A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND
A woman walked into Christopher’s Jewelers just after 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 18. She asked to try on an $11,000 diamond ring, which she was still wearing when she asked to also see a pair of earrings. But when the clerk refused to get the earrings until the woman gave back the ring, the woman took off running out the door still wearing the ring. The clerk and another employee chased her and caught up to her behind the store. They managed to get the ring from her finger. Then the suspect allegedly kicked the clerk in the knee and “calmly walked away.” Police were called, and investigators confiscated the video surveillance tapes. They continue to search for the alleged suspect.
CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON
A couple was living with a friend at the 3200 block of Third Street. The friend came home around 11 p.m. angry about the couple “fighting all the time” and wanted them to move out. He was allegedly armed with two hydraulic jack handles, which he swung at the male half. The couple fled the house, but the alleged suspect then traded in the jack handles for a sword. By the time police arrived, the male victim was armed with a rake “confronting” the suspect who reportedly had came at him with a baseball bat before ditching the bat for a butcher knife. Both were detained at gunpoint and handcuffed.
Police were called to the 2400 block of Welbeck regarding a fight between two roommates. The alleged suspect was leaving for work at a night shift. When she went to get her pre-made lunch, she reportedly found her roommate eating it. They started arguing, and she allegedly slapped him in the face. A third roommate broke up the fight. The male victim called police to have the alleged suspect arrested since “she has a history of physical abuse.” So she was arrested and charged with simple assault. CV
