A 7-year-old child saved her teen sister as she was being raped by a family member’s friend. She ran to a neighbor’s home to get help for her 14-year-old sister, who was given alcohol before she was assaulted.
On Wednesday night, the siblings were being watched by their 51-year-old aunt Melinda McNatt, who provided alcohol for the teen, according to Al. McNatt invited company over, including Tony Nathan Grissom, 30, to the trailer park in Russellville, Alabama and allegedly joined her in drinking and taking meth.
Grissom has been jailed for rape and McNatt has been arrested for providing alcohol to a minor and drug possession according to ABC31.
“(The teen) got drunk, and Grissom took advantage of the situation,” Sheriff Shannon Oliver told ABC31. “I just can’t understand why a 30-year-old man has that kind of thought. It’s just senseless and awful.”
The 14-year-old victim was nearly passed out when she was

Shocking camera footage shows an elderly man who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease being beaten by a care worker at a Canadian nursing home. The family of 89-year-old Georges Karam installed the surveillance cameras in his room at Ottawa’s Gary J. Armstrong Long Term Care Home after noticing several unexplained injuries to their loved one. Police arrested personal care worker Jie Xiao in connection with the incident and charged him with assault.
“In the fall of 2016 and early 2017, my grandfather kept suffering from bruises, cuts and lesions — mostly to his face,” Karam’s grandson Daniel Nassrallah told CBC Radio-Canada. “Sometimes the home would have answers saying he fell out of bed, [but] my grandfather is immobile, so we didn’t necessarily believe [that].” With the approval of the Armstrong Home’s management and the knowledge of staff, the family installed the camera, which Nassrallah said was “extremely visible.”
