Crime Blotter for 10/18 to 10/24

These briefs do not include every incident from the last week and suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Information could change as investigations continue.

Last Tuesday morning, officers responded to a call on Love Street reporting a burglary in process. The suspect, a 19-year-old black male, fled the scene on foot after attacking the responding officer. The victim told police that the suspect took a television, an XBox 360 and an assortment of video games. The suspect also stole a diaper bag, which he used to carry the video games and the console. A witness reported seeing the suspect leave a different house on Love Street just minutes before officers reached her. The television and the bag containing the games and console were recovered at the second house. Some of the video games stolen include Assassin’s Creed, Body and Brain Connection, Harry Potter and Call of Duty.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, a 34-year-old white male reported the burglary of his truck. Officers responded to the call at Cedar Terrace, where the victim emerged from his house yelling obscenities and wielding a baseball bat. He said that he and his girlfriend, the suspect, had argued at a bar earlier, after which he returned home. He woke up later with his girlfriend standing over him before she ran outside and left with his truck. The victim was uncooperative while officers were on the scene and proclaimed not to remember the suspect’s name until the officers were about to leave.
