‘IT WAS THE GUY ON THE COUCH’
Police were called to the 1400 block of Delaware Avenue just after 8 p.m. regarding an assault. The victim told police a man punched her in the side of her face and in her head while she was in bed asleep. She said she had gotten up at one point to feed the baby and noticed a man she knew sleeping on her couch. She went back to bed and then was assaulted. She thinks it was the man on the couch who she said does not drink but does use “synthetics.” No arrests were made.
THE GLASS HALF FULL
Cops responded to the 1400 block of Mulberry Street just before 10 p.m. referencing an assault. The victim told police a woman he knows had thrown a cup half-filled with water at him, hitting him in the side. Witnesses attested that the victim had done nothing to provoke her anger and offered police video proof. The suspect said she didn’t remember doing it and asked to be taken to the hospital over jail, but they took her to jail.
A woman called police at 11 a.m. insisting on filing assault charges on a 10-year-old girl in her son’s class. She said her son had come home with scratches and bruises and this was not the first time the girl had been abusive to the boy at Moulton Elementary. Police took the report but did not file charges.
Officers responded to a fire call around 4:30 p.m. at the 1500 block of Fourth Street. A grass fire behind the victim’s residence is presumed to have been started by a juvenile who was named by a neighboring witness who said she saw him bent over lighting the fire and then running off. No charges have yet been filed. CV
