Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an assault on Stillwater Ln. where a teenage girl allegedly attacked her father and grandfather before threatening to murder them and her grandmother.

The teen attempted to run away when the grandfather saw her near the road with a suitcase. The grandfather told the father, who convinced the teen to come back inside. An argument ensued and the grandfather said he saw the teen hit the father in the face. He said he tried to detain the teen and she bit him in the arm causing him to bleed. The teen walked out of the residence after allegedly stating “I will murder all of you.” The father and grandmother confirmed the threats.

The teen claimed the father and grandfather tried to pin her down in her room. She admitted to threatening her family. She said she wanted to run away to the Department of Family and Children Services claiming she doesn’t think she’s in a good home.

Department of Juvenile Justice officers transported the teen to the Regional Youth Detention Center in Dalton.
