Paulding teen wanted for assault still on the run

A 17-year-old accused of using a Ford-150 pickup to run over another youth after a fight may be heading to Canada with his mother, the Paulding County Sheriff's Office said Thursday afternoon. On Friday, the pair still had not been located, police said.

Diante Andre Rosado will face a felony aggravated assault charge when he's captured, according to Cpl. Ashley Henson.

On Sunday, Rosado and a 15-year-old boy got into a physical fight on Hope Drive in the Twelve Oaks Subdivision off East Paulding Drive, Henson said. Witnesses told deputies that when the fight was over, Rosado got into the truck and ran over the other teen before leaving the area.

The injured teen, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital with foot and ankle injuries, Henson said. His condition was not known Thursday, but he was expected to survive.

Deputies have been searching for Rosado since the incident and on Thursday learned he allegedly may be trying to flee the country.

"Investigators believe that he may be en route to Canada with his mother, Shelevia Raquero Proctor," Henson said in a statement released Thursday afternoon.

The mother and son may be planning to enter Canada via the Buffalo, NY, border crossing, Henson said. The two are possibly traveling in Proctor's 2011 black Toyota Highlander with Georgia tag BRL 9860.

Police described her as 43-year-old black woman, standing 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 205 pounds. Rosado is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 150 pounds, Henson said.

Anyone with information about Rosado's whereabouts is asked to call 770-443-3010. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call the anonymous tip line at 770-445-5535 or email tips@paulding.gov.
