BACK THAT VAN UP
Officers were called to the 700 block of East Fifth Street on Jan. 8 to address a fight between two women at an apartment building. Inside the building, the victim said the suspect punched a thermostat and broke it, then left and got into her van. The victim went outside to get a picture of the license plate. That’s when the suspect backed into the victim, striking her in the knee. As she was falling, the victim said she grabbed the rear wiper blade of the van so she did not get drug under, which caused the window to shatter. The suspect admitted to police that she watched the victim take the picture and intended to assault her with the van. She was charged with assault with a weapon and fifth-degree criminal mischief.
BURGLARIZED BY GAMERS
Police were tripped to the 1200 block of East Phillip Street for a burglary report on Jan. 8. Officers met with a couple who stated they had left their house at 11 a.m. and returned around 3 p.m. to find their front door kicked in and a footprint had been left on it. Among the missing items, the victims reported an Xbox 360 Kinect with 16 games, a laptop and a PSP2.
HIGH VOLTAGE ROBBERY
Responding to a Craigslist ad for an iPad for sale, a woman went to the Git-n-Go at East 33rd and University around 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 6. Upon arrival, three teenaged suspects showed her the iPad, but when she stated she didn’t want to buy it, they robbed her at gunpoint. The victim grabbed her cell phone to call 911, but one of the suspects punched her in the head and took her phone while another tazed a second victim. The teens fled on foot. CV
