SMASH AND GRAB
Police responded to an alarm at Fresh Fitz, 2121 University Ave., just after 2 a.m. on Nov. 4. When they arrived, they found a window had been broken out of the front door by chunks of concrete. Once inside, they discovered three jackets priced at $150 were missing and an unknown amount of jeans were missing from the display by the door. This was the second “smash and grab” at the store in two days, according to reports. Police will view security cameras. Investigations continue.
A man was driving along Southeast 6th Street around 3 p.m. on Nov. 3 when he came upon a teenaged male with a stalled white Jeep Cherokee. He stopped to help jump-start the vehicle, but after the vehicle started, the kid allegedly hit him in the forehead with a crowbar. The victim admitted to police that he has a history with the suspect who just got out of prison for stabbing both him and another man and that he has a no-contact order on the suspect. He was taken to the hospital by his wife.
CATCH A SUSPECT BY THE TOW
Officers were called to assist Oakridge Security around 11 p.m. on Nov. 2. Crow Tow was there to impound illegally parked cars, including the suspect’s vehicle. The tow truck driver was on the ground getting ready to hook the suspect’s vehicle up to the truck when the suspect came out and reportedly got into the driver’s seat, started the car and backed up. Both the tow truck driver and the security officer had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit, they said. Police went on to find the suspect’s vehicle parked in front of another building at the complex, unoccupied. The suspect then came out and was arrested for assault with a weapon. CV
