Stone Mountain Park, Georgia (The Weekly Vice) – Patrick Leithead, 36, of Stone Park was arrested September 20th when an off-duty officer caught him molesting a girl in a park bathroom.
Deputy Ruth Stringer of the Dekalb County Sheriff’s Office says she was at Stone Mountain Park when she sensed something was up in the bathroom stall next to her.
Her instincts proved correct – Leithead was sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl just inches away – and the girl's parents, who were waiting for her outside the bathroom, were unaware of what was happening.
According to Stringer, she first noticed the man’s shoes underneath the stall wall and described that the voice of the teen sounded distressed. She ordered Leithead out of the stall and went to the girl, who appeared to be shaken and disheveled. When the girl assured her she was okay, Stringer shouted for someone to call 911.
But Deputy Stringer wasn’t the only off-duty officer who would assist in the apprehension of this filthy pervert – an officer with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was also nearby and had seen Leithead earlier observing women outside the bathroom. She detained the suspect until authorities arrived, while Stringer took care of the victim.
Leithead was booked on charges of aggravated child molestation. He is being held without bond.
