VACANT HOUSE PARTY
The caller informed police on April 23, at 11:30 a.m., that an unknown man had forced his way into a home that was being remodeled at the 1300 block of Fifth Street. No one was currently living in the home, but they found an empty bottle of whiskey and the unknown person’s coat. The caller said he believes the man had been living in his house.
DON’T GET IN A CAR WITH STRANGERS
An 18-year-old woman told police she asked a guy she’d just met for a ride home around 7 p.m. on April 23. During the ride, the two started arguing to the point where the man punched her in the face. But the “fight blew over,” so she invited him to stay the night. The next day he took her to pick up her 22-year-old male friend, and after the friend was with them, the man refused to let them out of the car. He locked all the doors and kept driving. Eventually they were able to escape and run to a nearby house to call police.
Four days after an April 20 robbery, the victim went to the police station and said had he learned of a house party through Facebook but didn’t know who had posted it. He arrived at the party at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Jefferson alone around 3:30 a.m., and about 25 people he didn’t know were there. A man asked him, “What cha on?” Then about eight of the man’s friends attacked him. They went through his pockets and pointed a gun to his cheek. People said, “Don’t kill him, don’t kill him.” Three gunshots went off from the house, and everyone ran away. The victim went to the hospital for a broken jaw. They took his mother’s keys, his food stamp card and $100. CV
