Law enforcement report

¢ Lawrence Police arrested a 47-year-old Lawrence man for charges including aggravated robbery, battery, criminal restraint and DUI after an incident that lasted from roughly 9:30 p.m. to 11:41 p.m. Monday in the 2100 block of Quail Creek Drive. A 51-year-old woman who is listed on a report as a girlfriend of the suspect told police the man came into her home, yelled at her, restrained her in a chair where she had been sitting and then pulled her off the chair. She told police she eventually got the man to leave and locked her front door, but that he apparently came back in through her basement. She walked out of the home and called 911 on her cell phone, but he came out of the front door, took her phone and left on foot, she told police. He was arrested in a traffic stop at 11:52 p.m. Police believe alcohol was a contributing factor.

"...charges including aggravated robbery, battery, criminal restraint and DUI after an incident that lasted from roughly 9:30 p.m. to 11:41 p.m. Monday in the 2100 block of Quail Creek Drive." ++++ Pretty prominent area of town.I thought this only went on in Topeka.(smirksmirk) Money does not equal happiness and poor does not equal oppression.Alcoholism sees no race,economy,age.
