Rocks, paper, scissors: The parents of an 8-year-old girl who was struck by a rock while riding her bicycle in front of their home said they called deputies because the boys who threw the rock have been bullying her on the school bus , Saturday. The girl had an abrasion on her upper arm, deputies said. The 12-year-old boy who threw the rock initially said they’d just been walking around and nothing happened, but his friend admitted the miscreant had picked up rocks and was throwing them at the girl and her friend de ella.

Going once: A woman living with a family member in Richmond said she needed help getting her things out of the residence, Friday. She said she simply wanted to pack her belongings and leave because she didn’t want to live there if her sibling was going to “threaten and scream at her” because her dogs live with them. She said he’s moody and he shoved her against a wall and threatened to throw a TV at her. He told deputies her dogs have been a constant problem and the arguing started that day as soon as he woke up and saw one of them had had an accident on her carpet. The bickering grew progressively worse, he said, but he denied shoving her or threatening her. Another family member helped her gather her things from her. After they’d left, he called deputies to report $600 missing from his wallet.

Anger issues: A Richmond man said a juvenile assaulted him after he told his parents the teen was smoking marijuana, Friday. The youth, already on probation for fighting in school, told deputies he hit the man “a couple times in the head and once in the rib” because he did not like that his parents found out about his illicit activities. He’d been staying with the older man because he seemed to behave better there, his parents said he, and he refused to go back to their house for the night because “he gets yelled at a lot,” so he was charged with domestic violence and booked into juvenile detention.
