With the temporary outage of the scanner, it’s been a week since we had any crime news. Here’s some cd-relevant info about an assault last week, as reported by the PI:
About 6:30 p.m., a man was sitting in the parking lot of the Midtown Center in the 1100 block of 23rd Avenue. Two others were in the vehicle, and one tried to back it out of a parking space. Another car blocked their path and began yelling after a request to move.
An argument ensued and one of the men in the car trying to exit was punched in the face, according to police. A woman there tried to call 911, but had the phone slapped from her hand.
“During the argument, the three suspects made statements with words to the effect of, ‘This is union St’ and ‘do you know where you are, this is union,'” officer Steven Bale wrote in his report.
The police report says the incident may have been related to the “Union Street BGD” gang, which is a new one for us.
Stay tuned for the return of the scanner this coming Monday…
