For the reporting period of Monday, February 17th - Sunday, February 23rd, CPD officers responded to 490 calls for service including 20 automobile accidents and 30 calls to assist the Fire Department. Among those calls were the following incidents:

Monday afternoon a former employee of a Clayton restaurant reported she had been assaulted by a co-worker last month after she refused his advances. Investigation is ongoing.

Office staff at a company in the central business district contacted CPD Tuesday morning when they discovered a signed St. Louis Blues jersey was stolen from a conference room.

Tuesday afternoon, a verbal argument during a custody hearing escalated into a physical assault. The aggressor was arrested for domestic violence & an unrelated warrant through another agency.

A woman reported parking her vehicle in the 6300 block of Northwood Wednesday morning only to discover Wednesday evening that it had been stolen. She believes a key fob may have been left inside the vehicle. The area is under surveillance by security cameras & investigation is ongoing. SLMPD recovered the vehicle in their jurisdiction late Wednesday night.

A traffic stop in the area of Clayton Rd. & DeMun Wednesday night resulted in the arrest of the driver for DWI.

Early Saturday morning, officers stood by to keep the peace as staff at the Clayton Plaza Hotel escorted a female from the property. The woman had been banned from the hotel years ago when it operated under a different name. At the request of current management, the woman was again informed she was prohibited from returning.

A woman reported inadvertently leaving her purse behind at a restaurant in the central business district early Sunday morning. She returned to the business a short time later & discovered someone had taken her purse & its contents. Investigation is ongoing.

Lastly, we would like to thank the University City Police Department with their assistance over the weekend. Late Friday night, U. City PD contacted the CPD after arresting a burglary suspect in the 500 block of N. Central. They reported the suspect was in possession of several items that were not related to their investigation. Officers checked the area & a short time later it was discovered a residence in the 300 block of N. Bemiston had also been burglarized. Taken from the home were several items of value which U. City PD officers confirmed were in possession of their suspect at the time of his arrest. The suspect was identified as Stanley Frenchie (60 years of age).

With the assistance of the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, an arrest warrant was issued Sunday morning for S. Frenchie for two counts each on the felony offenses of Burglary 2nd & stealing over $750. The warrant comes with a $50,000 cash only bond & includes the offenses occurring in both Clayton & University City. S. Frenchie was previously arrested by CPD for burglary & is known to have committed similar offenses in other jurisdictions. If you have any information regarding these cases, please contact the CPD as soon as possible.
