WRONG ONE WIELDING THE BELT
Police were dispatched to an apartment at the 200 block of Dickman regarding a domestic dispute, where a 13-year-old boy had become physically violent toward the family. He was tearing up the home because he was upset about being suspended from school. He slapped, punched and kicked his 15-year-old sister. An adult intervened and received several punches as a result and was hit by the belt the boy was swinging. The boy threatened to blow up the apartment, and the family said they were concerned with his recent interest in explosives. He was arrested after confessing to everything and even bragging about his experience with bomb-making and gang activity.
CONVERTIBLES ARE NOT INCOGNITO
Police responded to Menards, 6000 S.E. 14th St., at 10:30 a.m. regarding a theft. The loss prevention employee said she saw the suspect pocket two electrical breakers ($279.78 apiece) and head for the front door without paying. He pushed her out of the way and fled in a black convertible, which police later found. He was arrested.
HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A WOMAN BEHIND THE WHEEL
Police were called to Methodist Hospital at 1 a.m. after the victim reported an assault by his ex-girlfriend had occurred at his home. He said she’d been texting him a lot lately and had threatened to come to his house and break out his windows that night. When he spotted her in his back alley, he walked toward her. That’s when she drove forward and pinned him between her car and a parked car. She took off, and he called for help. He did not have any broken bones. No arrests were made. CV
