• At 6:41 p.m. on Aug. 21, officers responded to the 300 block of South Walnut Street in reference to a 45-year-old male being disorderly. Upon arrival, a 43-year-old female advised the suspect threatened to burn his own house down and that he was drunk and acting crazy. The suspect confirmed he made the statement he was going to burn his house down but he didn’t mean it and that “he would never do such a thing” and went on to state that he would never hurt his family. Police advised he was being warned for disorderly conduct. The suspect advised he would “straighten up” and the officer wouldn’t have to return.
• At 4:57 p.m. on Aug. 21, police met with a 62-year-old male in reference to an ongoing issue that he said he is having with a 36-year-old Sabina male. He said that he dated the suspect’s mother for many years and they recently broke up. He said since then the suspect has been making threats towards him which he has documented with the Sheriff’s Office. He advised that today when he went to his truck after work, he found that someone had dumped a handful of screws under his driver’s side rear tires. He said that it looked as if someone had also put drywall dust on his truck and “had thrown a drink at it.” There was no permanent damage done to the truck; his daughter took pictures of the screws and emailed them to the officer. The victim believes it was the suspect who had done this but had no proof. “I told (the victim) I would document this for him and suggested that he park his vehicle where it could be monitored by cameras,” the report states.
• At 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 22, police responded to 1-99 block of Fulton Street and spoke with several people who advised two of their vehicles were egged. The victims — a 46-year-old Beavercreek male and a 21-year-old Morrow female — had suspicions that the suspects were juveniles who resided at another Fulton Street location. Their suspicions were due to juveniles making “sexual statements” toward residents at another Fulton Street location. Police made contact with a juvenile who denied involvement in the egging incident. The report indicates the officer had no other viable evidence to move forward with the investigation at the time.
• At 2:01 p.m. on Aug. 25, police responded to a dog bite report at the 900 block of North South Street. A male subject told his mother — age 36 — he bent down to pick something up and the suspected dog bit him on the face. The victim’s father took him for medical care and had just left when the mother called the police. The dog owner — a 41-year-old female — said it happened in her driveway right behind her car. She could not recall when the dog last had shots and was going to try to find out. The officer advised her that the Health Department would want the dog quarantined for 10 days. And they advised her that someone from the Health Department and/or the Dog Warden would be in contact with her. According to the report, the victim would be transferred to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati.
• Police received a report of a possible sex offense. A 44-year-old Jamestown male is listed as the suspect.
