Police Weekly Incident Report: July 30 – August 5, 2018
On Monday, July 30, a report was taken for three unlocked cars that were rummaged through on the 6400 block of Alamo. Only change was missing from one of the vehicles. The incidents occurred during the overnight hours.
On Monday at 3:15 pm, a purple girl’s bicycle was stolen from the outside of Walgreens.
On Tuesday morning, a report was taken for two unlocked cars that were rummaged through during the overnight hours on the 8100 block of Stratford. Property was taken from one of the vehicles.
On Tuesday at 8:10 pm, a shoplifting was reported at Walgreens. On Wednesday at 4:38 am, a resident in Wydown Forest reported seeing a male suspect checking door handles on cars. The responding officers could not locate the suspect. Later that day reports were taken for several unlocked cars in Wydown Forest that were rummaged through. Two of the vehicles were missing property.
On Friday at 12:19 pm, officers responded to IHOP for a disturbance call. A husband and wife couple reported being harassed by a large group in the restaurant. Responding officers restored order and kept the peace as the parties left the business.
On Saturday at 1:45 pm, officers responded to Shaw Park for a disturbance call. A male subject collecting signatures for a petition became hostile and was disrupting a planned event in one of the pavilions. He bumped chests with the event’s organizer when he was asked to leave. The subject was then uncooperative with the responding officers. He was arrested and charged with assault and failure to comply with a lawful order.
On Sunday at 4:15 pm, officers responded to Straub’s for a panhandler using threatening language toward a customer on the parking lot. This was called in by a third party. The panhandler and the customer left in their vehicles prior to the arrival of the officers. On a related note, we have received several complaints recently about aggressive panhandlers in the Central Business District. Please call us with a detailed description if you encounter one. The panhandlers don’t beg in the presence of officers, so we usually don’t know about the activity until it’s reported to us. There is an ordinance against begging in the City of Clayton; we just need help with identifying those involved.
During this reporting period, the Clayton PD responded to 439 calls for service, including 16 automobile accidents and 30 calls to assist the Fire Department.
