Three men have been arrested for alleged sex-related crimes in the city of Collegedale, and it all started on a dating app called “Plenty of Fish”.

On March 24, Collegedale Police responded to a home in a neighborhood off of University Drive, in the city’s South District, after it was discovered that a juvenile had met an adult male online and provided him with her home address.

The 16-year-old alleged victim stated that she had met a man identifying himself only as “Nick” on a dating app called Plenty of Fish, and invited him to her home early in the morning of March 24.

After he arrived, she informed him that she was only 16.  She claimed he then became aggressive and allegedly forced her to have sex with him.

Investigators were able to identify the victim’s alleged assailant as Nicholas Josh Acup, a 23-year-old Missouri resident that had been in town temporarily for a job.  However, that was not all the detectives discovered.

The investigation soon revealed two other persons that also had encounters with the minor alleged victim through the dating sites Plenty of Fish and Tinder.  Kevin Ornelas, 19, of Ooltewah and 21-year-old John Louisdor of Chattanooga were both identified, interviewed, and arrested on multiple sexual exploitation of a minor-related charges.

Ornelas and Louisdor are now out on bond. Acup is in custody in Missouri on the Collegedale warrant and in the process of being extradited back to Tennessee for the offense of statutory rape.

Office Of Community Resilience Is Basically Office Of Multicultural Affairs

I don't disagree with the concept of the mayor's new Office of Community Resilience. I didn't disagree with it when he created it seven years ago and called it the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Obviously, the office was a failure. What has it accomplished? I'm guessing millions of dollars of funding and nothing to show for it. Now, the mayor is going to duplicate the office ...
