A man reported at 5:59 p.m. that his bag had gone missing after he placed it on the ground on Liberty Street “for a minute” the previous Friday. The bag reportedly contained two asthma inhalers and cigarettes.

Officers responded to 17 Broadway after an 11:25 p.m. report that an “undesirable” was on the front steps there and spoke to a man: “He related he wanted to stay at his friend’s house for the night, but his friend’s wife wanted him to leave. He was escorted off the property and agreed not to return.”


A female reported at 2:26 a.m. that she’d been approached by a white man — described as bald and about 45 years old — in a black vehicle as she walked home from the 7-Eleven on North Street. First he pulled along side her and asked if she needed a ride; after being told she didn’t, he continued to drive along side her and yelled at her to “get in the car,” according to the log. The female ran home to her residence. Police were unable to locate the man.

A Cabot Street woman reported at 10:16 a.m. that she had sent $1,430 to somebody via Western Union after somebody who wanted to buy her bed on Craigslist had sent her a check for $1,630 and told her to “sent the rest of the monies back to them.” An officer advised her this was a “common scam” and advised her that Bank of America “should be assisting her more since they cashed the check.”

A woman on Hillside Avenue told police about 12:30 p.m. that a suspicious man who had identified himself as a state trooper — but hadn’t shown identification — has asked about her boyfriend. Police advised both individuals to contact police if the man returned.

Police responded to Washington and New Derby streets at 12:43 p.m. to check on a female who was reported to be “crawling on the pavement.” An officer wrote later: “Party stating she was trying to help a mouse with a broken leg [be]cause it’s one of God’s creatures. She was checked out and sent on her way.”
