and rape.

Sheriff’s office Capt. John Cherry said some questions have surfaced since the arrest, and officials will speak with the District Attorney’s Office about whether the charges should be changed. He said officials will release more information after that determination.

“This is still under investigation at this time, and we’re having to hold on to everything (as far as providing more information) right now,” Cherry said.

Haynes remained in the Murray County jail with a $10,500 bond on Friday.
