BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKIN’
Police were called to the 1300 block of Martin Luther King Parkway around 6:20 p.m. on March 7, where a woman said she was assaulted by a long-time friend. She said she was letting the friend stay with her to give him a break from the shelter. On this day they were drinking together, and the suspect left for a short time. When he returned, he tracked mud all over the carpet. She got upset about the mud, and a fight ensued. He shoved her, so she shoved him back. That’s when he took her to the ground and choked her with his forearm. A female witness punched the suspect in the face to get him off of the victim. He left but was found down the street by police and taken into custody.
Police were called to the 1900 block of Jefferson Avenue on March 6 regarding a drive-by shooting.
