A 47/f reports several shots being fired into her home in the 2600 block of N. Minnesota. No one was hurt.
A woman called police concerned that her daughter was putting her son (presuming the daughter’s son so the woman’s grandson) in situations that may cause him harm. She says her daughter is taking the boy to homes where drugs are present. Police showed up, but the woman and her son had already left.
A 60/m called police because he says he didn’t know what else to do. He’s made several reports of his property being stolen, people breaking into his house and tying his dog’s chain up so she can’t get to her food and water. He didn’t want officers out to his house and said he didn’t want to be a bother - but he didn’t know where else to turn. He says this sort of stuff has been going on for years. He doesn’t know the name of the person he thinks is responsible, but believes he would recognize him if he saw him.
A 45/m says someone removed screws from the hinges of an outside meat freezer at a business in the 1900 block of S. Seneca. The thief then stole property from the freezer. No idea who did it.
A 55/m reports a woman dumping a plate of meatloaf on his head during an argument. A witness says she saw the incident. The woman was arrested for Battery/DV.
Petsitting is hard…
A man called police saying that he was housesitting for some friends. He let the dogs out in the backyard, but didn’t realize that the gate was open. The dogs got out of the fence and are nowhere to be found.
Gonna blow it up…
A 48/f reports someone threatening to blow up her business “with them inside” in the 2700 block of E. Boulevard. She says the threat stemmed from an argument over a store policy. The person admitted to the threat and was arrested for bomb threats.
An 18/m reports someone coming into the business where he works in the 1000 block of N. Broadway armed with a black handgun. He says the man pointed the gun at him and demanded money from the register and safe - then left. No one was hurt.
A 20/f called police after seeing a dog locked in a car in the 4600 block of W. Kellogg for more than thirty minutes. She said the dog appeared “distressed”. Police removed the dog from the car and contacted the dog’s owner. Animal control was called in and the owner was cited.
“DO NOT POINT AT PEOPLE”...
A 27/f says someone pointed a large firework at her and five others. The firework was emitting a large shower of sparks. One of them caught some of the incident on video. Police arrested the person on six counts of aggravated assault.
Also, don’t put them in mailboxes…
A 47/f says she came home and found her mailbox, siding and window were damaged. She’s pretty sure someone put fireworks in her mailbox. She says her husband has recently had some problems with neighbor kids, but has no way of proving they did it.
12:02 am (Saturday)
A 39/f reports a neighbor’s six year old son setting off fireworks right beside their cars, causing damage. The parents said she didn’t see any damage to the vehicles. They all agreed not to make a big deal about it because it wasn’t intentional.
I was just askin’...
A 58/m says he was getting out of his car in the 500 block of N. Clara and made a comment to his neighbor asking about what kind of fireworks they were setting off. He says the neighbor became belligerent and started making threatening and vulgar comments to him.
A 45/f says a disgruntled customer called her business in the 12500 block of E. Central and became belligerent with her, then threatened to come to where she is. She says she took that as a threat to her safety.
A 25/f says she bent over to look at makeup at a store (location not listed due to the nature of the case) when someone lifted up the back of her dress. When she turned around to ask the guy what he was doing, the man made a comment that he “just ran into her”, then turned and walked away, swiftly.
Stealing, forging, resisting…
A 28/m reports someone shoplifting from a store in the 4800 block of S. Broadway, then trying to pass a forged check in order to make more purchases. The man chased the person through the parking lot and an eyewitness assisted in taking her into custody. The woman then gave a false name to police. She was arrested on several charges. The stolen property was retained by the store.
A woman reports her ex-roommate vandalizing her current roommate’s car with a pickaxe in the 900 block of S. Waverly. The incident was witnessed by at least three people. The vandal was arrested.
