Two teens were arrested in Rome Thursday after an investigation into a sexual assault. Heith Lamar Dixon, 17 of Lake Park, turned himself in to the Floyd County Jail after a warrant was taken for his arrest. Reports said that Dixon allegedly sexually assaulted a student at the Georgia School for the Deaf last month. They added that Dixon went into the room of a GSD student on December 17 and touched them in an inappropriate manor. Kelby Wade Kenner, 18 of Chatsworth, also turned himself in after he was accused of entering male’s room and inappropriately touched his private area.
Kenner then allegedly mimicked a sexual act.
Dixon is also accused of holding the student down by the arms in an attempt to pull the victim’s pants down.
Dixon and Kenner are both charged with felony sexual battery against a child under the age of 16.
