Last straw: At 4:53 p.m., a caller in the 3800 block of Southeast Newton Street asked police to remove an unwanted guest from a home. The caller was not the tenant, but was calling out of concern for the tenant, as the visitor had been overheard threatening to punch someone and stab them with an ice pick. Officers responded and removed the visitor, then spoke with the victim, who admitted being the victim of several incidents of domestic violence. The unwanted guest was arrested, and denied threatening the victim, but admitted to kicking in the front door once.

Not constructive: At 8:22 a.m., a Waste Management driver contacted police about a threatening incident that occurred earlier in the morning in the 9200 block of Merritt Avenue Southeast. The driver said he’d honked his horn at a construction truck so it would move, and the driver of that truck became very angry, swearing at him and trying to get at him. Police could not follow up because the driver could not describe the worker, and hadn’t reported the incident right away.

In memory: At 7:05 a.m., police received a report of a suspicious man at the ball fields in the 39800 block of Southeast Park Street.
