MPD Notable Calls 09/28/2020 to 09/29/2020

September 29, 2020 7:38 AM


The information provided below about some of the calls officers responded to 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 09/28/2020 through 6:00 a.m. on 09/29/2020, MPD received 267 calls for service.  This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials.  A breakdown of the calls for service per district is as follows: Central (45), East (66), Midtown (32), North (46), South (28), West (36), and Other (14).  "Other" is used for calls that either do not have a sector or the sector is not in the City.  This would be used in the case of one of our officers assisting another law enforcement agency.  



Priority calls only from 5:01 p.m. to 11:14 p.m. due to calls for service. 

CENTRAL: Check Person – 9:53 a.m.  Officers responded to check the welfare of a possible suicidal subject.  The subject was conveyed to a local hospital for an evaluation.  Journey Mental Health plugged in.  The subject was voluntarily admitted.

NORTH: Adult Arrested Person – 12:05 p.m.  Officers took a subject/suspect (26-year-old male) into custody without incident on a probation/parole hold.  The suspect was transported to jail.     

EAST: Juvenile Arrest – 3:36 p.m.  Officers responded to a residence for a disturbance involving a male juvenile.  A safety plan was initially developed but the juvenile came resistive.  The juvenile was ultimately arrested and transported to the Juvenile Reception Center on charges of resisting and criminal damage to property.

NORTH: Weapons Offense – 3:44 p.m.  A road rage incident occurred and the suspect (19-year-old male) pointed a handgun at the victims (two male subjects).  The suspect vehicle was located by officers unoccupied.  The suspect was identified and probable cause was developed to charge him, once he is located.  Investigation continuing.
