Authorities say two teens have been arrested after robbing a Georgia home twice in one day. Citing a Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office release, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports 18-year-old Jarrell Bankston and a 16-year-old were arrested. The two were taken into custody on charges including burglary and possession of drug-related objects. Police haven’t released the identity of the 16-year-old. The release says the teens robbed the Woodstock home earlier that day and were spotted trying to re-enter it. The release says they ran when deputies arrived but were later arrested. It says deputies recovered a backpack believed to have been taken from the home. The backpack held clothing, two knives, drug-related objects, and less than an ounce of marijuana. (

A viral video that appears to show a visitor at the Los Angeles Zoo hop a fence, sneak up from behind, and spank a hippopotamus has prompted a police investigation. The bizarre video was posted last week and showed the unidentified man approach the two hippos, named Rosie and Mara. Rosie, 4-years-old, was the one who was spanked. The report said the hippo did not have any visible injuries, but an encounter like that could be stressful. A Zoo spokeswoman stated, “We seriously feel this was an isolated incident, most people know not to go in with the animals. It’s common sense.” Hippos are the world’s deadliest large land animal due to their aggressive nature and sharp teeth. The animals can weigh up to three tons and kill about 500 people in Africa every year.  (
