September 30, 2017 9:59 AM

From 5:30 a.m. on 09/29/2017 through 5:30 a.m. on 09/30/2017, MPD received 520 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials. 

1) EAST: Search Warrant Executed  – 5:19 a.m. Special Crimes Unit (SCU) investigating a sexual assault of a child executed a search warrant this morning on Bultman as the subject was leaving for work.  Once the subject was detained, a search of the home was completed by detectives without incident.  Investigation continuing. 

2) CENTRAL:  OMVWI Arrest/Intoxicated Driver – 7:30 a.m.  Officers were dispatched to a two vehicle accident on East Washington Avenue at Baldwin Street.  The caller stated that one of the drivers was slurring their speech and likely intoxicated.  Officers conducting the investigation concluded the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident (21 year old WF) was indeed intoxicated.  She was arrested and processed for first offense OWI.

3) NORTH:  Fight Call – 12:10 p.m.  During the lunch period at East High School, a large group of students and non-students went outside and fought in the street.  As the Educational Resource Officer (ERO) intervened, the group split into smaller factions but quickly came back together again, which resulted in additional physical fights.  These episodic fights continued for approximately 30 minutes with officers going from one spot and one group to another trying to stop the fighting.  The radio traffic on MPD air was confined exclusively to emergency traffic only for a full 7 minutes and a total of 11 officers were needed to assist in abating the various disturbances.  Ultimately, there were numerous citations and one physical arrest. 

4) EAST:  Drug Incident Overdose – 2:50 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to the Dean Clinic on South Stoughton Road for an overdose. Officers arrived to find the subject being assisted by clinic staff.  The suspect (30 year old WM) received large doses of naloxone before he became alert.  He was taken to the hospital for treatment and then to jail for possession of paraphernalia and possession of heroin. The suspect was overheard talking about how this was the 19th time he has overdosed.  A second subject (23 year old WM) who was in the car was also arrested for theft (stole another occupant's suboxone), possession of a prescription drug not his own and bail jumping.  This suspect was also taken to the jail.

5) CENTRAL:  Damage to Property/Graffiti – 4:47 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to the area of East Johnson Street and North Blair Street.  The caller reported to Dispatch that there was pejorative graffiti scratched onto the sidewalk.  Investigation reflected that an 8 year old child was responsible.  The officer was able to make contact with the parent and was advised that there were other concerning behaviors which were recently being manifested by the child. The officer relayed these concerns to the child's school counselor and left the scene with both parent and child cleaning the sidewalk. 

6) SOUTH: Drug Incident Overdose – 5:11 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to Station 6 (825 West Badger Road) for an overdose. Officers arrived to find the suspect (58 year old AAM) being treated by EMS.  The suspect was given naloxone by paramedics and transported to the hospital.  The suspect is on parole for manufacture/deliver heroin.  At the hospital, officers learn that he is going to be observed for at least 4 hours. A request to be notified was denied by hospital staff due to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  Officers left the suspect at the hospital and checked back a couple of hours later whereupon he was taken into custody and conveyed to the jail.

7) NORTH: Stalking Complaint – 6:08 p.m.  A victim (34 year old WM) reported that a former employee (fired today) was seen driving by the victim's home on Ilene Lane and parking in the same block. The suspect (50 year old WM) is on parole for stalking and well known to officers.  Officers were able to locate the suspect and he had no logical reason for being in the area.  Officers contacted Probation and Parole and a hold was placed.  The suspect was then arrested and conveyed to jail.

8) CENTRAL: Sex Offense Miscellaneous – 8:30 p.m.  Officers were standing in a parking lot on State Street when they were approached by the victim (38 year old AM), who wanted to report a sexual assault that occurred last night in the area of West Main and State Street. The victim reported that he was walking downtown and an intoxicated suspect (20 to 30 year old WM) was following him. The victim said he was helping the subject get home when the subject started groping him and demanding sex. The victim believes he knows where this suspect resides.  Video is being checked.  Investigation continuing. 

9) CENTRAL: Weapons Offense/Shots Fired – 9:52 p.m.  Numerous callers reported hearing multiple shots being fired in the area of North Blount Street.  Officers respond and are unable to locate anything evidentiary.  Heavy foot traffic in the area at the time as well, with no one else spoken to having heard the shots.  Unable to determine the location or origin of the "shots fired" sounds.

10) SOUTH: Conveyance – 10:46 p.m.  A subject (54 year old WM) was transported from a Grant County hospital to a Madison hospital.  The subject was suicidal, combative and required restraints at the hospital.  Dane County Mental Health (DCMH) was plugged in and determined the individual needed to be ED'd, so MPD became involved as Grant County Mental Health would not come to Dane County for evaluation (confirmed by DCMH).  MPD assisted with transport and ED to Winnebago.

11)  WEST: Weapons Offense Shots Fired – 1:10 a.m.  A single caller heard what they thought were 5 gunshots near 2400 Seminole Highway, followed approximately 10 minutes later by another single shot.  Officers were directed towards the arboretum area, but were unable to find any evidence of shots being fired.  Other jurisdiction officers stated that they had reports of construction sounds in the area being mistaken for gunshots, but it is unconfirmed whether this was the source of this incident.  No casings, injuries, or damage located and still unknown what the source of this noise was.

12) CENTRAL: Battery – 1:51 a.m.  A 24 year old WF was walking home in the 600 block of North Carroll Street when a WM suspect rushed up behind her and grabbed her from behind around her neck.  Female victim screamed and the male let her go and fled.  The only description is a WM, brown hair and glasses with jeans.  Investigator responded for potential DNA, and area was thoroughly checked.  City cameras will also be checked.  Investigation continuing. 

13) NORTH: Weapons Offense/Shots Fired – 2:10 a.m.  Numerous callers reported hearing multiple gunshots, placing them anywhere between Loftsgordon Avenue to Kennedy Heights, to Sherman Avenue.  Officers attempted to locate the origin of the shots but were unable to find anything of evidentiary value.  Many people were contacted but officers could not narrow down a probable area to focus the search.

14) WEST: Weapons Offense/Shots Fired – 4:58 a.m.  Multiple callers reported hearing approximately 6-9 gunshots possibly near Hempstead/Hammersley/Loreen area.  All west district officers responded and checked the area for damage/evidence/injuries.  Callers were contacted in an attempt to narrow down the focus of the search, and officers canvassed the area on foot.  Nothing of evidentiary value was located at this time.
