• Police arrested a 34-year-old male for alleged criminal trespass, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct after responding to a 911 call on Rombach Avenue at 11:33 a.m. on Feb. 18. According to the report, units responded to the report of a panic alarm triggered by a medical facility on Rombach Avenue. While units responded, dispatch was able to make contact with the medical facility and they advised dispatch that a male subject was under the influence of drugs and being disorderly. Police made contact with the suspect and he was warned and also trespassed from the property, the report states. After the suspect was warned and ordered to leave, the suspect returned to the property a few minutes later and attempted to get into his mother’s vehicle and enter the medical facility. It was at this point the nurses called police. Upon arrival again, the nurses had locked the doors to the office, concerned for the safety of their patients and themselves. The suspect was later located at a restaurant down the street. The suspect was told he was under arrest at which point he began resisting arrest and pulling away from officers while they attempted to cuff him, the report stated. The suspect also attempted to kick the officers while trying to search the suspect prior to placing him in the patrol car, they reported. A large pocket knife was removed from the suspect’s coat pocket. The suspect also attempted to put his foot in the doorway so an officer could not shut the door. The suspect continued to be disorderly at the Clinton County Jail while trying to get him processed, the report stated.
