According to Paulich, the victim was able to disclose the location of the occurrence as well as the identification of the individual who shot her, and she was then sent to a local hospital for treatment. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Major Crimes Unit issued a search warrant at a home on Rainbow Road in Cobb with the help of the Sheriff’s Crisis Response Unit, according to Paulich.
Toles, who the victim had named as the suspect, was taken into custody without incident there, according to Paulich. Toles was taken to the Lake County Detention Center. Toles was arrested just after 6 a.m. and booked shortly after 9 a.m., according to booking records.
Battery with a felony of serious bodily injury, aggravated assault with a handgun, aggravated child abuse, and a misdemeanor of displaying a firearm in a menacing manner was among the charges on his arrest sheet. On Tuesday afternoon, he remained in detention, with bail set at $100,000, according to his arrest record.
He is scheduled to be arraigned in Lake County Superior Court on Thursday, according to jail records. On Tuesday afternoon, Paulich informed Lake County News that police were still looking into the case and interviewing witnesses. Paulich said the sheriff’s office had past contact with Toles, but it was largely as a reporting party in events. Detective Nate Newton can be reached at 707-262-4236 if you have any information on this event.
