ONE DUMB POTHEAD
Police were called to the 1500 block of York Street just after midnight on May 29 regarding a robbery. The victim said he arrived at the residence to buy some weed even though he already owed the guys money from a previous transaction, and that’s why they beat him up and took the $275 he had. Police were permitted to go inside the house and search for the suspects, which they found hiding in a bed bug- and roach-infested basement along with dead animals, according to the report. Two suspects were arrested and the victim was taken to the hospital.
A woman was walking on the pedestrian bridge at the 600 block of Robert D. Ray Drive, crossing the river just after 6 a.m. on May 29, when she looked down and saw a man’s body. He did not respond, and she also saw a gun, so she called police. The man was deceased. Investigations continue.
Police were called to the 2600 block of Hartford Avenue at 6 p.m. on May 28 where two women had gotten into a fight during a soccer game at the park. One reportedly tried to punch the other, but missed, causing a fight to ensue. Several witnesses broke them up. One of the women went home to call police hoping to press charges against the other. The case was handed over to the detective bureau.
Police responded to the 3400 block of Wright Street on May 28 where a burglary had occurred sometime between 1 and 3:30 p.m. that day. The man who lived there said he was gone for a few hours and returned to find both his front and back doors kicked open and a window screen torn out. The house had been rummaged through similar to a previous burglary on Capitol Avenue, police reported. A $1,000 flat screen TV, a $150 Xbox and a $1,500 Macbook laptop were stolen. CV
