Inappropriate conduct…

A 58/f says someone had an unknown care worker at a group home in the 3300 block of N. Webb Road touch a resident inappropriately, then left her room after stealing cash. There’s very little information about who it was and the incident could have happened more than a year ago.

Almost stolen rims…
11:20 am
A 64/m says two people pulled up in his driveway in the 1400 block of N. Fairview. One of them moved some aluminum rims that were in his driveway. The owner yelled at the two people. At that point, the guy threw back the rims and they both took off in the car. The owner wanted WPD to fingerprint the rims in hopes of catching the potential thieves.

Left behind…
11:40 am
An employee at a hospital reports a person walking out of the hospital against doctor’s orders, leaving behind a small child who was in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit).

No other information is listed, but it appears the second person may be another child.

Jury duty scam…

Nails…
