A bullying incident is being investigated by the Hempstead County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).

According to a report from the HCSO, a deputy was sent to Wadley Regional Hospital in Hope concerning an incident that occurred at Blevins School on March 10.

The victim, a 12-year-old girl, reportedly said she was playing basketball at recess when a 13-year-old boy pushed her down and kicked her in the right side of the head. She said this boy has been bullying her since school began.

The victim’s left knee was scraped, according to the report, as was the right side of her hip. The report states every time they go to recess or physical education class, this boy hits her or tries to throw a ball at her.

The victim’s mother reportedly said she’s talked with the teachers and principals about this, and wanted to report it to the HCSO as well. The matter will be turned over to juvenile authorities.


A deputy with the HCSO was sent to a house on Hempstead 142 shortly after midnight Saturday.

When he arrived, he met with a 42-year-old woman who said her ex-boyfriend came to the house and was beating on the front door, yelling to get her to let him in. She reportedly told the deputy she’d kicked him out for being abusive to her.

According to the report, the woman said the last time she heard her ex was about 20 minutes before the deputy arrived, and suggested he might be hiding in the woods or around her house. Deputies searched the property, but were unable to find anyone. They also went to the woman’s former residence and checked, again finding nothing.


Deputies responded to a breaking or entering call shortly after midnight Saturday at an Emmet residence.

According to the report, the deputy met with a 29-year-old woman who said she’d been asleep in the living room and heard a noise from the laundry room. When she sat up, the report states, she heard the back door slam shut. She told the deputy when she checked she saw the heat lamp for her chickens swinging as though it had been hit.

Deputies searched the property, but found no one. The deputies were sent back to the residence shortly before 2 a.m. in response to someone reportedly tapping on a kitchen window. Again, a search turned up nothing and no one.


A 38-year-old woman at Hemsptead 23 told deputies she saw someone with a flashlight around a shed on her property around 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Deputies are investigating a burglary at the Southside Church of Christ.

The call came around 1:40 p.m. Saturday. When deputies arrived they talked to a member of the church who said another member had found the church had been broken into. The front door had reportedly been forced open and the communion supplies taken. The supplies were allegedly taken to a different location in the church and eaten. According to the report, someone also used the restroom and left.


Deputies responded to a breaking or entering call on Hwy. 355 South shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday.

The caller, who wasn’t identified in the report, said someone had broken into a storage building on his father’s property. A 10×6 foot tarp was reportedly the only thing taken and it was valued at $30.

Entry was reportedly gained through a window on the back side of the structure. The victim said neither he nor his father wanted to file charges.


Deputies were sent to Hempstead 155 around 7:45 p.m. Sunday in reference to a terroristic threatening call.

A 35-year-old man reportedly made the call and said he needed a deputy to go to the address before he got there because if they didn’t there would be a mass murder. The caller was reportedly irate.

When deputies got there, they met with the caller’s wife who said her husband hadn’t been there since noon, had taken too much of his medication and had been drinking as well. She said her husband was reportedly living somewhere around the Caney Creek area, and she and the children were fine and hadn’t heard from him since he left.

Deputies searched for the husband, but were unable to find him.

A warrants check on those involved showed Mayani Baza had a warrant out in Hempstead County in the amount of $1,070. Baza was arrested on this warrant. Maria Cantu was given an April 3 court date for third degree battery, as was Marissa Delarosa and Pedro Capetillo.
