Police seek mother in beating

  • Follow Latest News

Deputies are searching for an Augusta mother who they say attacked her 15-year-old daughter over the weekend.

Authorities said Pekepni Brown, 35, came home late Friday and began punching her daughter at their home in the 800 block of Metcalf Street.

The girl hid in the bathroom, and her mother pursued her and began whipping her with an extension cord, Richmond County Sheriff's Sgt. Blaise Dresser said.

The fight continued Saturday after the girl fled to her aunt's home in the 1500 block of Wilder Street.

Dresser said the girl was treated for bruises and other wounds at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital.

Brown is wanted on charges of first degree cruelty to children.

Anyone with information can call the sheriff's office at (706) 821-1080.

Not condoning her over the

Not condoning her over the hill actions but I wish all the liberal parents who do little or NOTHING to stop their kids from running around, staying out late and getting in all kids of trouble, would also make the headlines.

TK I think you are reading

TK I think you are reading the article wrong. It wasn't the daughter who came in late, it was the mother.

Yea TK, ok.
Rip, I am clueless as to why they reposted the same article when one already exists from yesterday.

That is a pet peeve of mine,

That is a pet peeve of mine, too, Pommom. The better Chronicle reporters will update their articles and keep all the comments together. But some reporters just re-post the article, cluttering up the server and confusing the commenters.

Taking a closer look, I

Taking a closer look, I notice the paths to the two stories are different. The older one is filed in the “news-crime” directory, and the newer one is filed in the “latest news” directory. That seems backward to me. When you first post a story it could go into the “latest news” folder, but when the story cools off, instead of creating another file, just move the story file into the appropriate directory for permanent storage. All the comments could presumably follow the story.

But what do I know?

Lol LL. But you are on to something there!! That is a good idea.
I do know that some articles, have been revised in the past and on the side of it, will be all the related articles previously posted.

Little Lamb, that is

Little Lamb, that is typically what we do with latest news items. Our day editor posts them throughout the day, under latest news.

At the end of the evening, the night editor syncs them with the edited final versions for print. Paths are changed to reflect the section the story belongs in. Page toppers like Crime and Courts and Elections are added, and assignments to Topic Pages are made.

Items that become full stories for print end up in the Metro section as regular stories. Short online briefs that make it into the next day's paper are edited and added to the Across the Area block in the online Metro rail. Across the Area items that do not make it online before they are printed are created as new online briefs and added to the Latest News block on the home page to be available in the morning.

Occasionally an editor will see a story he does not think is online and will post it again, thus leading to the confusion. Apparently this is what happened. The original item is here:
