MPD Daily Significant Calls 10/03/2018 to 10/04/2018

October 4, 2018 8:18 AM

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 6:00 a.m. on 10/03/2018 through 6:00 a.m. on 10/04/2018, MPD received 527 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 527 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (94), East (89), Midtown (82), North (85), South (52), West (78), and Other (47).  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". 

**Priority only calls from 5:35pm-6:25pm due to calls for service.

1) EAST: Drug Incident Overdose – 5:55 a.m.  Officers responded to the park-and-ride on Collins Court for a subject (31-year-old WM) experiencing an overdose.  MPD administered Naloxone and CCR to the subject.  The subject was conveyed to a local hospital.  No evidence of drug use located.  No charges have been substantiated at this time. Investigation continuing.    * This was a late call that did not make the previous 24-hour cycle call notes due to officers being involved at the scene and reports from the field were not yet typed.  

2) WEST: Mental Health Conveyance – 7:40 a.m.  Officers responded to Strathmore Lane for a subject running into traffic and making threats.  The subject (31-year-old WF) was contacted, taken into protective custody and conveyed to a local hospital.  The subject will ultimately be conveyed to Winnebago under an emergency detention order.  Investigation continuing.

5) EAST: Stolen Auto – 12:03 p.m.  OnStar contacted dispatch to report that they were tracking a stolen auto around Turner Ave/Hob St.  The vehicle was slowed down by OnStar and it eventually stopped on the Beltline Ramp at Rimrock Road.  Two AAM juveniles fled on foot and have not been located.  The vehicle's registered owner was contacted.  Investigation continuing. 

6) WEST: Domestic Disturbance – 12:33 p.m.  Officers met with a victim (37-year-old UF) at the West District who reported a domestic disturbance that occurred the night before.  The victim reported that the suspect (42-year-old UM) grabbed her by the hair and threw her to the ground during an argument.  The suspect was located and arrested for domestic battery and domestic disorderly conduct. 

7) EAST: Information/Disturbance – 12:59 p.m.  Officers responded to concerns over a potential fight at La Follette High School due to ongoing disputes between two groups of female juveniles.  One of the groups was contacted by officers.  No charges have been substantiated at this time.  Investigation continuing.    

8) WEST: Disturbance – 8:17 p.m.   Officers responded to Russett Rd for a report of a disturbance.  Contact was made with a subject who reported being pepper-sprayed during a fight.  Officers attempted to talk with other involved subjects but were unsuccessful.  About 30 minutes later, officers on foot in the area came upon an active disturbance involving the same subjects (22-year-old AAM and 47-year-old AAM suspects).  The suspects were not cooperative with officers.  The 22-year-old suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting.  The 47-year-old suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct. 

9) SOUTH: Aggravated/Substantial Battery – 8:30 p.m.  Officers responded to Goodman Library reference a male subject (61-year-old WM) in the bathroom bleeding and reporting that he had been assaulted.  The suspect was described as an AAM.  The victim sustained visible injuries and was transported to a local hospital where he required stitches.  Investigation continuing. 

10) CENTRAL: Information/Weapons Offense – 10:43 p.m.  Officers responded to W. Lakelawn Place for a report of two AAMs fighting and that a handgun was involved.  The caller to dispatch hung up and initially did not answer when attempts were made to reconnect.  The caller was ultimately contacted and he met with officers to describe what he saw.  Upon investigating the incident, it was determined that the two men were not actually fighting, but most likely were acquaintances that ran from the area together.  It was not confirmed that either had a handgun.  No concerns for public safety identified.  Incident Report on MPD's website completed. 

11) WEST: Missing Adult – 11:19 p.m.  Officers responded to a report of a missing autistic adult (21-year-old WF).  Areas checked.  Phone ping conducted.  The subject was entered as missing in the appropriate databases.  There was some information indicating that the subject may have been picked up by other family members out-of-state.  Attempts were being made to make contact with the out-of-state family members.  Investigation continuing.
