Update: Assault Suspect Turns Self In
Seventeen-year-old Diante Andre Rosado had been wanted by Paulding County Sheriff’s Office deputies since last week.
Officials with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office Monday morning announced that a local assault suspect that had been sought since last week turned himself in to authorities in New York.
Diante Andre Rosado, 17, is wanted out of Paulding County after allegedly hitting and running over a boy with a vehicle following a fight between the two.
The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday morning that Rosado was being sought to face a felony aggravated assault charge over the July 1 incident. Officials later that day said Rosado and his mother were believed to be fleeing for Canada by way of a border crossing in Buffalo, N.Y.
PCSO Cpl. Ashley Henson in a news release Monday said Rosado turned himself in without incident to authorities in Beacon, N.Y., over the weekend.
Henson said Rosado will face the felony aggravated assault charge upon his return to Paulding, but officials expect that it will take some time to get him back to the county from New York.
Henson also said that Rosado’s mother, Shelevia Raquero Proctor, does not face any charges at this time.
