September 7, 2006


Law enforcement report

¢ Lawrence police are investigating a report that a man in his mid-20s raped a 19-year-old female acquaintance early Friday morning at a home in north-central Lawrence. Alcohol is being investigated as a factor.

¢ Eudora police on Wednesday identified the father and daughter struck by a car Monday evening while riding a bicycle as Aaron Bell, 30, and Emalee Bell, 3. Condition reports were not available Wednesday. Aaron Bell was taken to University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, Kan., and Emalee was taken to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. She was not listed as a patient Wednesday.

The driver of the vehicle that struck them, 17-year-old Clara Spring of Eudora, was not cited. Police said she told them the sun was in her eyes.

Injury accidents

¢ A man knocked on neighbors' doors along the 800 block of East 14th Street Wednesday night, claiming he was struck by a vehicle while riding his moped.

Lawrence Police and Douglas County Fire & Medical responded to the scene about 10:30 p.m., then transported the man to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

A neighbor on the scene reported that the man crawled to her door and asked for help. He had apparently suffered head, neck and chest injuries and complained of numbness in his hands, the neighbor said.

Police could not comment at the scene, and no further details were available at presstime.

No prank fire pulls at KU yet?What gives?

Some new fire alarms have an ink dispenser that gets ink on the hands of the perp. Not sure if KU has installed these as of yet, but I hope they do. For the sake of the decent people that have to get out of bed in the middle of the night because of some persons worthless jerk kids.

uh, i'm pretty sure the false alarm at the bottom of the list is at KU (1425 Jayhawk Blvd).

1425 jayhawk Blvd is Watson library, where there are lots of false alarms, not b/c people pull them but b/c the alarms seem to be a bit oversensitive. For instance, if there's a thunderstorm and the power flickers, the fire alarm goes off. Big time fun.
