Suspect still on the loose

June 12, 2006

Moultrie - A man wanted for beating three people with a metal pipe in Moultrie is still on the loose.

20-year-old Fernando Malagon is wanted for three counts of aggravated assault. Police have issued an arrest warrant, but still haven't found him.

Investigators believe Malagon rushed into a Moultrie Inn room last Monday and beat 18-year-old Gezelda Calles, 6-year-old Jenifer Rivas and 9-year-old Dennis Rivas with a metal pipe. Both children were taken to a Tallahassee hospital but are doing much better. Calles was treated and released from a Moultrie hospital.

Police are hoping the public can help lead them to Malagon. Sgt. Roger Lindsay says, "Right now, we're just looking for his whereabouts. We've contacted some relatives and they're assisting with us trying to make his location."

Anyone with information should call Moultrie Police.
