Two of a kind?2/25/2015
Apparently the weekends aren’t always great for the newly famous singer The Weeknd. In Las Vegas on Jan. 3, The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) was hauled off to jail for assault. But he didn’t get in a regular silly bar fight — The Weeknd got in a physical, fist-throwing fight with a police officer. Around 4:20 a.m., he was taken into custody and was bailed out soon after.
I guess what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. Like The Weeknd, Malcolm Lahori was arrested on Jan. 30 for assault as well — only his was domestic. Lahori was taken to the Polk County Jail around 9 p.m. His bail was set at $3,000.

Not so friendly friends
On Feb. 13, authorities responded to a call made by Aldina Sudic regarding a robbery. Sudic reported to police that she was driving and came to a stoplight. While stopped, a man wearing a tan coat and a hat that she knew through mutual friends came up to her car. Upon reaching the car, the man put his hands in his pockets and acted like he had a weapon. He demanded all of the money Sudic had, so she gave him $200. She then ran to a nearby building to an apartment room. Police went to the room where Sudic supposedly hid, and after announcing that they were police, people in the room stopped answering. Sudic was able to get the phone number for the man who stole her money and found he has several warrants out for his arrest.
Blame the hamburglar
Authorities responded to a burglary on Feb. 16 at the home of Kim Wilson. The victim reported that she left her house for a couple hours that day, and when she came home her door was unlocked. She thought it was strange, so she went through her house. Wilson reported that it appeared that someone went through the food in her kitchen and opened a plastic bag in her refrigerator. Victim was adamant about a police report. There are no known suspects.
All for the beer and rock ‘n’ roll
On Feb. 17 police responded to a follow-up burglary call made by Gustavo Perez at his business La Hacienda. Victim reported that on his way to the gym he stopped by the business to check out a burglary from the night before. Upon arrival, he found the door was open and an amplifier was sitting on the ramp on the north side of the business. He entered his business and found that various amplifiers, a soundboard, a flat screen television and an amount of alcohol were missing. There was also a cart on the stage full of cases of beer that the suspects appeared to want to take but didn’t. Perez said he does not have a surveillance system in place. CV
