The information provided below is about some of the calls officers responded to over the last twenty-four (24) hours. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered from those in the field who were actively working the cases. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as the investigation unfolds.

From 6:00 a.m. on 04/03/2023 through 6:00 a.m. on 04/04/2023, MPD received 397 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 (53), East (95), Midtown (52), North (87), South (32), West (51), and Other (27). "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 1:02am to 2:00am due to calls for service.


WEST: Death Investigation – 8:47 am.  Officers responded to a residence where a family member discovered a 78-year-old woman deceased.  Nothing suspicious on scene.

The victim reported to dispatch that the 31-year-old male suspect had punched her, taken her phone and was armed with a knife.  Officers located the suspect, who had a pair of scissors, and took him into custody.  Once in contact with officers, the victim was uncooperative, thus officers were unable to establish probable cause related to the domestic disturbance.  The suspect was charged with resisting and obstructing.
