Cherokee Sheriff’s deputies received a call at approximately 11:50 a.m. Friday in reference to a male who was taking pictures of young children at Hobgood Park off Bells Ferry Road. A baseball tournament was in progress at the park when parents noticed the male taking pictures of children around the bleachers. When parents confronted the male, he ran from the park. Prior to the call being dispatched, deputies on patrol near the park observed a white male run across Towne Lake Parkway from Hobgood Park into the Bentley Hills subdivision. Deputies immediately entered the Bentley Hills subdivision as the call was being dispatched. Deputies began searching the area on foot, and the suspect was quickly located hiding behind a house.
Currently Nathan Michael Haslick, 39, of Woodstock, is charged with Loitering and Prowling. Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division were called to the scene and will be investigating the incident. Haslick is in custody at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center with a $1,000 bond.
