Crime Blotter: 4/3/16 - 4/9/16

A man was taken into custody after biting his girlfriend's pinky finger during an argument Wednesday morning. The victim, a 53-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital while a responding officer stayed at the apartment to interview the suspect, 48-year-old Frederick Davis. Davis said that the victim had been in and out of the apartment for several hours since he arrived around 9 p.m. Tuesday, and they began arguing sometime after 1 a.m. Wednesday. Davis was lying on the floor, with the victim sitting behind him while they argued. He said she grabbed his face and fell forward when he tried to pull her off, which caused his mouth to close on her finger. The victim confirmed Davis' story when she was questioned at the hospital. They had been living together sporadically for five years.

A woman was assaulted and her iPhone 6 was stolen by another young woman Wednesday around 4:45 p.m. The victim had been "messing with" a man with whom the suspect, 25-year-old Angilette Green, previously had a relationship. Green chased the suspect along School House Road, began punching her in the face, then pinned her down and continued hitting her. Green yelled at the victim to give her the phone and left in a tan SUV. The victim couldn't provide good descriptions of Green's companions and turned down the responding officer's offer to call EMS. Officers tried to track the victim's phone but didn't find Green.

A woman allegedly stole a reusable shopping tote from Burlington Coat Factory on Bush River Road on Friday around 10:45 a.m. The woman who reported the crime said that the suspect was a white woman with dark hair, wearing jeans and a dark shirt with a pink vest. The suspect ran out a fire exit and left in a white minivan. The accuser could not confirm whether or not there was any other merchandise in the reusable bag, which was valued at $1.
