Two arrested on multiple charges of child neglect

FORT MILL, S.C. -- The Fort Mill Police Department arrested two Friday on multiple charges of unlawful neglect of a child. 

Authorities arrested Jonathan William Wright, 27, and Yolanda Valerie Richardson, 28, on three charges each of unlawful neglect of a child. 

Police say that two of the charges were based upon incidents of alleged physical abuse of a 7-year-old and 6-year-old between October 2016 and May 2017. 

The third charge is based upon the allegation that Wright and Richardson were aware that the 7-year-old had been a victim of sexual assault, perpetrated by another family member, Joshua Tyrell Richardson, and failed to report it while allowing him to remain in their home.

Wright and Richardson remain in the York County Detention Center.
