1 Aggravated Assault-
320 W. Grace Street, 10/30/09, Vanessa Mitchell, 21 was assaulted by her roommate, Sarah Rodriguez, 21. Rodriguez was arrested.
There were 49 thefts from motor vehicles during the month of October. The majority happened in the Monroe Ward and City Center neighborhoods. I have requested some additional officer’s to patrol in these areas especially when we have activities taking place at the coliseum, the National theatre and Center Stage. On a positive note, Patrol officers did make 6 arrests involving individuals breaking into vehicles. This occurred in the last week of October so we anticipate a decrease in this type of crime.
Graffiti seems to be appearing everywhere throughout our Sector. I cannot think of a neighborhood that has not been “tagged”. These individuals do not think about the damage they are causing to the businesses when they paint on walls and vehicles. They are very hard to catch but maybe if we all work together we could catch one or two. Call us if you see anything suspicious taking place.
If you are aware of crime or would like to give information call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000. Please continue to report suspicious persons or activities to the police as soon as possible. The non emergency number is 646-5100.
Sector 413 Officer Thomas Neale was awarded the 4th Precinct Officer of the Month. Congratulations Officer Neale! Officer Neale apprehended a theft from a motor vehicle suspect after he observed the individual outside of a car. After a short foot pursuit the subject was apprehended and the stolen property was returned to the owner.
During the month of October, Sector 413 officers answered 1880 radio calls and conducted 155 field interviews. These numbers reflect only Sector 413; it does not include the rest of the Precinct. That is a lot of radio calls!
I want to thank the officers, detectives and community for their continued support in making Sector 413 a better place to live and work.
Lt. Yvonne Baltz- Fourth Precinct – Sector 413 – (o) 646-4239
