The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.
From 5:00 a.m. on 06/24/2018 through 5:00 a.m. on 06/25/2018, MPD received 424 calls for service. This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials. For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown. MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
To further break down the 424 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (70), East (85), Midtown (60), North (73), South (59), West (50), and Other (27). Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City. For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other."
1) CENTRAL: Assist EMS/Fire – 6/21 at 7:54pm. An update to an earlier reported call; a subject who was conveyed to the hospital following a medical emergency has passed away.
2) EAST: Information/Domestic Disturbance – 6/24 at 5:07am. An update to an earlier reported call; the victim (27-year-old HF) was in a disturbance with the suspect (37-year-old HM), with whom she used to be in a relationship, near North of the Bayou on Atlas Ave. At one point, the suspect forced the victim to get into his vehicle by making threats, and once in the vehicle, the suspect began driving recklessly and making further threats to harm the victim, showing the victim a knife at one point. The suspect ultimately lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a ditch, whereupon the victim was able to get away and contact police. The suspect was contacted by another police department and arrested for domestic false imprisonment and disorderly conduct while armed.

Probable cause was developed to arrest the suspect on a charge of substantial battery. Investigation continuing.
