From 5:30 a.m. on 12/30/2017 through 5:30 a.m. on 12/31/2017, MPD received 337 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.

1) WEST: Weapons Offense – 9:40 a.m.  Officers were initially called to the 5600 block of Raymond Rd reference "someone with a gun trying to steal someone's car."  After further investigation, the contacts were juveniles just playing around.  No weapon located. 

2) WEST: Sexual Assault of a Child – 12:36 p.m.  Father and his 15 year old son showed up at the West District Station to report that the juvenile had been molesting their 8 year old daughter. The daughter was taken to the hospital by her mother.  Investigation continuing.  CPS notified.

3) WEST: OMVWI Arrest – 2:16 p.m.  Officers located a woman slumped over in her vehicle in the 6700 block of Schroeder Rd.  Upon contact with the woman (37 year old NAF), officers see open intoxicants in the vehicle and notice that the woman appears to be under the influence.  After failing field sobriety tests, the woman was arrested and charged with her 5th OMVWI offense.  The woman was taken to jail. 

4) NORTH: OMVWI Arrest – 3:44 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to the 3600 block of Portage Rd reference a hit and run.  A man who was looking out of his window witnessed a car crash into his neighbor's parked car.  After the vehicle struck the parked car, it went off the road into a field where it got stuck.  The neighbor watched the driver (26 year old HM) get out of the car and speak with the owner of the parked vehicle.  The owner of the car walked back to his residence (presumably to get paperwork or call the police) and as soon as he was in his house, the suspect walked away.  The neighbor followed the suspect and officers picked the suspect up a couple of blocks from the scene.  The suspect was arrested for OMVWI 3rd offense and cited for failure to maintain control.

5) WEST: OMVWI Arrest – 5:45 p.m.  Two MPD officers were in the 6400 block of Bettys Ln when a vehicle came down the street with no headlights on.  One officer attempted to get the car to stop by shining his flashlight at the driver, however the driver did not stop.  The other officer was able to contact the driver (43 year old AAF) when she exited the vehicle in the 1400 block of Theresa Ter.  There were two children in the vehicle under 4 years old.  The suspect was arrested for OMVWI 5th offense with passengers under 16 years old, operating after revocation, and operating a vehicle without headlights.  She was taken to jail. 

6) CENTRAL: Disturbance - 6:00 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to the 300 block of E Main St reference a man harassing a parking enforcement officer (PEO).  This subject (38 year old WM) subsequently created another disturbance with officers in the 600 block of E Washington Ave which led to him being taken into custody for disorderly conduct, resisting, and three counts of bail jumping. 

7) NORTH: Stolen Auto – 6:26 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to the 2000 block of Northport Dr reference a stolen vehicle.  The victim, a pizza delivery driver from Dominos, reported that his 2013, white Toyota Corolla was stolen while he delivered a pizza.  Approximately 10 minutes after the call to 911, officers located the vehicle, unoccupied, at 1921 Northport Drive.  The car was returned to the victim.  No suspect information.

8) EAST: Drug Incident-Overdose – 6:37 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to Sargent St reference a possible drug overdose.  Mom came over to her son's residence and found him passed out with drug paraphernalia nearby.  The suspect (27 year old WM) woke up and became agitated when he learned that mom called the police.  He quickly cleaned up, broke the needle and threw it into the trash.  Officers arrived on scene, along with EMS, however the suspect refused medical attention and denied that he had used any drugs, even though he had no good explanation for the needle in his trash can.  The suspect was on probation and his agent decided to place a hold on the suspect and officers transported him to jail. 

9) WEST: Death Investigation – 7:09 p.m.  Officers were dispatched to Highview Dr reference an obvious death.  The victim (76 year old WM) had gone to the hospital the previous night because he was not feeling well and was subsequently discharged at around midnight.  Nothing suspicious in the apartment was noted.  All indications are that this is health-related.  Medical Examiner's office notified.

10) WEST: Disturbance – 11:30 p.m.  MPD officers responded to an apartment complex in the 1000 block of Gilbert Rd for a male passed out in the hallway of one of the buildings.  The passed out subject, a 29 year old WM, was subsequently transported to UW Hospital for a split lip and high level of intoxication.  The victim was very uncooperative and never provided a statement to officers about what happened.  After contacting multiple parties, officers learned that there had been an altercation provoked by the 29 year old subject.  The other half of the conflict remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation throughout.  Investigation continuing.
11) NORTH: Drug Overdose/Death Investigation – 12:51 a.m.  MPD officers responded to Winchester St along with MFD for a death investigation.  Upon arrival, officers found a 35 year old AAM to be unresponsive.  CCR had been begun by the deceased's girlfriend and naloxone was administered by MFD but resuscitation efforts were ineffective.  According to the girlfriend, both she and the deceased have a history of using heroin.  Medical Examiner responded to the scene and autopsy scheduled.  Investigation continuing.

12) NORTH: Accident with Injuries – 2:23 a.m.  MPD responded to a single vehicle, single occupant crash with injuries in the area of westbound Hwy 30 near Fair Oaks Ave.  Upon arrival, officers located a vehicle that had rolled over with a 34 year AAM driver who was unable to free himself.  MFD responded and assisted with extrication.  Driver was subsequently transported to UW Hospital with significant scalp injuries.  Based upon on-scene investigation, it appears that the vehicle had been traveling the wrong way on Hwy 30, specifically eastbound in the westbound lanes.  The vehicle ended up traveling in the ditch, in between the two lanes, and then veered back into the wrong lanes.  It was at that time the vehicle struck a concrete embankment near Fair Oaks which caused it to flip over.  Traffic citations were issued and left with the driver at the hospital.  Investigation continuing.
