2) NORTH: Death Investigation – 10:39 a.m.  Officers were dispatched to Dahle St reference a death investigation.  The decedent (51-year-old WM) was found deceased on his couch by a loved one.  The deceased had chronic health issues.  Medical Examiner on scene. 

3) WEST: Child Neglect – 1:53 p.m.  MPD responded to the Walgreens at 5702 Raymond Rd for a 5-year-old AAF that had walked into the store half-dressed and with no apparent adult supervision.  Officers and staff stood by with the child for over an hour until an adult arrived and indicated that she was the child's grandmother.  Apparently, grandmother and other adults in the home were sleeping when the child let herself out.  Child Protective Services (CPS) was contacted and will initiate an investigation on Monday. 

4) WEST: Adult Arrested Person – 3:09 p.m.  MPD officers responded to the Walgreens at 5702 Raymond Rd to make contact with an employee (29-year-old AAM) who had made some inappropriate overtures and comments to a customer.  The employee was subsequently arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and taken to jail. 

5) NORTH: Juvenile Complaint – 4:31 p.m.  MPD responded to Kennedy Heights for a 10-year-old AAM that was chasing another juvenile with a butcher knife.  When officers arrived, the child had been disarmed by parents.  Given the fact that this child has some mental health issues, Crisis was consulted and the juvenile was ultimately returned to his parents, at the direction of both Crisis and an on-duty social worker. 

6) WEST: Death Investigation – 4:48 p.m.  MPD responded to the 6500 block of Schroeder Rd for a deceased subject.  A 76-year-old WF was found deceased in her apartment by a family member.  Nothing suspicious was noted.  Medical Examiner on scene.

7) WEST: Information – 8:00 p.m.  An off-duty detective, while working West Towne Mall, investigated a retail theft and determined that the suspect was a victim of human trafficking.  Information was obtained about this individual's abuser/trafficker and attempts to locate were initiated.  The retail theft subject/victim was taken to a family member's residence for safety considerations.  MPD is attempting to positively identify the suspect and is in the process of obtaining interventionist help for the retail theft subject/victim of human trafficking. 

8) MIDTOWN: Domestic Disturbance – 9:15 p.m.  Midtown officers were called to a physical domestic in the 4700 block of Jenewein Rd.  Investigating officers learned that the dispute was between sisters.  It was determined that the 29-year-old AAF suspect had battered her younger sister/victim (27-year-old AAF).  The suspect was arrested for domestic battery and taken to jail.

9) SOUTH: Adult Arrested Person – 9:33 p.m.  South officers were called to the 2300 block of Park St for a subject continuously buzzing the front entry door foyer and would not stop the behavior.  Officers arrived and learned from the victim/caller (27-year-old WF) that she used to work with the suspect (18-year-old WM), until the suspect was fired for inappropriateness in the workplace.  The suspect had continued to message the victim and persistently tried to contact her.  Police learned that the suspect had been at the entrance for over an hour, engaging in the door buzzing and refusing to leave.  The suspect was arrested for trespass and the investigating officer issued the suspect a stalking letter, ordering the suspect to cease and desist from all contact. 

10) CENTRAL: Adult Arrested Person – 10:53 p.m.  Central officers were called to Salvation Army (630 E Washington Ave) for a report of a female who may have taken heroin and was in need of medical assistance.  MFD/EMS arrived and transported the 39-year-old WF suspect to a local hospital.  Naloxone was used to revive the suspect, who has a history of heroin usage.  The suspect admitted that she had snorted heroin.  The suspect was medically cleared and had warrants for her arrest.  Once under arrest, the suspect admitted to having more heroin in her belongings.  Heroin was seized and new charges were issued.  The suspect was taken to jail. 

11) WEST: Stolen Auto – 12:51 a.m.  A West officer pulled onto Russett Rd and was alerted by a male that some kids may be in a stolen auto on this street.  The investigating officer followed the car that was pointed out and after a few turns, four juveniles exited the vehicle and fled.  The auto in question had not yet been reported as stolen; but once the investigating officer made contact with the registered owner, it was determined that this car had, in fact, been stolen.  Vehicle was returned to registered owner.  Investigation continuing.

12) WEST: Stolen Auto – 1:02 a.m.  While investigating/recovering the stolen auto noted above, another call was broadcasted as a stolen auto from the Russett Rd area.  Investigators believed it is possible that the same juveniles who had run from the first stolen auto recovery were responsible.  It is believed that another vehicle taken from the 5800 block of Russett Rd had been stolen by the same juveniles who subsequently had a minor crash and ran from this vehicle as well.  Investigation continuing. 

13) WEST: Stolen Auto – 1:53 a.m.  While investigating a series of stolen autos in the West district, officers learned of yet another stolen auto.  This time, the car was taken from the 6400 block of Bettys Ln.  The car had been left running while the owner had gone inside of their residence.  Again, investigation was developed to suggest that the same cadre of juveniles were responsible for taking this auto.  The vehicle from Bettys Ln was entered as stolen and aired to area units.  Investigation continuing. 

14) EAST: Weapons Offense-Shots Fired– 2:00 a.m.  East officers were called to Connections Bar (3737 E Washington Ave) for a report of a bar fight.  Officers contacted two victims, a mother (44-year-old AAF) and her daughter (25-year-old AAF), who reported a very large fight had occurred in the parking lot at bar time, as everyone spilled out into the parking lot.  Both victims reported that they had been battered and that there were several fights that broke out, involving upwards of 30 people.  During this large brawl, an unknown person pulled out a gun and fired one round into the air, causing everyone to flee.  An officer canvassing the scene found one round in the parking lot.  The victim/mother had a swollen eye and cheek, as well as a nose bleed as a result of the fight.  The victim/daughter sustained a chipped tooth as a result of the fight.  Both denied EMS.  Investigation continuing.

15) CITY-WIDE: Sexual Assault Report – 2:42 a.m.  East officers were called to an address on Ohio Ave to take a report of a sexual assault from an 18-year-old WF.  At the time of this writing, the victim is being interviewed at a local hospital.  Investigation continuing.
