Peeping Tom Paul Klinck Arrested for Sex Abuse


Police added new sex abuse charges to a peeping Tom suspect in Damascus.

Neighbors on Thursday tackled the man suspected of peeping into a teenage girl’s window, and deputies were trying to determine if it was not the first time.

Clackamas deputies arrested 43-year-old Paul Cameron Klinck for invasion of privacy and were able to find “items of evidence” during a search of his home. On Saturday, he was also charged with encouraging child sex abuse.

Thursday morning around 2 a.m. Clackamas County deputies said an intuitive mother alerted her husband after finding a man looking into their 14-year-old daughter's bedroom window.

They also alerted a neighbor who deputies say caught the man in the act, and got into a scuffle trying to hold him until police arrived.

The alleged victim told investigators that they suspected a peeping Tom had been in the neighborhood for the past year or so.

The neighbor who helped tackle the suspect suffered minor injuries in the fight.

Child Abuse

What is not fully understood by parents that beat their children, some of the physical scars will disappear but the mental scars will linger on. A lot of parents believe in child discipline; especially when it is done properly and with the best intentions. A lot of parents do not believe in physically hitting someone who does not have the ability to defend themselves against someone that is approaching them with an object that can do physical damage.

When disciplining children, please note that there are other methods used today that does not require physical contact and are just as effective if used properly:

Time Outs (only in certain situations)
Children contracts with parents
Taking away something that the child is very fond of for a period of time
Limiting the child’s play time with friends
Taking their television time away
Giving the child an earlier bedtime than normal
Having the child to do extra chores around the house
Having a teen to do volunteer work for a center
Having a teen to assist a neighbor that needs assistance
Talk the problem through with the child
Parents understand that talking does not always help, but it’s a start. One point to remember; follow through on whatever consequence the child is to receive. If you don’t follow through, the child will learn to ignore the threat of being disciplined and continue to test the waters.

The four major types of abuse to children are:

Emotional is behavior that weakens a child’s emotional development or a sense of self-worth such as calling the child a bad name (stupid, dumb, idiot), rejecting the child, not loving the child or not giving the child proper support.

Neglect is failure to provide the basic needs for children suchas food, medical, a place to sleep, education, exposure to domesticviolence, and not responding to a child’s emotional needs. These factors do not necessarily mean that a child has been neglected. They could come from a home environment where poverty and community care is an issue and proper information and resources are needed.

Physical injury such as beating, shaking, choking, hitting the child with an object, or kicking are forms of physical abuse whether the person intended to harm the child or not.

Sexual consists of incest, indecent exposure, rape, fondling of the child’s genitals, sodomy and exposing a child to pornography.

Parents and caregivers must remember that abuse to a child has short and long term affects such as aggressive behavior, learning disorders, the child becoming anti-social, depression, and brain

damage if a child is hit upside the head. As the child gets older they may experiment with drugs or become an abuser of drugs and alcohol, have criminal behavior, and of course there’s teen pregnancy.

David Anthony Tyre Arrested for Murder

A Spartanburg man has been charged with homicide by child abuse and child abuse with great bodily harm following the death of a ten year old girl.

The arrest warrant says David Anthony Tyre, 31, shook the young child and dropped her on her head.

Tyre is being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center with no bond listed according to the jail website.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office and the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office are jointly investigating the death of Meah Danielle Weidner, 10, of Boiling Springs.

A deputy was called to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center on July 5 for a possible child abuse case. The incident report says Tyre, who is the boyfriend of the mother of the child, said he told the woman Meah was having a seizure.

The deputy says multiple bruises to her body and head were found and it was learned the girl suffered a fractured arm two weeks earlier.

Weidner died on July 7 and another SCSO incident report says Tyre admitted he did break the girl’s arm after originally saying she fell out of bed. The report says Tyre told the deputy and other law officials that “I must have shaken her too hard” following Weidner’s death.

The SCSO incident report lists the cause of death as “brain injuries,“ but the manner of death will be announced once toxicology studies are complete according to Coroner Rusty Clevenger.

The child abuse with great bodily harm charge against Tyre is related to her fractured arm in June.

Chief John Hall of Hilltop Fire Department confirms Tony Tyre was a volunteer firefighter with the department up until this week when he resigned “citing personal reasons”.

Tyre had been with the department since 2002.

Hall says Tyre was “a good firefighter, always showed up to calls and performed his job well”.

Antonio Glenwood Byrd Trial for Murdering 2-year-old Begins

The state is set to begin its case today in Lillington against a man accused of murdering a 2-year-old Anderson Creek girl.

Antonio Glenwood Byrd, 26, also of Anderson Creek, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the July 2007 death of Miracle McLean.

Mr. Byrd, the boyfriend of Miracle's mother Sheteka McDougald, was charged after he took the unresponsive child to the Anderson Creek Fire Station saying she had drowned.

An autopsy later showed the child had suffered blunt force trauma to the head and abdomen. The autopsy linked the child's death to the latter injuries saying she had bled to death internally.

The autopsy also said the child was also recovering from a fractured right shoulder at the time of her death.

Mr. Byrd was offered a plea deal in May, but turned down the 114-month active sentence.

Mr. Byrd's attorney, Tony Buzzard, said both Mr. Byrd and his girlfriend were at work the night of the incident and said Miracle and her 3-year-old sister were in the care of a family member when the child's injuries occurred.

Assistant District Attorneys Davis Weddle and Teresa Postel are handling the prosecution of the case. Wake County Superior Court Judge Ripley Rand is presiding.

Rolland Bay Arrested for Child Molestation

A 47-year-old Rochester man was arrested on child molestation charges Saturday morning following a two-week investigation by Indiana State Police.

Indiana State Police Detective Brian Dormer began investigating Rolland D. Bay, of 4859 Boicourt Drive, two weeks ago when a woman reported that her 12-year-old son had allegedly been molested by Bay.

Police investigations revealed that Bay had purportedly molested the boy several time since 2006, and Bay was taken into custody at his home without incident Saturday.

Bay was served a Fulton Superior Court arrest warrant alleging two class A felony charges and one class C felony charge of child molesting. He is incarcerated in the Fulton Couny Jail this morning with a $100,000 bond.

Master Trooper Randy Shaver and officers from the Fulton County Sheriff's department assisted Detective Dormer in serving the arrest warrant.

Juan Guzman Vega Arrested for Sexually Assaulting 13-year-old

Juan Guzman Vega befriended the teen while she was at the pool with her mother Thursday evening at the apartment complex where they live in the 4600 block of Vance Jackson Road, an arrest warrant affidavit stated.

The teen told police that Vega, 21, groped her body beneath her bikini several times and did not stop when she asked him to, the report says.

Vega then pulled the teen to the pool’s deep end, where he proceeded to sexually assault the girl, the warrant alleges.

Vega told police the girl initiated sexual contact and that he did not know her age, the report states. Vega was in custody in lieu of $100,000 bond.
