THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOMECOMING
Police responded to the 3000 block of East 14th Street around 2:30 p.m., where a teenaged female reported an assault by her mom that had occurred the previous night inside their home. She said the fight started when her mother prohibited her from attending the high school homecoming dance and escalated when her mother grabbed her by the hair and slammed her head and face into the walls and doors. She showed police several scratch marks on her body, but the mother was not home at the time of the report.
Police were called to the 1400 block of Mulberry regarding an assault around 9:30 a.m. The victim stated she was in line for breakfast at the homeless shelter, when the suspect cut in line. The suspect threatened to pour hot coffee on the victim and then hit the victim in the head with a coffee cup.
USING YOUR HEAD ISN’T ALWAYS GOOD
Police were dispatched to Hiatt Middle School on a report of a fight around 3:44 p.m., where a student reportedly was quarrelling with a trespassing nonstudent. Police were giving the student a ride home, when another man began yelling, “Why are you arresting my friend?” School officials said he had trespassed several times. The suspect continued to taunt police, so he was warned that he would be arrested for trespassing and harassment if he did not stop. The suspect then head-butted the officer and then began kicking and choking him. Another suspect joined in, tackling the officer to the ground. With some pepper spray and the assistance of another officer, both suspects were arrested. CV
