Cops probe pics of boy, 6, on sister’s phone
Fayetteville police are investigating an incident of possible child abuse that stemmed from a Dec. 14 call of a domestic disturbance at Piedmont Fayette Hospital. A conversation with the couple led to the discovery of inappropriate photos of their 6-year-old son found on the cell phone belonging to one of their daughters.
Fayetteville Police Department spokesman Steve Crawshaw said officers were called to Piedmont Fayette Hospital at approximately 10 p.m. on Dec. 14 in relation to a domestic disturbance between a married couple. The names of the individuals were not released because the incident is still under investigation, though Crawshaw did say the couple previously lived in Fayette County and had recently moved to Riverdale.
The woman told officers her husband had been abusive in the past. The husband in response raised questions about inappropriate photos of their 6-year-old son that had been found on the cell phone belonging to one of their daughters, Crawshaw said. The husband said he found the photos in September while the family still lived in Fayette County, said Crawshaw.
Officers secured the cell phone and found several photos of the 6-year-old boy asleep with his pants pulled down and one or more of his three sisters, ages 12, 13 and 15, posing in the photo, Crawshaw said.
Crawshaw said the investigation is ongoing.
