WILMINGTON — The following report is generated from incident reports provided by the Wilmington Police Department. All those arrested are presumed innocent until possibly found guilty in court. Charges may be dropped or changed in court.

Wilmington police recently processed the following reports:

• At 2:04 a.m. on Sept. 28, officers attempted to make an arrest on a wanted person at the hotel on Fife Avenue. Upon further investigation, officers located 10 juveniles who were consuming alcoholic beverages inside the hotel room. “It was determined the wanted subject rented the room for the juveniles so they could celebrate a birthday party and consume alcoholic beverages,” the report states. One juvenile from the Cincinnati area was found to be unresponsive. The Wilmington Fire Department responded to the hotel room and were unable to get the juvenile to respond. The juvenile was transported to Clinton Memorial Hospital, which was finally able to get the juvenile to respond. Officers discovered the juvenile’s blood alcohol content tested 0.379. The report notes that a near-death experience or coma stages start at 0.40. The juvenile’s mother responded from Cincinnati to be with them at CMH. All other juveniles were released to parents on the scene. It was reported an adult was at the hotel room earlier in the day; however, officers were unable to determine the identity at this time.

• Police arrested a 41-year-old male for alleged criminal trespass after responding to a trespassing report at a Randolph Street residence at 10:16 a.m. on Sept. 28. According to the report, the suspect was making threatening comments to the residents of a property he was trespassed from.

The seal was removed from the refrigerator and “thrown upstairs over a door and a can of Pepsi was thrown against the wall near the stairs,” the report states. There were no signs of forced entry and the windows were locked and secure. The reportee advised that the bicycle had orange rims and was gray in color and had a light on the left side handlebar that was red/maroon in color. The seat was black and had a greenish-blue tint to the rear of the seat.
