MPD Significant Calls for Service 10/12/2018 to 10/13/2018

October 13, 2018 11:15 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 10/12/2018 through 6:00 a.m. on 10/13/2018, MPD received 499 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 499 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (100), East (85), Midtown (83), North (63), South (53), West (72), and Other (43).  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) SOUTH: Adult Arrested Person – 3:21 a.m.  Officers responded to the 1000 block of W. Badger Rd for a 911 disconnect call with sounds of a disturbance.  The victim (54-year-old AAF) and suspect (33-year-old AAF) were contacted.  Investigation revealed that a disturbance took place and a knife was involved.  The victim was injured by the knife but refused medical attention.  The suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct while armed, criminal damage to property, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful trespassing.  * 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) NORTH: Residential Burglary – 4:32 a.m.  Officers responded to a north side residence for a residential burglary.  Forced entry was made to the home and items were stolen from the home.  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.
