A male victim called police to report that a woman he picked up at Tootsie’s Lounge earlier in the evening freaked out when he put the moves on her back at his place. The man said he was giving the woman a massage when she suddenly “went wild and began pulling his hair.” The female suspect then grabbed a metal microphone stand and began swinging it in an attempt to hit the victim, police say. When the man retreated to a closet for safety, the perp began throwing objects at the door, prompting the thwarted paramour to make a run for the front door. The man returned to his Second Avenue apartment a short time later and found his would-be hookup had busted two laptops, torn down curtains and broken the shower door. She also made off with his cell phone, two cameras, car keys, a pair of cowboy boots and all his credit cards, which she used to go on a $3,000 shopping spree the next day. When police finally caught up with the 47-year-old suspect, she was charged with aggravated assault, vandalism and theft.
A Hermitage man returned home to find the worker he had hired to hang Sheetrock at his house had been drinking beer all day on the job. The homeowner paid the man for his labor and offered to drive him home, but the worker instead went ballistic because he was not satisfied with his earnings. The white male suspect began spitting on the victim—who happens to be Hispanic—and calling him a “thief and an illegal alien.” The victim then called police on the suspect, who continued spitting on him and chasing him around the premises. The perp then picked up a hammer and threatened to “bust him in the head” and “take him down.” Officers responded to the scene and arrested the 43-year-old suspect for aggravated assault.
Shock and aw naw
Police responded to a disturbance on the 800 block of Wedgewood Avenue, where they interviewed a woman who said her sister had attempted to shoot her with a stun gun during an argument. The victim told police she managed to overpower the suspect and lock her in a closet before getting zapped. When officers found the suspect in an upstairs coat closet, she said she didn’t know anything about a stun gun, but after a brief search, the weapon was found stashed in an air vent on the ceiling. The woman, 36, was then booked for aggravated assault.
