Early Sunday morning at about 1:18 a.m., officers responded to a disturbance in progress outside a residence in the 800 block of North LaSalle Drive. APD dispatch had received notification that a fight was occurring and that the calling party heard screaming. Officer Cory Davis contacted a few male subjects, including a female subject, at the incident location. At one point during this preliminary investigation, the female subject struck a uniformed officer in the chin with her hand. The investigation further revealed that the female subject was extremely intoxicated and the hand that she used to assault the officer was covered in blood from a cut she received by breaking a window. The female subject was arrested for felony harassment of a public servant. No other arrests were made.
Sunday afternoon at about 2:25, Officers Jesus Villarreal and Jerame Montgomery responded to a shoplifter call at a business in the 900 block of North Willis Street. APD dispatch had received notification from a store employee that an older male subject had attempted to steal two packages of meat and a patron's purse. The employee stated that the subject was detained in one of their offices. Officers arrived and conducted their preliminary investigation which revealed that the male subject had concealed a patron's purse, along with two packages of New York strip valued at approximately $33.00, before leaving the store. The subject was then contacted by store employees in the parking lot. Officer Villarreal learned that the patron's purse was recovered from the male subject and returned to the victim. The purse had allegedly been stolen from the victim's shopping cart. The owner of the purse left the scene before officers arrived and was not identified. A records check revealed that the subject had several prior theft convictions. The investigation also revealed that the subject was intoxicated and left the store without paying for the steaks. The steaks were recovered and the subject was arrested for felony theft (based on previous theft convictions) and for public intoxication.
