RATHER BE THE HAMMER THAN THE NAIL
Police were called to the 2600 block of Arnold Street at 7:25 p.m. The caller said two men came to his door threatening to beat him up. They pulled on the door and popped off the lock, so he went to the kitchen and came back with a hammer. The suspect fled to a car outside, so the victim pursued and broke out the car window with his hammer. The suspect then got out of the vehicle with a hammer of his own. As soon as he entered the victim’s property, the victim hit the suspect in the face with the hammer. The suspect fled. No charges were filed.
THE CHARM BANDIT
A woman called police just before 9 p.m. to the 400 block of East McKinley Avenue saying she had just been robbed at gunpoint. She said she walked up to her front door when a man in a ski mask approached her demanding money. She said she had no money but offered him her jewelry. She gave him her wedding ring, earrings, including one that was gold and one that was silver with two dolphins, and necklace with two charms that said “Big Sis” and “I Love Mom.” Investigations continue.
THE BLOW WAS BIGGER THAN THE SCORE
Police were dispatched to Kum and Go, 2110 Guthrie Ave., just before midnight referencing a first-degree robbery. The clerk said the suspect entered the store with a gun in his hand and hit him in the face with the barrel of the gun, demanding money from the register. The clerk gave him a total of $332 in cash.
