Hit in the face with a stick…
A 30/m says someone struck him in the face with a large stick several times “in an angry and rude manner”. It happened while the two were arguing over a third person at a home in the 5400 block of S. Stoneborough. The man refused medical treatment. The other person was not there once police arrived.
Catalytic converter stolen…
A 53/m says someone stole the catalytic converter off of a company vehicle in the 700 block of E. Mt. Vernon.
Registration & Insurance papers stolen…
A 42/f says someone broke into two cars in the 8500 block of E. 13th N. She says the thieves made off with registration and insurance paperwork from both cars. Nothing else was reported missing.
...and so do thieves…
A 20/f says someone stole her red 1996 Ford Taurus from a parking lot in the 8400 block of E. Kellogg. She says her car has visible damage to the front passenger headlight area and a “Mean People Suck” bumper sticker. She says her keys are missing, too.
A 17/m student at a school in the 800 block of S. Osage (West High) says another student assaulted him. The attack was witnessed by a third person. The attacker was arrested.
Electric company scammer…
A 53/f says a person called her claiming to be from Westar and advising her that her account was behind. She says the caller scared her by telling her she needs to unplug everything in the house because she was at risk for an electrical fire. The caller then advised her to get a money order and give it to a “Westar” representative when he came to replace the electrical box. The caller said that would leave her in good standing and she would get a check for more than the amount she paid to use as she pleased. The woman didn’t get the money order...she called Westar and was told it was a scam. She then reported it to police.
When pigs fly…
A 42/f says someone threw a ham at the driver’s door of an SUV which was parked in the principal’s parking spot at a school in the 1900 block of S. Laura (Gardiner Elementary).
A 26/m says a client threatened to kill him, the principal of his school and another employee. He says the student has threatened to kill students “who ratted on him”, and pour gasoline on their cars because he was suspended from school and detained at another facility.
A 24/f says a woman drove up to a business in the 3000 block of E. Douglas and stole bundles of firewood. She says the theft was caught on surveillance, but the car’s license plate was not visible because of the way she backed in.
A 26/m says a man brandished a pair of black-handled nunchucks and came toward him in a threatening manner after he tried to stop him from shoplifting. This happened in the 7700 block of E. Kellogg. The employee was not hurt...but the property was eventually recovered and the man was apprehended… (see next report)
Officer attacked with nunchucks…
An officer reports being assaulted by a man who was “Kung-fu fighting” with nunchucks in the 7900 block of E. Kellogg. The officer wasn’t hurt. The man was arrested charges including aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and possession of an illegal weapon
Well, you DID try to steal the stuff…
A 34/f says a woman came into a store in the 600 block of N. West and trying to shoplift. She apparently paid for the items she tried to shoplift and left the store. A while later, she called the store and said the cashier charged her twice for some items and she was mad. She then threatened to come back to the store and beat the cashier up. Officers were sent to the store to check out the situation.
