The audacity of grope 

An officer on patrol was flagged down by a woman around 10 on a Friday night. She told police that a man walked by and grabbed her buttocks while she was standing on the sidewalk.

She told him never to do that again, to which he responded by mumbling incoherently. The officer went to find the man and speak with him. The officer found the man in Franklin Square trying to approach another female, who was obviously trying to avoid him. The officer asked him to step away from her and answer a few questions. The man had a very difficult time standing up and also took several minutes to get his ID out of his wallet. At first he handed over a bunch of random pieces of paper before finding his ID. He smelled strongly of alcohol. The officer asked the man about the walk–by groping and he denied it. His information was run through the system and he was let go. Ten minutes later, officers were dispatched to Broughton Street for what they believed would be a separate incident. They found the same guy, standing near several women and children. He was yelling “F*** this s*** man, I’m going home,” and “You white cops do what ever the f*** you want.”

While arresting the man for public intoxication, the officers noticed his zipper was down and his genitals were exposed.

The drunk guy then stated he may have grabbed the girl earlier. The first woman who flagged down the police said she wanted to press charges, and several witnesses confirmed the incident. He was arrested for public intoxication and sexual battery.

• Officers were alerted to some suspicious behavior and found two young men walking down the middle of the road in the Parkside neighborhood around lunchtime. The officers stopped them, but one of them kept walking, and then eventually came back. They were behaving oddly, and one of the officers asked if he could check them for weapons. A pat down revealed a gun in the front waistband of one of the subjects. A struggle ensued, with the subject resisting and trying to draw the weapon on the officers. At one point, an officer grabbed the gun’s slide, preventing it from firing when the young man tried to pull the trigger. The subject continued to resist, kicking and headbutting officers. A K–9 unit was called to assist and the man was bitten. The subject was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a concealed weapon and failure to use the sidewalk by a pedestrian.

• A citizen filed a complaint after reporting that police had been called to her residence the previous night in reference to a woman breaking her front door with a large stick. She heard the woman beating on the door with the stick and was told by her neighbors that police had been called. She said officers never came to talk to her about it or write a report. She wanted information about the woman who committed the crime so the door could be replaced.

• Officers responded to a threat report on the eastside. The woman who called them advised she had been visiting a family friend earlier in the evening, and then called a taxi and returned home. Several hours later, the woman’s friend showed up at her home and accused her of stealing a ring worth $700. The friend was accompanied by two other women. During the confrontation, the friend stated she would “burn down” the woman’s house and “beat her ass.” There were witnesses. The officer then spoke to the other woman, who said she discovered the ring was missing after the visit. She verified she had confronted the woman, but denied making threats. Both women wished to have documentation of the incident, and so both were issued CRN cards and advised about warrant procedures.
