MPD Daily Significant Calls 09/19/2017 to 09/20/2017

September 20, 2017 9:09 AM

From 5:30 a.m. on 09/19/2017 through 5:30 a.m. on 09/20/2017, MPD received 464 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials. 

Certain calls have recurrent themes in terms of time and labor intensity.  For example, when individuals are taken for an evaluation due to a mental health issue or episodic break, MPD does an extensive collaboration with Journey Mental Health in determining the least restrictive option.  These are always two officer calls and can routinely last between 5-8 hours (or more).  Emergency Detention conveyances are taken to the Winnebago Mental Health Hospital in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  This is a five hour round-trip, including intake, that takes two officers out of our community and creates challenges for us as we attempt to service calls. 


1) NORTH: Weapons Offense – 8:50 a.m.  Officers responded to the 500 block of Northport Drive where the caller reported that her boyfriend had been pistol whipped.  The suspect was described as an AAM in his 20s.  Officers attempted to make contact with the caller and a potential victim but they could not be contacted.  Information/circumstances involving this call were vague.  No further information at this time.   

2) SOUTH: Conveyance Mental Health – 10:11 a.m.  Officers responded to the 700 block of W. Main St for a subject (41 year old AAM) who was threatening others and his behavior was escalating.  The subject was taken into protective custody and conveyed to a local hospital for an emergency detention/mental health evaluation. 

3) NORTH: Battery – 10:16 a.m.  Officers responded to E. Bluff where two subjects (sisters) became involved in a physical altercation.  The sisters, both AAF's, are 18 and 17 years of age.  The 18 year old AAF was arrested and conveyed to the jail for battery after her sister sustained injuries during the altercation. 

4) CENTRAL: Disturbance – 10:23 a.m.  Officers responded to a business in the 300 block of W. Gorham for a subject (53 year old AAF) who was refusing to leave after being requested to do so by staff.  Officers responded and assisted in removing the subject form the premises.   Investigation continuing.  

5) EAST: Death Investigation – 11:29 a.m.  Officers responded to Jana Lane to check the welfare of a subject (52 year old WM).  The subject was found deceased.  The Medical Examiner responded to the scene.  Death appears to be medically related with no concerns observed.          

6) SOUTH: Conveyance Mental Health – 1:32 p.m.  Officers responded to the 800 block of W. Olin Ave for a subject (27 year old WM) who was threatening suicide by cop and made other threatening statements.  The subject was previously at a local hospital and left against medical advice.  The subject was located by officers and transported to Journey Mental Health for an evaluation. The subject was then transported to a different hospital for treatment.  Investigation continuing. 

7) NORTH: Conveyance Mental Health – 1:43 p.m.  Officers responded to the 2200 block of E. Washington Avenue for a subject (15 year old HM) who was having a mental health crisis.  The subject was transported to a local hospital for an evaluation and an emergency detention was found to be necessary.  Subject was transported to Winnebago by two MPD officers at approximately 8:15 p.m.. 

8) CENTRAL: Sexual Assault – 3:05 p.m.  Officers responded to a local hospital to take a report of a sexual assault of a victim (21 year old WF).  Investigation continuing. 

9) NORTH: Child Abuse – 5:00 p.m.  Officers responded to Vera Court where a victim (14 year old AAM) reported being physically abused by his father/suspect (46 year old AAM).  The suspect would not answer the door/phone.  Child Protective Services plugged in.  Victim is safe with his mother.  There is probable cause for the arrest of the suspect (physical abuse to a child).

10) EAST: Drug Incident Overdose – 5:26 p.m.  Officers responded to Wintergreen Drive for a subject (63 year old WM) who was having an overdose.  MFD administered Naloxone.  The subject was transported to a local hospital and was cited for the possession of narcotics. 

11) EAST: Assist EMS/Fire – 5:51 p.m.  Officers responded to the 100 block of S. Marquette Street to assist MFD with a home/vehicle fire.  Officers assisted with scene security and traffic direction.  Lots of damage to the residence, but nothing suspicious at this time. 

12) EAST: Child Abuse – 7:17 p.m.  Officers responded to Topaz Lane where a juvenile (12 year old AAF) reported being physically abused by her mother.  Investigation reveals that the juvenile was not happy with a consequence her mother was handing down to her.  No signs of physical abuse.  Child Protective Services plugged in.  No charges were substantiated. Arrangements were made for the juvenile to go stay with another family member for the evening.

13) WEST: Domestic Disturbance – 10:52 p.m.  Officers responded to the 500 block of D'Onofrio Drive for a physical disturbance between a victim (45 year old WM) and a suspect (43 year old WF).  This was the third time officers were called to this residence on this date.  The suspect was ultimately arrested and charged with battery as the victim sustained injuries. 

14) SOUTH: Adult Arrested Person – 11:00 p.m.  Officers responded to the area of Fish Hatchery Rd/Badger Rd for a report of a wanted subject being present near that location.  The subject/suspect (38 year old  AAF) was located and it was confirmed that she had active warrants so she was taken into custody.  The suspect received additional charges as heroin and drug paraphernalia was located on her during a search incident to arrest. 

15) SOUTH: Conveyance Mental Health – 2:51 a.m.  Officers responded to a local hospital for a subject (52 year old AAM) who was in need of an emergency detention.  The subject was conveyed to Winnebago by two MPD officers. The officers arrived at Winnebago at approximately 6:15 a.m.
