Trespasser

On January 2, 2020, police responded to a report of a suspicious individual in a back yard in the area of Viceroy Cr. at approximately 9:00 am. The visitor was corralled north toward the river by police and animal control officers where we hope he finds the life he’s looking for.

Assault

On January 1, 2020, shortly after 10:00 am, police received a report of a disturbance occurring at a residence where a number of individuals were staying.

Investigation revealed that a 34-year-old female and a 32-year-old female were at odds with one another, and the cause of the disturbance. The 34-year-old suspect assaulted the sister of the 32-year-old suspect. This caused retaliation by the 32-year-old suspect, who struck the 34-year-old suspect. The 34-year-old suspect then grabbed a small hatchet to prevent any further assaults on herself. Nobody was struck with the hatchet, and no medical attention was required for anyone who was assaulted.

Alcohol and drug use are believed to be contributing factors to this disturbance.

Police learned that the 32-year-old suspect was to abide by court orders to abstain from consuming alcohol. She was arrested and will appear in court on February 24, 2020 on charges of Assault and Fail to Comply with Conditions of Undertaking.

Breach of Peace

Not long after dropping the male off, police received a report of an intoxicated male in the 400 block of 13th street shortly after 11:00 pm. The male attended to the residence of a family who did not know him, and asked them for help, as he believed people were after him.

Police discovered it was the same male who was provided a safe place to stay not long before, but that he left for unknown reasons.
