Thin red line
On June 22, at around 1 a.m., an officer was dispatched to Lutheran Hospital to investigate a reported stabbing incident where the victim had driven himself to the hospital for treatment. Upon arrival, the officer noticed the victim’s truck was parked at the hospital’s main entrance and blood was in the inside of the vehicle and also formed a red trail leading into the hospital. As the officer entered the emergency room, he noticed that the victim was covered in blood and was combative and uncooperative with the nursing staff. He had to be restrained from banging his fist and head as nurses applied direct pressure to the right side of his forehead. The officer was unable to get the victim’s statement, but he was notified that the victim had written a note at the check-in desk stating “my wife did this to me no throw in jail.”
At that time, other patrol units arrived to the house where the incident allegedly occurred. As officers were checking the scene, they were told by hospital staff that the victim had a severe laceration above the right eyebrow that had severed an artery. The staff described the wound as “deep,” and it appeared to be about an inch long. The officers at the scene found the victim’s wife and arrested her for willful injury causing a serious injury and domestic assault with a weapon.
On June 18, shortly before 2:34 a.m., officers were patrolling the south side near Indianola Avenue and smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from a large group of people gathered around several cars in the parking lot at The W Ultra Lounge and Grill. As patrol cars pulled in, three males started walking away from the group. An officer exited his patrol vehicle and ordered them to stop, but the trio began running away instead. One of the males was then tackled by another officer, and police were able to gain control of the suspect and he was placed in handcuffs. A loaded .22 revolver was found in his pocket, along with a baggie containing 14 additional rounds of ammunition. While gaining control of the suspect, one officer suffered multiple abrasions to his head and left shoulder. The suspect had multiple abrasions to his temple area and elbows but refused treatment. The Identification Section took control of the firearm and took photographs of the combatants. CV
