Donor offers money to fix vandalized buses An anonymous donor offered $500 to fix two Douglas County Senior Services buses that were recently vandalized, officials said Wednesday. The donation will pay to fix broken windows and a wheelchair lift in two vehicles that were damaged last week, DCSS executive director Jessie Ann Lusher said. In the file photo above, taken before the buses were vandalized, one of the buses is used by a senior citizen to get a ride to a bookstore. One of the buses was repaired on Wednesday, and the second is scheduled for repairs by Monday, Lusher said. The donor, a senior citizen, has given money to the agency in the past and simply wanted to increase her generosity, Lusher said. “It truly makes you feel better about the situation,” she said. “It restores your faith in humanity.” Police on Wednesday still hadn’t arrested anyone for the vandalism. _________________________________ Crime: Stabbing victim refuses to cooperate with police A Lawrence man walked out of Lawrence Memorial Hospital before receiving treatment for a stab wound, police said Wednesday. Police responded shortly after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday to LMH, where the 24-year-old victim had arrived, suffering from a single stab wound to the lower left side of his belly, police said. The victim refused to assist the police. Investigators, however, found and interviewed the 30-year-old suspect, who said that he had stabbed the man because the 24-year-old had struck him with a board, police said. No arrests were made. The stabbing victim, who was cut with a small knife, wasn’t seriously injured, police said. Alcohol was suspected as a factor in the altercation, police said. _________________________________ Education: 11-year-old interviewed about Cordley threat Police identified and interviewed an 11-year-old boy Tuesday in connection with the latest threat reported at Cordley School. The threat was reported Friday, police said. Principal Kim Bodensteiner sent letters home with students explaining to parents that classes would continue at the school. Reports on the incident and the interview will be forwarded to the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office for possible charges, police said. The student was suspended from school for five days, said Julie Boyle, director of communications for Lawrence public schools. If Bodensteiner thinks further action is warranted, an administrative disciplinary hearing will be scheduled to be attended by the student’s parents and school administrators, but Boyle said she hadn’t been informed of such a meeting. The identity of the student was withheld by authorities. Friday’s threat was the third in a week at Cordley, 1837 Vt. Police said the student wasn’t suspected in the previous threats.
