Thursday May 12, 2022 at approximatley 2130 hrs I, Sgt. Blaylock, responded to a fight in progress call at [70 BLOCK] County Road 226. I was advised a male subject (Tyler Hendricks) had came onto the property and had hit the caller’s grandson; caller later identified as [WITNESS #1] and the 15 y/o victim as [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. I was also informed the Hendricks subject had ran off into the woods and the victim’s grandfather was in a red pick-up truck looking for Hendricks. Due to parties being seperated at the time of dispatch I responded non-emergency (light/sirens not utilized). I arrived at the residence at approximately 2143 hrs. A short time later Deputy Howard #524 arrived on scene and asked him to patrol the area for Tyler Hendricks.
On scene I spoke with [WITNESS #1], her father “[WITNESS #2]” and [REDACTED BY AGENCY]. Mr. [WITNESS #2] stated Tyler Hendricks has been coming onto his property on and off for some time and he has told him repeatedly he was not wanted. Ms. [WITNESS #1] said Tyler is usually “doped” up when he shows up. Mr. [WITNESS #2] said Tyler stays with his grandparents most of the time over on Talona Rd and he has even asked his grandparents to tell him to stay off his property. I asked if a Criminal Trespass had been issued to Tyler and was informed there had not been. I explained to them if and when I make contact with Tyler I can then issue one to him. Mr. [WITNESS #2] said he would take care of Tyler the next time he came onto his property. Ms. [WITNESS #1] was worried her grandson would get into trouble if he fought back if Tyler attacked him again.
I then asked [REDACTED BY AGENCY] what happened. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] stated he had been inside the tent talking to his mon ([REDACTED]) and when he exited the tent Tyler was outside and had his pants down to his knees. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] said he told Tyler to pull his pants up to which Tyler replied “you aint gonna tell me what to do”. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] said Tyler then began swinging at him and he ducked but Tyler punched him in the mouth and then started chasing him. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] said he ran to his mom and his mom told Tyler to leave. I asked [REDACTED BY AGENCY] if I could check his face due to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] not knowing if Tyler had left any marks. I shined my flashlight onto [REDACTED BY AGENCY] face and noticed red marks on [REDACTED BY AGENCY] upper lip under his nostrils. I asked Ms. [WITNESS #1] if I could take photo’s of [REDACTED BY AGENCY] injuries and she agreed.
I asked Ms. [WITNESS #1] if she would allow [REDACTED BY AGENCY] complete a victim statement and she sign as the witness since she is [REDACTED BY AGENCY] legal guardian and she gave permission. [REDACTED BY AGENCY] completed the statement and Ms. [WITNESS #1] signed (witnessed) what he had written. I told the family I would petition the judge for a warrant and completed a Request for Notification and signed by [WITNESS #1]. I gave Ms. [WITNESS #1] a Victim’s Pamphlet with my name, badge number and this case number.
Due to the testimonial evidence (verbal and written) and physical evidence to [REDACTED BY AGENCY] nose I will be seeking a warrant for Tyler Hendricks for O.C.G.A 16-5-23 Simple Battery and O.C.G.A 16-5-70 Cruelty to Children 2nd Degree.
