MARIETTA — Cobb Police arrested at least three Marietta men last week on charges of physically abusing young boys multiple times in separate cases.

Jabril Ross was arrested Monday on a felony charge of cruelty to children.

According to the warrant, from October 2013 to the end of January, Ross struck a child several times with a belt and cord “causing significant injuries.”

“The child had several loop-shaped injuries on his lower back, on the front of his legs, and on his arm,” the warrant said. “The skin in those areas had been broken and there were scabs on them.”

According to the arrest report, Ross has a chest tattoo with crosses and the words, “Only God Can Judge Me.” He also has a half Bob Marley and half lion head tattoo, as well as a tattoo of a skeleton with an eye popping out.

Ross was given a $5,000 bond and released the next day.

Tyquan Stirling was arrested Monday on a misdemeanor charge of simple battery and family violence.

According to the warrant, Stirling caused “substantial physical harm” to the 5-year-old son of his girlfriend while the couple lived together.

The mother said Stirling struck the child multiple times with a belt on the thigh, leaving welts that turned into bruises, which remained visible for days, the warrant said.

Stirling, who has a tattoo that says “Brooklyn’s Finest,” was given a $2,500 bond, but remains in the Cobb jail.

Amilcar Lopez-Lucas was arrested last Sunday on a felony charge of cruelty to children and two misdemeanor charges of willful obstruction.

According to the warrant, a nine-year-old boy “displayed signs of excessive bruising with scars and marks consistent with physical beatings.”

Included in the list of injuries was a cut on his left arm, as well as marks on his neck and back “consistent with being struck with an electrical cord,” the warrant said.

The boy, who is now in protective custody with Division of Family and Children Services, said Lopez-Lucas had beat him repeatedly with no medical care.

When police arrived at the house off Grambling Street to investigate the allegation of child abuse, Lopez-Lucas tried to jump out a side window, the warrant said.

He was not granted bail and is in the Cobb jail on an immigration hold.
