He Shouted, She Cried.
Tuesday, November 17, 11:34 p.m. Officers went to the 1500 block of 11th Street to investigate a domestic dispute. When they arrived, they, by way of acute aural sensitivity, detected two distinct sounds. The first was of a male voice shouting, and the second was a female voice crying. One of the officers then visually identified the act of two people involved in a physical altercation. Upon more precise focus, the officer observed the male grab a phone from the female, and throw it off the balcony of the residence that all of this was taking place in. Officers entered this residence and began to communicate verbally with these two persons. The woman stated that the man had become agitated, and firstly verbally, and then physically assaulted her; on top of that he had attempted to prevent her from calling the cops by damaging a “land-line” phone, and throwing the cell phone over the balcony. The cops thus arrested a black male (the man in this story), aged 31, for inflicting injury on a cohabitant, damaging phone line in the prevention of calling for assistance, vandalism, and probation violation. His bail is $50,000.00.
Wednesday, November 18, at 3 p.m., Officers received a radio call concerning an assault with a deadly weapon occurring in the 1000 block of 22nd Street, so they went there to investigate. Here’s what they discovered: A woman (suspect) had gone to her mother’s (victim) residence and grabbed her purse. The mother and daughter then became involved in a tug of family war over the purse. The daughter then hit the mother several times in the face, but the mother kept a grip on that purse, and so the daughter turned her anger to a mixing bowl, picked it up, and threw it at the mother. If that wasn’t enough, the daughter upped the ante by grabbing a knife, and threatened to kill the mother. The mother ran to another room and locked herself in, at which point the daughter left the building. The officers went off and found the daughter a short distance away, and arrested this white, 23 year old female for assault with a deadly weapon, and threats. Her bail was set at $50,000.
Friday, November 20, 4:16 p.m. Officers went to the 1100 block of San Vicente Boulevard because they heard about a guy taking mail that wasn’t his. The officers arrived at the scene and posted themselves in a position that gave them a field of view that effectively enveloped the area in question, whereupon they observed a man matching the description of the suspect. They approached this man, and addressed him by asking his permission to conduct a search of his personage. They must have stamped their authority on this guy, because he agreed, and the cops subsequently discovered items upon him that they suspected were not his own. The police officers conducted further investigations that suggested that these items, an ipod, a charger, and earphones, had been taken during an auto burglary in Marina del Rey, earlier that day. The suspect, a male black, aged 28, from North Hollywood, was delivered to jail, and charged with possession of stolen property and probation violation. His bail was set at $20,000.00.
Friday, November 20. Officers conducted a drivers license, and DUI checkpoint, at Lincoln Boulevard and Michigan Avenue, in order to enforce the law, and improve safety on the roads. The results were as follows: 1,667 vehicles entered the checkpoint. 364 vehicles were checked. Six vehicles were impounded for unlicensed/suspended driver’s license. Six misdemeanor citations of various kinds were issued, as were two citations for possession of marijuana as well as four traffic related citations. Apparently however, there were no DUI’s. The races, ages, and genders of those booked for the above offences were not available to The Mirror at the time of going to press.
