Warning: The following story contains information regarding sexual violence against children.

Whitfield County (October 23, 2022) – Police were called to the Hamilton Medical Center in response to the sexual assault of a 14-year-old female who had been engaged in sexual relations with a 19-year-old male, Isaac Donavan Alexander.

When police arrived at the hospital, they spoke to the victim’s mother, who informed them her landlord contacted her at work about a suspicious white Honda parked outside her home while her teenage daughter was home alone.

The mother called the teen, who assured her everything was ok, but feeling uneasy about what the landlord had told her about a car being parked outside, she asked the girl’s grandmother to stop by for a visit to make sure everything was fine.

When the mother got home from work, she observed the blinds in the teen’s bedroom being raised, but when she questioned the teen, she got no answers. Later, the teen’s mom was contacted by the grandmother that the teen had admitted to having sex with 19-year-old Alexander.

On the date of the incident, the teen had told Alexander she was home alone, invited him over, where he entered through the bedroom window, and they engaged in kissing, cuddling, and sex. When asked if Alexander’s penis penetrated her, she said yes.

When officers interviewed the team about the relations between her and Alexander, she told officers two weeks before the incident, she had reached out to Alexander via Snapchat and told Alexander that she was 14 years old. Alexander informed her he was employed by the Whitfield County Fire Department.

According to the Whitfield County Fire Chief, Alexander had been a recruit with them but was terminated prior to the incident occurring. Alexander was not employed by the Whitfield County Fire Department when this incident occurred.

Alexander is currently facing charges of child molestation, and the case has been handed over to the Criminal Investigations Department for further investigation.
